I enjoy Phish for a number of reasons. I saw my first show at The University of Massachusetts at Amherst on May 10, 1992. Since then, I have been attending shows, collecting recordings, writing about the band, and enjoying the experience.
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.
