Make a donation to the foundation
Your donations are essential to the development and activities of our foundation.
Donate an instrument to the foundation
You can donate an instrument that you own. We will bring it to life in the hands of our young talented musicians, year after year, by taking care to associate it with its history.
Lend a quality stringed instrument that you own
Your loan is entirely managed by Talents & Violon’celles: it is insured by an international insurance company renowned for its competence (Gallagher), valued and monitored regularly by an expert violin maker and entrusted to a young instrumentalist under the supervision of our artistic committee. Thanks to your loan, the instrument will be preserved and continue its life-story, whilst helping a young musician.
Have an instrument built or acquired for loan
Depending on your project, whether you are a company or an individual, you can choose to buy an existing instrument, or a contemporary instrument made for you by one of the best French violin makers. You own it and you lend it to Talents & Violon’celles to enrich its collection.
Talents & Violon’celles will manage your property rigorously: technical monitoring, insurance, artistic development.

What are the benefits for our sponsors and donors ?
- A living instrument is a perennial asset : A quality stringed instrument, because of its very long life (Raphaël Pidoux plays a cello signed Goffredo Cappa from 1680!) is a safe and lasting asset for its owner. By having an instrument built today, you are making a long-term investment which, over the years, contributes to the enrichment of the national heritage. Moreover, your instrument will continue to develop its potential if it is played, which is an essential condition of its life. The best conservators of stringed instruments are the musicians themselves !
- High-value communication : easy media coverage, social and societal messages, positive image of a dynamic sponsorship, etc.
- Involve young talented musicians in your events : talent, novelty and emotion guaranteed !
- The Talents & Violon’celles quality commitment : monitoring your project from an artistic, social and financial point of view.
