Been into Phish since a buddy handed me Rift and some substances back in '95. Too young to tour during 1.0, spent 2.0 in the Marines, and only caught my first 3.0 show @Merriweather Post in June 2010 and have been a going ever since!
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.
