Friday 07/14/2017 by Lemuria Forum Identifies $12k In Grantees

The Mockingbird Foundation has announced unsolicited grants totaling $12,000 to support music education programs in cities where Phish will perform this summer. They were selected by members of the forum community, led by board member Johnny Demeter, recently identified as Director of Outreach.

The eight $1,500 "miracle grants" - supporting two music programs in each of four cities - are part of a long-standing Mockingbird effort to help bring music from the Phish community to the local community, and are one of many ways fans contribute to the areas in which the band performs. The eight recipients include a wide array of settings, genres, and populations served - and are listed here in order of Phish's tour dates (provided parenthetically):

Ouish I want to thank you so much for granting a "miracle" to my suggested recipient, Band Together Pittsburgh. I appreciate MBF's ability to listen to the forum members and take our suggestions. I have no doubt the funds you provide them will be put to good use.

Thank you again. I love MBF, this site and this community!
