Our mission is pretty simple. We give grants to individuals and groups that support the advancement of classical music.

We do not fund gigantic, multi-million or billion dollar groups. They are well cared for by other individuals and corporations. We like to fund smaller sized organizations that demonstrate to us in a personalized manner, how the money that we grant will help advance exposure to, and support of classical music.

Nor do we fund individuals who need to travel, pay rent or pay off student loans. You have to demonstrate that you are a very talented Classical musician in order to be a Rislov Foundation recipient.
