Donate to the Instrument Repair Fund

Give Them Music

Since 2017, Milwaukee residents have donated hundreds of no longer played instruments from their closets, attics, and basements. These once-cherished, now-worn instruments require repairs before gaining new life in the hands of children. By making a gift to the WCM Instrument Repair Fund, you have the power to shape a musical journey.
