FAQ

Are you a non-profit?

How long has this been around?

Instruments in the Cloud received its first donation in January 2015.

Sounds great, but I don't have an instrument to give. How else can I help?

Music programs also need dollars to cover maintenance and repair costs, and other costs associated with making sure every student can participate. Find a music program and donate dollars instead of a musical instrument.

Does Instruments in the Cloud cost anything for our school to use?

No. Instruments in the Cloud is a free resource that helps teachers build support for new and growing music programs.

Do you take pianos and organs?

We don't facilitate the donation of pianos and organs, but we'd be glad to refer you to another nonprofit that might be able to help. Please reach out through the contact form on our website.

What if my instrument isn't in the best shape? What do I do then?

We encourage you to take the instrument to a repair shop before donating it. You can get these repairs addressed before donating, or you can donate dollars along with the instrument to help cover the repair costs. We're always happy to connect you to musical instrument repair technicians near you.
