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 and equipment needs for these programs. The CMA Foundation values community support. All applicants interested in receiving funding should have a great community network before applying.

The 2015 CMA Foundation grant window for 2016 funding is now closed. The CMA Foundation reviews grants once a year.  All applicants will be notified in November on their funding request.
