For the second year in a row, Phish has donated nearly $25,000 of their proceeds from LivePhish downloads to the Mockingbird Foundation, the all-volunteer, fan-run nonprofit which provides funding for music education for children (and, of course, has operated this website since 2001). We are extremely grateful for the band's generosity in continuing to donate a portion of proceeds from those downloads, and look forward to announcing the next round of grants at or around the time of this year's New Years Eve run of shows at Madison Square Garden.

More information about the Mockingbird Foundation is available at our parent organization website, www.mbird.org. Phish fans can donate to Mockingbird on that site or the "donate" button on the main page of Phish.net.
To assist in helping defray the online operations of Phish.net without taking away from our main charitable purpose of funding grants for music education programs for kids, you can (and should!) visit the Phish.net store from the link on the Phish.net homepage menu.
At the Phish.net store, you can get Phish.net T logo merch including shirts, hats, stickers, merit badges, coozies, pins, lighter covers and more and help us support the several hundred dollars a month for heavy duty web servers this popular fan website requires to serve tens of thousands of fans at the same time, while keeping it both free to users and refreshingly non-commercial, without the clutter of banner ads.
