In-Kind Gifts

Books, Brushes & Bands for Education has an extensive collection of instruments, reference materials, and performance wear available for rent. These are among the assets that ensure the quality of programming at BBB4E. It is because of the thoughtfulness of donors that our library offerings continue to grow.  When making a gift of property, you will be asked to complete a property donation form, which will ensure that you receive a proper receipt for your donation.

BBBB4E will gladly accept donations of instruments in working order to incorporate into our collection of instruments available for rent to our students.  We are currently in need of two pianos, woodwind, brass, and percussion instruments.

Music Supplies

Help keep our students in tune and in time by donating your extra metronomes, tuners, sets of strings, reeds, cleaning kits, and other music supplies to our library. They will definitely be put to good use!

Art Supplies

Throughout the year, BBB4E holds different art classes and workshops for students of all ages. To help keep the cost down for these, we are always looking for: drawing paper, colored pencils, erasers, markers, crayons, paint brushes, water color paints, acrylic paints, small stretched canvases, scissors, rulers, drawing triangles, mat board, and masking tape.

Performance Wear for Students

BBB4E students of all ages and levels hone their performance skills by participating in our student concerts and community performances throughout the year.  Help our students look their best onstage by donating gently used black or white clothing to our collection of performance wear available for loan.  For boys and young men ages 4-22: black pants or jackets, white shirts.  For girls and young women ages 4-22: black pants or white blouses. New black, dress shoes and black socks for both men and women ages 4-22 are welcome.

No used shoes or socks will be accepted at this time, thank you.
