How to Donate a Piano to Charity
A piano can provide years of enjoyment for kids and adults alike—but perhaps you have one that you can no longer use or accommodate. There are many non-profit organizations that can help find a new home for your instrument, and your donation may even qualify for a tax deduction. From schools and churches to camps and seniors’ facilities, the gift of a piano is a generous way to contribute.
Finding a new home for your piano
Before you begin to seek a new home for your piano, assess the condition and usability of your instrument. You may consider having a piano technician examine the instrument. You may also want to take some photos of the piano and note the brand, type, and any other features that may be of interest to the new owners.
There may be local organizations in your area that could use a new or gently used piano. Think about churches, schools, nursing homes and other facilities that have musical programming needs. Alternatively, if your piano no longer works, a theater troupe may be able to use it as a prop for productions. Reach out to any such organization you know of and ask whether they would be open to a piano donation.
If you are unable to locate a group that wants your piano, try contacting a local piano shop to see if they know of any donation outlets. You can also go online to one of several sites that will let you list your piano or otherwise help you find a new home for it.
Thec Piano Mover.com is a Full service piano Restoration Company and we also help to find a new home for serviceable pianos before they end up in landfills. Instruments are listed by state for ease of use by organizations or families that seek a piano. The Piano Mover helps to take care of such details as inspection or appraisal of the piano, as well as arranging for moving. You can contact the Piano Mover 516 381-2328 www.thepianomover.com firstname.lastname@example.org
After you have found a new home for your piano, the instrument will need to be transported by professional movers. Be sure to discuss payment for such with your charitable organization, since you may be expected to cover the expense.(the Piano Move is also a donation!) Depending on the value of your donation, you may need to file IRS form 8283. You may be able to list the gift as a charitable donation, so check with the IRS.

How Professional Piano Movers Move Upright and Grand Pianos
For piano movers, the most important part of piano moving is packing the piano. This means wrapping the piano in a series of blankets so that the surface of the piano isn’t scuffed or gouged (refinishing a piano can be very expensive). Making sure the piano is moved in a way that avoids damaging bumps and scrapes is a piano mover’s second most important task. Any professional piano mover worth their salt will have special tools for the job: like a piano dolly (a heavy duty 4-wheeled dolly with uni-directional wheels that can support a piano’s weight) and a piano board (a long board that the piano is strapped to for the purpose of moving the piano).
As a piano moving expert we can offer distinct advantages:
- Piano movers will prepare the grand piano for moving: Remove the lyre of the piano, the lid of the piano and the piano lid hinges. Wrap the piano parts in blankets. Lay two blankets over the top of the piano board.
- While two piano movers hold the piano up, a third piano mover removes the left and rear piano legs. The piano legs will either screw off or be released at the turn of a wooden or metal tab.
- The piano movers then ease the piano on to the piano board.
- The Piano movers then remove the remaining (right) leg.
- Next, the piano movers wrap the piano with moving blankets leaving some air vents so there’s no condensation inside the piano.
- The piano movers then strap the piano to the piano board making sure that any belts or buckles from the straps do not gouge the sides of the piano.
- The grand piano on the piano board is then placed on a sturdy, four-wheeled piano dolly by piano movers.
- The piano movers can now move the piano around and into a truck safely.
- The Piano movers then remove the remaining (right) leg.

Newly strung pianos (including new pianos and newly rebuilt pianos) should be tuned 3-4 times the first year. Subsequently, most pianos should be tuned twice a year. Pianos that are used for performance or for recording will need to be tuned more often.
Pianos are damaged by extreme heat as well as extreme cold. Ideally, a piano is kept in a room in which the temperature is normal and constant (around 68° F). The temperature should not be allowed to fall below 45° F and should not exceed 90° F.
Extremes of humidity as well as large changes in humidity are both harmful to pianos. Ideally, a piano will be maintained in a room in which the relative humidity remains constant year-round. In a dry climate such as is found in the U.S. Southwest, a relative humidity in the 20% to 30% range is a good objective. In a varied climate such as is found in the U.S. Northeast, the relative humidity should be kept between 40% and 45%. Room humidifiers should be used whenever possible in those parts of the world in which there are cold, dry winters. The Sears Kenmore Quiet Comfort (evaporative type) humidifier works very well (the larger the better). Dehumidifiers are essential in tropical climates. Air conditioners can also be helpful – especially if they run fairly constantly. A DamppChaser unit that is properly installed helps maintain constant humidity in a piano year round (but cannot fully correct situations that are extreme).
Direct sunlight harms a piano’s finish (causing it to bleach and crack), while the heat that it causes destabilizes the piano interior. Therefore, if a piano must be placed in a spot where there is direct sunlight, a window shade and/or a piano cover is essential.
Keep fluids away from the piano. Juice, soda, even water spilled into a piano can do severe damage. Never touch the bass strings. Residue from hands and fingers causes corrosion, which can cause the bass strings to buzz and to lose clarity and power. Remove dust with a leaf blower or with the exhaust from a vacuum cleaner. If you live in a city, grime may accumulate over the years. Only a specialist should clean the interior of a piano.
The fallboard should always be open to allow free circulation of air around the keys. Keys should be cleaned only with a soft cloth, dampened very slightly with water or club soda (or Windex if the keys are really dirty). Never put fluid directly on the keys.
The case should be dusted with a lambs-wool duster (available in many hardware stores). To remove smudges, use a soft clean cheesecloth or an old clean cotton tee shirt (with the seams removed). Ten percent de-natured alcohol in water or Windex may be used if necessary. Do not rub across the grain and do not apply fluid directly to the piano.
Care of a Satin Ebony Lacquer Piano Finish
Do Not Do The Following:
- Do not use any form of polish or oil product on this finish.
- Do not wipe with paper or any cloth except that specified below.
- Do not dust by wiping in a direction other than the one in which the surface was originally rubbed. Look at the surface striations on each part of the piano to see the proper direction.
- Do not press down firmly on the finish when dusting. The finish is soft.
The Proper Method for Dusting and Maintaining the Finish
- Use a folded cheesecloth, dampened lightly with distilled water (preferably).
- Place the music desk flat and close the lid entirely, including the ‘fly´ or small lid.
- Gently move the cloth lengthwise down the lid and follow each dampened cloth stroke with an un-dampened piece of cheesecloth to remove any water on the surface which might leave marks.
- The exterior rim should be dusted lengthwise as should all other parts.
- Periodically, open the piano lid and gently dust the harp or plate. Ideally, the interior can be “blown out” once a year to clean dust from around the tuning pins. A feather duster also works, but not as well as a strong blower.
- Ask your tuner to dust the soundboard at least once per year. This requires a special tool which he should bring. This will keep your piano’s interior looking new for many years.
- The only product we recommend is one made by a company named clory. It is called Satin Sheen, and it is made specifically for satin lacquer finishes. Even here, we prefer to dilute it with distilled water. It is available over the Internet.
