In-Kind Gifts

You can help students at Merit School of Music develop as musicians by making a tax-deductible gift of property. Below are some guidelines to consider when making your donation! When making a gift of property, you will be asked to complete a property donation form which will serve as your receipt for the gift.

 

Instruments
Merit School of Music will gladly accept donations of instruments in working order to make instrument loans available to our students. We need good quality brass and woodwind instruments, as well as higher-level string instruments. We also need empty string, brass, and woodwind cases that are in good working condition. We are no longer able to accept pianos or folk instruments.

Music Supplies
Help keep our students in tune and in time by donating your extra metronomes, tuners, sets of strings, and other music supplies to our library.

Sheet Music
Merit cannot accept sheet music donations at this time.

Music Recordings
Merit has an extensive collection of music recordings available for loan to our students. Due to space constraints, we are not currently accepting music recordings.

Performance Wear for Students
Help our students look their best onstage by donating gently used black or white clothing to our collection of performance wear available for loan. We are looking for black pants, skirts, and jackets; white shirts and blouses; and dress shoes for students ages 5-18.
