Give - Time, Donations, Instruments

The Fine Arts Booster Group thrives on the generosity of our community. Support students in the arts by volunteering, giving used instruments, purchasing an ad in the school performance booklets or donating directly to the boosters. Read below about how to do this. Give online by clicking on the donate button link. Thank you!

Used Instruments — do you have a musical instrument in your home that you no longer need? IMG_0087.jpeg

Through our Play It Again, Ithaca program, we have placed over 200 instruments into the hands of students who might not otherwise have the opportunity to participate in band and orchestra in the Ithaca schools. Donated instruments in need of attention are repaired, and instruments are given to the Ithaca City School District for loan to students. Help us provide more instruments for all of the interested young musicians in our community. We welcome the donation of instruments or money to repair or purchase instruments. (At this time, upright pianos are not a need in the school district. Please direct this donation to one of our other Ithaca organizations, like the Ithaca Youth Bureau or GIAC. Electronic keyboards are accepted.)

The Fine Arts Boosters work together with the Ithaca City School District to make sure all students have access to instrumental music. Click here to donate your musical instrument!

We raise money through ad sponsorship sales in the performance booklets for all concerts and theatrical productions in the middle and high schools. In 2020 - 2021, we are adjusting to COVID 19 and will be using a different system… so email us at Ad sales supports Teacher Mini-grants. Place ads here or for information contact
