Stringathon is a grass-roots project created by Charlie A’Court. Stringathon collects new and unused guitar strings and donates them to local schools.

How Stringathon works

During the school year, Stringathon collects strings from musicians, music stores and string manufacturers. Then, from
Music Monday (the national celebration of music education in school) to the end of the school year, Stringathon visits schools in need and outfits their entire band room with new strings.

You can help

Stringathon is always accepting new and unused guitar strings for acoustic, electric and even bass guitars. Even ukulele strings are happily accepted. If you don’t have guitar strings, you can also choose to make a financial donation to the program.
