Lonely Instruments Need Kids [LINK] is a program designed to give elementary and middle school children an opportunity to participate in school band and orchestra programs and other community musical youth organizations.  Donated instruments and cases are given to children who are financially unable to purchase or rent an instrument of their own.
​We Need Your Lonely Instruments
RAC is accepting donations of “lonely” instruments.  The community is encouraged to bring in any unwanted musical instruments for collection.  Your donation may be tax-deductible and donation paperwork will be provided.  Monetary donations to help cover costs of instrument repairs and purchases are also welcome.

Please drop off donated instruments at the Racine Arts Council, 409 Sixth Street during our regular operating hours: Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays Noon-5pm.
