Band of Angels

Helping students in need find music through the generosity of others.

Thanks to the generosity of Band of Angels’ donors, Kansas City students in need are provided the musical instruments required to join band and orchestra programs.

How Does Band of Angels Work?

Band of Angels collects used music instruments from those who no longer want them and helps make them available to kids in need who couldn’t otherwise afford them. Donated instruments are refurbished and restored to playing condition before given to a student. Cash donations are accepted also, which are used to purchase instruments. With these instruments, students can join their school’s band and orchestra programs. Also, funds raised help send students to summer music camp with full scholarships.
