There are over 1,000 broken musical instruments owned by The School District of Philadelphia. With your tax-deductible donation, starting at $50 you can help fix an instrument and put it back into the hands of a child. Please browse our homepage that documents hundreds of these broken instruments and pick out the one you’d like to adopt today. We will attach your name (or the name of the loved one you are choosing to honor with this donation) to that instrument’s case so that your contribution is recognized by each child who will play this repaired instrument into the future.

All donations go directly to the School District of Philadelphia’s Adopt an Instrument Program!
