Our mission is to promote a healthy and vibrant classical music community, primarily in Southern California, and to make grants to artistically excellent organizations for the performance and presentation of classical music, as well as for music education and the training of musicians.
Please note that we discourage grant seekers from submitting unsolicited requests to the Foundation. The foundation has a process through which we invite returning and a very limited number of new applications.
Prior to submission of any application, it is a requirement to email the Administrator at to determine the suitability of the intended request. This is particularly true for organizations which have not previously recieved a grant from the Colburn Foundation.
Grants to individuals, non-classical music.
