Instrument Donations

The Center for Irish Music accepts donations of new or gently used traditional Irish instruments that are in good working order. If you would like to donate an instrument, please contact to confirm that we can accept it. Be ready to provide a description of the item, including make/model, condition, age, and estimated value.

Éigse CIM, a Gaela Event

Each year, we host a silent auction as part of our annual fundraising gala: Éigse CIM, a Gaela Event. We accept in-kind donations of jewelry, artwork, pottery, instruments, gift baskets, and gift certificates for local or online businesses. Items should be in new or gently-used condition, with no stains, tears, or broken pieces. We also love to feature unique experiences; in the past, these have included things like cooking lessons, brewery tours and tastings, and sailing trips.

Silent auction donations are typically accepted from December-February. For information specific to this year's event, visit our Éigse page.
