Instrumental Partners

Do you have a gently-used orchestra or band instrument you are no longer using? If you do, you can help area students. Some schools don’t have enough instruments to go around, and many students can’t afford to rent or buy instruments. Classical 90.5 is working in conjunction with Jefferson County Public Schools in Kentucky and the New Albany-Floyd County Public Schools in Southern Indiana to place instruments in the hands of deserving students.

Donate your used instrument to Classical 90.5 and get a tax deduction, to the extent allowed by the I.R.S. If your instrument needs repair, our community partners include music stores that will assist with any repair and with delivering instruments to identified schools.

If you’d like to participate in Classical 90.5′s Instrumental Partners project, but don’t have an instrument to donate, you can still help by making a monetary donation to the Programming Fund, designated for Instrumental Partners. These funds will be used to help repair instruments that other listeners donate.

    I love this program and I’m going to connect my family (in Oregon) with a way of donating directly on line as a way of giving for Christmas (we give charitable gifts to our institutions of choice).
