We accept each and every piano donationfor use in our charitable programs, events, and retail operation. Whichever path your piano takes you can be sure your contribution supports children and the arts. Thank you Ben Folds (@murkanpianist) for your music and support: We will never forget you! Thank you also to Singer-Songwriter and Youtube sensation Jess Godwin (@godwin_anthology) for humorously introducing our #nonprofit #retail enterprise to the world...
Due to the costs we must incur with moving, inspecting, refurbishing, tuning, and maintaining your piano at our warehouses for an indefinite length of time, we will ask for an offset fee. The offset fee is calculated from the information you provide in the Keys 4/4 Kids Web Form for Piano Donations below. The five factors weighted most heavily in the offset fee calculation are Piano Manufacturer, Piano Type, Piano Condition, Location, and Exterior/Interior Stairs. This offset fee is not tax-deductible, however, the generous gift of your piano made with no goods or services promised or provided will be deductible as an in-kind donation. Thank you for your support!
Keys 4/4 Kids is a tax-exempt 501(c)(3) charitable organization. A generous gift of your piano made with no goods or services promised or provided will be deductible as an in-kind donation. An acknowledgement of your donation will be provided to you upon pickup.

Terms & Conditions
1.When you submit this web form, you can expect someone from Keys 4/4 Kids to contact you within 5-10 days in order to collect additional information and schedule your pick-up. The length of time it takes Keys 4/4 Kids to pick up your piano depends on the season, our pick-up/delivery schedule, and whether an expedite is necessary. Please let us know if you have any special needs!
2.OFF-SET FEE: Due to the costs Keys 4/4 Kids must incur with moving, inspecting, refurbishing, tuning, and maintaining your piano at our warehouses for an indefinite length of time, we ask for an offset fee. This offset fee is not tax-deductible, however, the generous gift of your piano made with no goods or services promised or provided will be deductible as an in-kind donation. Thank you for your support! We try to keep our (and your!) costs low by gathering as much information from you ahead of time. But, if you give us inaccurate information, that makes the experience more costly for both you and Keys. Accordingly, we need you to assure the information you provide us is factual and accurate:
I agree that the pick-up details I provided (number of exterior stairs, number of interior stairs, the pick-up mileage, whether there are any tight turns involved, whether there is a need for “walk around” service) are factual and accurate. I understand that if I provided untruthful or inaccurate information to Keys 4/4 Kids, I may be charged additional fees for pick-up at the organization’s current rates. I agree to pay these additional pick-up fees as they are incurred.
3.WAIVER & ASSUMPTION OF THE RISK: Keys 4/4 Kids is fully insured (don’t worry!), but the activity of moving and handling pianos involves certain risks, including, but not limited to, property damage, serious injury, and/or death. Sometimes our customers are so generous, they want to help the movers. Or, sometimes, our customers seemingly give our movers “permission” to take a tighter turn than the movers would ordinarily feel comfortable with, or to drive on their lawn to deliver a piano through a back sliding glass door. Suddenly, that “permission” becomes an unfortunate accident and the customer is upset.
Keys 4/4 Kids movers have the discretion to ask you to sign a Release of Liability for Piano Moving in order to proceed with a risky moving situation. If you refuse to sign the waiver, Keys 4/4 Kids’ movers may refuse to complete the pick-up from your desired location. Moreover, you understand and agree that piano moving includes activities that may be hazardous to your property and to yourself, including, but not limited to, your walls, lawn, and your person. Should you choose to participate in the pick-up process, you hereby expressly and specifically assume the risk of injury or harm for the moving activities and release Keys 4/4 Kids from all liability for injury, illness, death, or property damage resulting from the activities involving your interaction with the organization. You also agree to indemnify and hold harmless Keys 4/4 Kids for all claims arising out of your participation in Keys 4/4 Kids’ piano moving activities.
