The CMA FOUNDATION and CAPITOL NASHVILLE artist CHARLES KELLEY announced a $150K grant from the CMA FOUNDATION to the GIVE A NOTE FOUNDATION, which is dedicated to growing and strengthening music education opportunities through grants, scholarships, and research. Last night (10/27) KELLEY made the announcement at the annual conference of the NATIONAL ASSOCIATION FOR MUSIC EDUCATION (NAfME).
This grant symbolizes the CMA FOUNDATION’s shift of focus from purchasing and donating instruments to instead expanding efforts to support quality music education as well as providing instruments. "We couldn't think of a better platform to talk about the importance of supporting sustainable music education programs than sharing this expanded strategy with the teachers who are on the front line of this important issue every day," said CMA CEO SARAH TRAHERN.
