Do you have a dusty, lonely instrument that needs a child? New and good quality, functioning used instruments are being accepted by the Long Beach Unified School District. Transform idle instruments into tax deductions by donating them to local schools. Instruments needed are violin, cello, flute, clarinet, saxophone, trumpet and trombone.
Monetary donations toward the cause also are being accepted by the nonprofit Long Beach Education Foundation at lbschools.net/give. Select the “Musical Instruments” designation in the dropdown menu to make a secure, online, tax deductible donation.
Music programs at LBUSD schools have earned national honors for their excellence, including GRAMMY Signature School awards. Students here routinely perform with some of the world’s top musicians at national and international festivals. Experience LBUSD's musical excellence first-hand at the annual Band Spectactular on Nov. 15.
