I found Beethoven Foundation online while looking for a used piano for my 9 year old daughter. She has been taking piano lessons since Kindergarten but practicing on a keyboard. Her current teacher said it was time to graduate to a real piano. I couldn’t afford a new one so I went the used piano route. To my surprise Beethoven Foundation offered pianos at no charge which was a real blessing. I was able to communicate with the donor and thanked them repeatedly for their donation. I had a very pleasant experience with my contact at the Beethoven Foundation and will definitely be keeping in touch with them. Beethoven Foundation was a Godsend for our family and we are extremely thankful. The piano was delivered today and we were so excited!! Check out the photo!

I am so pleased to share my experience with The Beethoven Foundation. My son recently expressed an interest in playing the piano. He was only able to play when he was with his grandparents, so I begain looking into getting one for our home. Someone recommended I check with The Beethoven Foundation. Within two days of submitting an application online, the foundation contacted me about a local piano donation. My son and I were able to meet the family who made the donation. We learned the toucing history of the how the woman recieved the piano as a gift when she was young. It was nice for them to meet my son and know a little about where the piano was going.

In addition to helping us find a piano so quickly, the Beethoven Foundation also generously contributed money to pay for a portion of the moving cost. It was a great experience overall and I am happy to say the piano is used daily!

We are so grateful to The Beethoven Foundation. They found Sophia a piano donation and granted her a merit scholarship to continue her piano lessons. We applied when our family was going through tremendous hardship. At the time, Sophia was in her fourth year of piano lessons and practicing on average two hours a day. When we moved and could not keep the piano, Sophia would practice at our church after school. Playing the piano is her passion/talent, it has become a very big part of who she is. Thank you Beethoven Foundation for believing in her and supporting her dreams.

Our experience with the foundation has been nothing but warm and kind. The application and evaluation process was very easy and the response time was short. We highly recommend them full heartedly and hope, when times are better for our family, we can return the generosity.
