About Musicopia

Musicopia – a Philadelphia-based, non-profit music education organization – is looking for new or gently used instruments for their Gift of Music Program. Musicopia’s Gift of Music program collects, repairs, and places donated instruments in schools with students who are eager to play but cannot afford an instrument. Through this statewide initiative, spearheaded by Musicopia for the Philadelphia region, Musicopia has collected over 1000 instruments for schools in need. With the public’s help, they hold instrument donation drives and benefit concerts throughout the year, enabling them to give the Gift of Music to children who would love to play an instrument but do not have resources to buy or rent the needed equipment.
Musicopia also accepts donations for the Extra Measure Fund which helps them repair and refurbish donated instruments right away and put them quickly into the hands of an eager young musician. Gifts of any amount are welcome. As a general guide, it costs an average of $25 to repair and instrument. Donations may be made by check, payable to “Musicopia,” and mailed to the address below or via the “Donate Now” button on their website, www.Musicopia.net.
