Donate an Instrument

Donations of musical instruments enable OrKidstra to give Ottawa children the gift of music! We are extremely grateful to all who have donated instruments since the OrKidstra program was founded in 2007.

We are happy to accept the donation of all musical instruments in good working order. 


We’re especially interested in all playable band instruments, bassoons, cellos, violas, ¾ violins and crash cymbals. 

Please note: OrKidstra does not accept pianos and is currently not accepting student/beginner violins. 


Please contact the office to find out if the instrument that you would like to donate is suitable for the OrKidstra program. You can reach us by email at or by phone 613-859-3559.

We are happy to provide a tax receipt for all in-kind instrument donations which are accompanied by a current appraisal.

Thank you for your support!
