ABOUT GEAR LOAN
Accessible music expression is one of the most important things to Girls Rock NC! For this reason, we are excited to be able to loan gear/equipment throughout the year so y'all continue making music, learning, and experimenting.
Our organization works to build power with trans people, non-binary people, girls and women. Gear loan is for anyone with these gender identities.
RENT TO OWN
Some of our gear we are ready to let go of! We now offer a rent-to-own program. Regardless of whether or not your intent was to buy an instrument from us, with rent-to-own, all of your donations towards gear rentals can be credited towards gear purchases.
Talk to a team member for more info about how rent-to-own works!

Below we've included a graphic with more information on how figure out where you could fall on a sliding scale. Please thoughtfully consider your needs, access, and identities when selecting an amount. We want to offer gear (and future programming) to everyone who would like it, regardless of economic status, and your donation helps support that mission.
Instruments are loaned out for one season (three months) at a time with the option to renew.
SPRING: March 20th - June 20th
SUMMER: June 21st - September 21st
FALL: September 22nd - December 20th
WINTER: December 21st - March 19th
We want the instruments to be in the hands of community members as much as possible, but we may need to recall certain instruments when we start up some of our youth offerings such as Summer Camp and After School, as well as our adult fundraiser Rock Roulette.
These dates to keep in mind are:
WINTER AFTER SCHOOL: January - April (minimum amount of gear needed back)
SUMMER CAMP: July (bulk of gear needed back)
FALL AFTER SCHOOL: October - December (minimum amount of gear needed back)
ROCK ROULETTE: late-January - mid-March (bulk of gear needed back)
