About this funder:
NOTE: 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 to determine the suitability of the intended request. This is particularly true for organizations which have not previously received a grant from the Colburn Foundation.
Colburn Foundation Grant
The Colburn Foundation was established as an independent foundation in 1999 and endowed by Richard D. Colburn, who was a businessman and philanthropist. Mr. Colburn passed away in 2004, but the foundation continues to be governed by a Board of Directors.
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.
Historically, we have made multi-year grants. This is something that varies over time, depending on the level of our outstanding commitments.
We typically provide general operating support, unless a grantee is involved in areas that we do not fund, in which case we restrict our funding to the areas that we are willing to support within that organization. For educational institutions, we often provide scholarship support.
We consider grant applications on a rolling basis. Our board meets four times a year, and applications must be in advance of those meetings.
