Since @Joonze (Kevin) began the Forum's most recent fundraising drive in mid-November (boosted by the "Icculus Challenge" in December), the Mockingbird Foundation has received over thirty thousand dollars in donations from individuals! This is a record for the Foundation, in that we have never previously received so much in individual donations within such a short amount of time.
The Board members and officers of the Foundation cannot thank each of you enough for caring about music education for children as much as we do, by donating so much and so generously these past few months, and for supporting our efforts to cycle our love of music back to others.
Every dollar really counts! If you're reading this and you didn't donate, please consider donating to the Foundation in any amount. Your donation is entirely tax deductible! We are a 501(c)(3) that is run entirely by volunteers and that has no paid staff. So, please consider joining the more than one hundred fans who have donated to the Foundation in recent months, by donating to the Foundation whose volunteers operate this site for the benefit of both you and music education!

Phish.net is a non-commercial project run by Phish fans and for Phish fans under the auspices of the all-volunteer, non-profit Mockingbird Foundation.
This project serves to compile, preserve, and protect encyclopedic information about Phish and their music.
The Mockingbird Foundation is a non-profit organization founded by Phish fans in 1996 to generate charitable proceeds from the Phish community.
And since we're entirely volunteer – with no office, salaries, or paid staff – administrative costs are less than 2% of revenues! So far, we've distributed over $1,000,000 to support music education for children – hundreds of grants in all 50 states, with more on the way.
