I first was introduced to Phish on March 30th, 1992 at Mississippi Nights in St Louis Mo. Like many, that was all I needed and I have been a phaithful phan since then. I'm a corporate guy by day and a Music/Film Producer, I'm at about 20 Shows total.
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.
