Donated Instruments as Tax Deduction

Occasionally, our donors choose to receive a tax deduction for their instrument donation. Should you require a receipt for tax purposes, you are responsible for providing documentation of the instrument’s appraisal. Instrument donations may be 100% tax deductible at the value estimated by a qualified appraiser. If you do not have an appraiser, contact USPAP Appraisers at:
