Instrument Donations

While we love musical instruments of every kind, WCMS is currently accepting the following new or gently used instrument donations.

  • Grand Pianos
  • Alto Flutes
  • Piccolos
  • Baritone Saxophones
  • C Trumpets

Unfortunately, we are unable to take upright acoustic piano donations at this time. We are also unable to accept instruments that need significant repair.

If you have instruments that are not on our current list, we recommend contacting Instrument Angels, https://www.instrumentalangels.org.

Currently, we are unable to accept donations of sheet music, method books, CDs, cassettes, or LPs.

Things to Know

Instrument donations are 100% tax deductible at the value estimated. Under IRS regulations, it is up to the donor to attest to the value of the donated item.

If the value is $5000+, you must provide an appraisal for the donation to WCMS by a qualified appraiser, arranged and paid for by the donor, and signed and dated no earlier than 60 days before you contribute the property. You must receive the appraisal before the due date of the return on which you claim it.

You may be required to file IRS form 8283.

Other Goods and Services

WCMS may accept in-kind donations of other goods or services on an as-needed basis. If you are interested in making an in-kind donation, please fill out the form and we will respond to your inquiry.

If you have any questions, please email our Development Staff or call 781-721-2950.
