Instrumental Partners

Do you have a gently-used orchestra or band instrument you are no longer using? If you do, you can help area students. Some schools don’t have enough instruments to go around, and many students can’t afford to rent or buy instruments. 91.9 WFPK is working in conjunction with Jefferson County Public Schools in Kentucky, plus the New Albany-Floyd County Public Schools in Southern Indiana to place instruments in the hands of deserving students.

Donate your used instrument to 91.9 WFPK and get a tax deduction, to the extent allowed by the I.R.S. If your instrument needs repair, our community partners include music stores that will assist with any repair and with delivering instruments to identified schools.

If you’d like to participate in WFPK’s Instrumental Partners project, but don’t have an instrument to donate, you can still help by making a monetary donation to the Instrumental Partners program. These funds will be used to help repair instruments that other listeners donate.

All kinds of band and orchestra instruments are needed in student sizes and full-sizes:


  • Baritones
  • Cornets
  • French Horns
  • Sousaphones
  • Trombones
  • Trumpets
  • Tubas


  • Drumsets
  • Snare drums with stands


  • Basses
  • Cellos
  • Violas
  • Violins


  • Bassoons
  • Clarinets
  • Flutes
  • Oboes
  • Piccolos
  • Saxophones

Help a child discover the joy of music by participating in 91.9 WFPK’s Instrumental Partners project. Call (502) 814-6500 to learn how you can participate in this important program.

You may also email us your name, address and phone number, along with a description of the instrument you’d like to donate. Volunteers are available to come to your home to pick up the instrument if needed.

Instrumental Partners is sponsored by PNC Wealth Management and 91.9 WFPK.
