MwB’s Instrument Fund currently places second-hand instruments with our Palestine Community Music program, which operates in partnership with Sounds of Palestine and our Mitrovica Rock School.

Other Requests or Offers

If you would like to donate orchestral instruments or band equipment that do not appear on the lists, we may be able to help identify a new owner or a worthy cause. In the past, we were able to help an advanced student from Bosnia-Herzogovina to obtain a professional oboe and help the music school in Banja Luka to begin an oboe class using oboe donations from The Netherlands and England.

Donations of good string instruments are regularly directed to students in Bosnia-Herzogovina and Serbia. Please contact for more information.

Instrument Fund Volunteers
The fund has been made possible thanks to the help of many, generous individuals, associations and foundations who donate their instruments, instrument builders and restorers who donate their time and expertise and friends and colleagues who help transport instruments free of charge.
