We believe every child deserves access to an instrument. Equally as important, we believe each instrument should have its own traveling case. A case allows a child to bring the instrument home, practice in their own environment, get creative with it, and “turn it up to 11”. Since 2015, we’ve provided tens of thousands of dollars worth of new and gently used instruments to schools all across the United States.

Used Instrument Donation Program
Newport Festivals Foundation has partnered with Rick’s Musical Instruments (of Cumberland, RI) to create a program that will place instruments in Rhode Island public schools. All are welcome to bring gently used instruments to Rick’s Musical Instruments or Bravo Musical Instruments in Rehoboth, MA and Newport Festivals Foundation will cover the costs to “clean up” and/or make minor repairs. Once the instrument is ready, Newport Festivals Foundation will match it with a public school in RI.
