Donate an Instrument - San Jose Jazz

Donate an Instrument

Donate an instrument now to support SJZ's music education program, Progressions.

San Jose Jazz believes that arts education is an equity issue. With your donations, we look to secure enough instruments to continue to provide a free instrument to all students that want to participate in Progressions, our highly praised music program in the Franklin-McKinley School District, as it returns to in-person instruction.

We accept all instruments in playable condition. However, we’re especially in need of the following instruments. All instrument donations are tax-deductible:

  • String Instruments (guitars, violins, cellos in all sizes)
  • Wind Instruments (Trumpets, trombones, flutes, clarinets)
  • Percussion instruments (shakers, small hand drums, bells, etc.)
  • Music Technology (Small digital keyboards, small midi controllers, music production equipment)
  • Orff Instruments (Xylophones, Glockenspiels, Marimbas)

Don’t have an instrument to donate? No problem. We also need financial support to offset the cost of refurbishing and maintaining the instruments. Make a contribution online now.

To donate an instrument, email Monique Valenzuela to make arrangements for pickup or dropoff.
