Foundation for support of the Ukrainian classical music community

Hi. Kyiv Contemporary Music Days speaking.


We are an educational and concert platform for contemporary academic (classical) music. Learn more about KCMD

For 6 years now we have been doing festivals, concerts, lectures, workshops in Ukraine, Portugal and Japan.

Today, due to the full-scale war that Russia has waged in our country, we have created a fund to support the Ukrainian classical music community.

Who does the fund help?

We provide help to Ukrainian classical musicians (composers, performers, musicologists). We have identified four groups of musicians in the order of priority as follows:

  • Elderly musicians and musicians with disabilities who are in Ukraine.

  • Musicians who are in Ukraine and not employed.

  • Musicians who are in Ukraine and employed.

  • Musicians who were forced to leave Ukraine due to the war.

What kind of help does the fund provide?

  • 1. Ensuring a basic standard of living and security: food, medicine, housing, etc.

We accept requests, as well as proactively learn about such needs from those who do not have access to the Internet, and provide assistance. We also purchase what is needed and find a way to deliver the purchases, or look for an opportunity among volunteers to get and deliver what is needed.

  • 2. Meeting the musicians’ needs to keep their practice going: ie. maintaining instruments in a proper condition, buying an inexpensive instrument in case of loss, and other urgent professional needs.

We accept inquiries about such needs, consider them, and look for opportunities to purchase what is needed and provide it to musicians.


  • 3. Providing one-time financial assistance for civil needs in the amount of UAH 3,400.

UAH 3,400 is the maximum amount that, according to Ukrainian law, a public organization has the right to send once a year to the bank account of an individual without the need to draw up contracts or any other legal red tape. This amount becomes a charitable donation to an individual; it can be used for any civilian needs.

Receiving help in the form of 3,400 hryvnias does not deprive musicians of the opportunity to turn to us for other kinds of help.

HOW ARE THE DECISIONS MADE?

It is important for us that decisions to help musicians are balanced. To this end, we have set up a funding board.

The board consists of the following musicians:


  • Oleg Bezborodko, composer, associate professor of the Tchaikovsky National Academy of Music of Ukraine

  • Yurii Chekan, musicologist, professor of the Tchaikovsky National Academy of Music of Ukraine

  • Francisco Morais Franco, guitarist, Portugal, co-founder of KCMD

  • Darko Horvatic, clarinetist, Croatia-Austria, co-founder of KCMD

  • Junia Makino, violinist, Japan, co-founder of KCMD

  • Nazarii Stets, double bass player, Ukraine

On reporting

Every two weeks*, we will publish reports:

1. We will send detailed reports to all those who made a donation and provided their e-mail address.

2. We will publish summary reports on Kyiv Contemporary Music Days (website, Facebook, Instagram) resources.
