The Mockingbird Foundation, Inc.

The Mockingbird Foundation is a non-profit organization dedicated to improving access to music education for America's youth. Each year, the Foundation awards grants to dozens of music education programs, and funds those grants through a combination of fundraising, publishing, and the curation of, one of the earliest online fan communities. We need your support to serve these talented children. Every bid will help us raise funds to give the gift of music to them.

Mission: The Mockingbird Foundationbroadens access and educational opportunities for young people in music and the musical arts.

History: Mockingbird started as an all-volunteer non-profit in 1996 in order to raise money for music education for children. The original impetus was the compilation of the most accurate and literary book on Phish's music available. We've done that, in three highly successful editions, as well as taken on a wide range of projects, including an album, art, special events, and branded merchandise.

Purpose: The Mockingbird Foundation has no salaries, paid staff, office space, or endowment thus distributing all possible funds to charity. No director or volunteer benefits financially from the Foundation in any way, and all proceeds from Mockingbird projects are donated to tax-exempt organizations. The Foundations primary purpose is charitable, with more than $2.6M in grants to 662 grantees covering all 50 states.
