The CMA Foundation is a non-profit organization committed to making a profound difference in the lives of students through projects furthering music education. The CMA Foundation offers grants to schools and nonprofit organizations whose mission and priority is granting children access to music education.

The CMA Foundation is predominately interested in projects restoring the arts, learning how to make music and inspiring creative musical expression (traditional and non-traditional.) This also includes funding instruments, equipment needs, and professional development for music educators. The CMA Foundation values community support. All applicants interested in receiving funding should have a great community network before applying.
