Ways to get involved
Support us with a donation
From rock music schools to youth orchestras, from rap workshops to music leadership training, from music therapy sessions to summer school concerts: we use music to bridge divides, connect communities, and heal the wounds of war.
Your donations, big and small, help us deliver music programs that impact thousands of people. Please consider supporting Musicians Without Borders today.
Become a Changemaker
Our programs bring lasting positive change – because we invest time, energy and patience to make them sustainable and locally-owned. That type of long-term investment needs a steady base of support – which is where Changemakers come in.
This community is an important driving force supporting the slow and steady work of lasting social change. Changemakers’ monthly donations allow us to plan ahead, improving our methods and growing our programs, which helps us bring more music every day to those who need it most.
Become a Changemaker by pledging a monthly donation to Musicians Without Borders. No strings attached: you can cancel your recurring donation at any time.

Give to the instrument fund
To donate musical instruments or equipment, please contact our instrument fund coordinator Irma Kort via email.
Please note that at the moment, unless you can provide transport yourself, donations of instruments are only possible in the Netherlands.
The fund has been made possible with the help of:
- Many generous individuals, associations, and foundations who donate their instruments,
- Instrument builders and restorers who donate their time and expertise,
- Friends and colleagues who help transport instruments where they need to go.
