Disaster Assistance

Our hearts and thoughts go out to each and every person affected by recent disasters. 
There are many organizations, both national and local, which are providing food, water, shelter, and clothing for the survivors. We encourage you to support these efforts.
However, some of our members in the affected areas may need assistance beyond the basic necessities — this is where the Piano Technicians Guild Foundation comes in. If you, or another PTG member you know, has been affected by Hurricane Harvey, please contact the PTG Home Office at 913-432-9975 or contact@ptgf.org.
