I got turned onto PHiSH in late 1992 somewhere on West Coast Grateful Dead tour. I have travelled to 7 countries to see them and the past 16 years of my life have been enriched participating in the "PHiSH Experience." Ski ya!
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 $750,000 to support music education for children – 210 grants in 43 states, with more on the way.
