The CMA Foundation, a national music education non-profit and the philanthropic arm of the Country Music Association (CMA) sponsored West Virginia’s first-ever Music Teacher Hill Day, Wednesday.
The event was led by the Foundation in partnership with West Virginia born and raised Americana artist Christian Lopez.
The foundation was established in 2011 as the philanthropic arm of the Country Music Association.
The CMA Foundation is committed to improving and sustaining high-quality music education programs across the United States, working to ensure every child has the opportunity to participate in music education. The group has invested more than $25 million across the national public school system, after school programs, summer camps and community outreach organizations.
Proceeds from CMA Fest, the four-day long music festival held annually in Nashville, are used to power the CMA Foundation’s donations.
