CMCB is currently accepting the following new or gently used instrument donations:

  • Brass instruments
  • Digital Keyboards/Keyboard Stands
  • Guitars
  • Percussion instruments

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

How to Donate

If you are interested in donating your instrument, please fill out the form below (scroll to the bottom). Please note that CMCB is not responsible for donation transportation or support.

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 you would like to receive a tax receipt, then please follow the below instructions based on the estimated value:

$5000+ estimated value

  • Provide an appraisal for the donation to CMCB 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.
  • File IRS form 8283 (It generally takes minimal time to complete!)

If the value of your donation is less than $5,000 or you do not need a tax receipt for your donation, then you can contact CMCB using the instrument donation form in order to arrange a time to drop off your instrument.

Other Goods and Services

CMCB 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 contact the Development Office at
