Do We Accept Pianos/Organs?
The Elville Center accepts most all types of musical instruments for donation; however, the one challenge we have as far as musical instrument donations, are pianos/organs, and cannot accept them at this time. The reasons for this are twofold. One, we simply do not have a place to store pianos here at our office, which is within the law firm of Elville and Associates’ office in Columbia. And thus, two, to accept a piano, we would need a school music program to have an immediate need for the piano before we accept it so we can then plan to move it to the school. We have done this a number of times before over the years; however, with none of our schools music partners currently in need of a piano, at this time we have no choice but to respectfully decline the donation request.
There are a couple of reputable organizations that may be able to assist you. They are: https://www.beethovenfoundation.com/donatepiano — the Beethoven Foundation https://pianosforeducation.org/donate-piano/ — Pianos for Education
