Program Overview - Updated 11/23/21
Piano Bank is Utah’s premier piano adoption program. We accept piano donations in need of minimal repair to excellent condition and place them in homes with families of dedicated students who do not have the financial means to obtain a piano. Additionally, we place pianos in public spaces to promote music-making in our community. We are committed to creating access to quality pianos, music education, and performance for youth and adults residing in Utah.
To begin the donation process, please fill out the following online application. Once received, Mundi Project staff will make an initial assessment based on the application information. If it passes, we will send one of our certified piano technicians to assess the instrument. Based on their recommendation, and the needs of the program, we will either accept or decline the piano.
The second phase of the donation process will either consist of moving the piano into storage with Barrus Pianos, or leaving the piano at the donor's location until we find a suitable applicant (which can take 2-3 months).
If the piano is accepted, donors will be asked to pay a $200 moving fee prior to the piano being moved. This fee amount represents the nonprofit discount we receive when moving pianos; private moves typically cost $250-$300. A staff member will send payment information after piano acceptance.
Mundi Project reserves the right to utilize piano donations in a way that best serves the overall mission to actively break down socio-economic and generational barriers by providing quality music experiences for all. Once the piano is placed, we will share with donors some information about the recipients of their piano, which may include photos, videos, and stories.
