Instrument Donation

Do you have an instrument at home collecting dust and not being played? Give new life to your instrument by giving it a new home! Palm Beach Symphony happily accepts donations of professional or amateur quality band and orchestral instruments for needy young musicians.

We ensure the instruments meet performance standards and then donate them to underserved Kindergarten – 12th grade students or school music programs in Palm Beach County. The instruments come fully equipped with appropriate accessories, such as bows, rosin, reeds, and mouth pieces, and are sanitized on site by masked instrument technicians. Once sanitized, the instrument case isn't opened until it is delivered to the student recipient.

Donate an Instrument

To donate an instrument, please provide your name, email, phone number, instrument type/make/brand, condition, and other pertinent information. If possible, attach photos. Please send the information to the Symphony directly by clicking here or call the Symphony administrative office at 561-655-2657.
