Music Education Grants: 

Guided by the generosity of the Country Music community, the CMA Foundation focuses on improving and sustaining music education programs everywhere while supporting worthwhile causes important to the Country Music Association.

Inspiring a love for music in people around the world through the charitable giving of the Country Music community is our vision. Since its inception, the CMA Foundation has given more than $21 million to organizations enhancing the lives of students through the power of music. Music Education has proven to be an effective and invaluable tool by influencing student’s academic achievement, social development and increased participation in activities.

Without the support of the Country Music community these efforts would not be possible.


Service Grants:

The CMA Foundation awards up to $25,000 annually in service grants to non-public service organizations that will have a significant and lasting impact on a group as well as its community.  A request needs to demonstrate a visible, apparent and immediate need and be consistent with the Foundation’s mission, to support causes important to the Country Music Association. 


The music education grant application is now closed. The service grant application will be open October 1 - October 31, 2018. 

Ends on October 31, 2018
The application period is open October 1 and will close October 31. We look forward to your grant submissions this year!
