The Mockingbird Foundation has announced fifteen new grants totaling $131,870 in support of music education for children. The grants come from Mockingbird’s 23rd round of competitive grant-making, are among the largest single rounds of grants in the Foundation’s history, and include the Foundation’s 400th grant.
The grants were enhanced by funds from Phish’s own WaterWheel Foundation, which allowed the board to double two of the grant requests, as well as the Kristy Anastasio Manning Memorial Fund, which provided 50% of one of the grants. Mockingbird also increased four grants beyond the requested amounts, having been particularly impressed by those applicants.

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 just about $1,500,000 to support music education for children – hundreds of grants in all 50 states, with more on the way.
