Instrument Sponsorship

Instrument Sponsorship

Doublestop Foundation welcomes and accepts all Instrument Sponsors who are willing to support our talented Ambassadors with fine stringed instruments and bows. The Foundation designates two categories of Instrument Sponsor, Lenders and Donors. Both categories of sponsorship receive recognition on the website and throughout all programs and promotional materials.

Lenders are owners of fine instruments who loan their equipment to Doublestop Foundation for a defined length of time. Lenders and the Foundation are contractually bound to the ‘Instrument Sponsor Agreement,’ which explains that Doublestop Foundation will provide insurance coverage, regular maintenance check-ups, and repairs as needed for the duration of the loan period. The agreement also gives Doublestop Foundation permission from the Lender to use the equipment for the purpose of loaning it to deserving musicians.

Donors are the Foundation’s “priceless” Instrument Sponsor. All Donors that make a fine instrument contribution will receive a special acknowledgement from Michelle Kim, President and Artistic Director, as well as IRS Form 8283 for non-cash gifts.

As an Instrument Sponsor, you directly enable the most deserving string players to realize their fullest potential. Please contact Matthew Way, executive director, at if you would like to become an Instrument Sponsor today!
