It costs a lot to deliver a program that's free of charge.  We do not charge the children or their families to join the program, and that's only possible by the funding we get from our corporate donors and people like you.  Your money goes a long way – almost 90% of our donations go directly to the program.

Examples of how your donation helps:

  • $5000 - Covers the cost for one child for an entire year
  • $3500 - Buys instruments for a quartet: violin, viola, cello, and double bass
  • $2000 - Provides instruments for a trio: violin, viola, and cello
  • $1500 - Buys one double bass for a child
  • $1000 - Buys one cello
  • $500 - Buys a violin or viola
  • $350 - Gives one child a healthy snack every day during the program
  • $250 - Helps us buy music for the children
  • $100 - Helps to cover the general costs including teachers and instruments

Is there a Stradivarius in your attic?
Is your old violin, viola, or cello gathering dust?  Been a while since you picked up your trumpet or clarinet?  Make it sing again by donating it to Sistema Toronto. You'll be doing so much to transform the life of a child.

If you would like to give us your old instrument, we’ll have it expertly appraised and issue you with a tax receipt for its fair market value.

Contact us at 416-545-0200 or david.visentin@sistema-toronto.ca for more details.  What a great way to bring that silent music-maker back to life.  And maybe it really is a Strad!
