Get Involved

Why Give?

Music has the power to change lives! We believe every child deserves access to life-changing music education, which is why Soundscapes’ daily music program is free for all participants. You make our program possible with your generous support.

For individual gifts of at least $500 and corporate gifts of at least $616, we are pleased to offer Neighborhood Assistance Program state tax credits worth 65% of your donation. NAP tax credits are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Please call or email to confirm availability before making your gift.

Sponsor a Child

Thanks to our Sponsor a Child program, donors like you have the opportunity to cover the cost of a specific child’s Soundscapes experience. As a Sponsor a Child participant, you will receive a certificate with a photo and information about the child you are sponsoring, and other benefits such as updates on their progress throughout the year, depending on your giving level.

Instrument Donation

Four students playing brass instruments

Soundscapes is always pleased to accept instrument donations. We are in need of half size to full size string instruments (including basses!) and wind, brass and percussion instruments. Unfortunately, we cannot accept pianos at this time. If you are interested in donating an instrument, please email or call us at (757) 273-6178.

If you have other items you think might be useful to our program, administrative office, or at a special event, please email or call us at (757) 273-6178.

Volunteer with Soundscapes

We provide volunteer opportunities to suit your needs, whether you are looking for a regular commitment to work with the students during weekday afternoons, a one-time volunteer opportunity during an event, or something in between. Let us know your interests and availability, and we will be glad to find a way for you to get involved!
