Phish Fans Fund Yeadon Music

The all-volunteer, fan-run Mockingbird Foundation is once again celebrating Phish tour by making unsolicited Tour Grants supporting a music program near each of the venues at which the band will perform. This series of Tour Grants covers all of the locations Phish will play during the band's 2019 Fall Tour.

In honor of Phish's upcoming show at The Met, December 3rd, the Mockingbird Foundation is sending a check for $1500 to support music education through the Bell Avenue Elementary School Band in Yeadon, PA. Bell Avenue is a K-6 urban elementary school just outside of Philadelphia and part of the William Penn School District, a Title 1 school district providing services for students in a low income area where students receive 100% free and reduced lunch and breakfast. Bell Avenue Elementary School's band program has been a particular challenge, with virtually no arts funding. We want to help change that.

This is Mockingbird's 17th grant in Pennsylvania, and 419th grant overall. The Foundation has now5 disbursed $165,500 in Tour Grants, 11% of its more than $1.4M in grants covering all 50 states. Watch for news posts here at Phish.net, or the evolving press release at the Foundation's website, for news on other "miracle" tour grants this fall. And please consider making a contribution, to help us give back to the communities we've touched.
