The CMA Foundation is intentional about building and fostering relationships with grantees. Our partnership model is relational, not transactional. We look for key partners that best align with our areas of focus to result in deeper connection and impact.

The CMA Foundation for the last decade has been working to make sure all students have access to music, and aims to partner with the local community, teachers, school board, and government leaders to keep our students thriving with music.

Using data to inform our grant making – we are thoughtful in choosing the organizations and systems we partner with to make sure every child has the opportunity to participate in a high-quality music education.

Our portfolio of giving includes three focus areas within music: Youth Development, Teacher Support, and Research. High impact giving makes up more than 70% of our annual Foundation budget.
