Thank you to all of our listeners who helped to make Play It Forward an overwhelming success! Through your generous donations, K-12 schools throughout Minnesota received new and used instruments to distribute to students in need through their music programs.

If you have an instrument that you weren't able to donate during the Play It Forward campaign, it's not too late! You can contact your local school and ask for the music department, or consider one of these nonprofit organizations that accept instruments year-round:
Vega Productions (supporting music and art in Minnesota K-12 public schools)
Saint Louis Park Community Band (supporting needy students in the St. Louis Park area)
Keys 4/4 Kids (accepting donated keyboard instruments, such as pianos, organs and accordions)
Kako Foundation (working in Minnesota to support arts education in Haiti)
Mr. Holland's Opus Foundation (mail your well-packaged instrument to support needy music programs throughout the US)
|Play it Forward: Classical MPR's Musical Instrument Drive is made possible in part by the Minnesota Legacy Amendment's Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund|
Sponsorship support is provided by Saint Mary's University and The College of St. Scholastica.
