Wes Slater Instrument Donation Program

Can you donate an instrument?

Everytime we work with a community, we also offer a range of instruments to program participants, thanks to the Wes Slater Instrument Donation Program.

If you would like to support a budding musican who doesn’t have the means or access to buy an instrument, donate one today!

Since 2012, we have been re-homed over 500 second hand instruments to musicians in need.

Help us take your pre-loved instrument to a new home. We appreciate donations of new and used music equipment in all major cities.
