January 4, 2016 at 8:10 AM (PT)
The CMA FOUNDATION has announced its annual donation for music education as well as a list of grant recipients for 2016. CMA will donate a record $2.68 million to 29 charitable groups, including METRO NASHVILLE PUBLIC SCHOOLS, MR. HOLLAND'S OPUS FOUNDATION, EDUCATION THROUGH MUSIC (ETM), and more. The grant brings CMA's total contributions since 2006 to more than $13.68 million.
"If it weren't for the artists, who all perform for free during CMA MUSIC FESTIVAL, and the thousands of fans who support the event each year, these donations would not be possible," said CMA CEO SARAH TRAHERN. "The CMA FOUNDATION donates to causes that are important to our community, but every dollar is given on behalf of the artists and fans that support MUSIC FEST each JUNE."
