Grantmaking Program Areas: Music; Education; Children

Grantmaking Program Area Descriptions:

Music: Mockingbird is particularly interested in projects that encourage and foster creative expression in any musical form (including composition, instrumentation, vocalization, or improvisation), but also recognizes broader and more basic needs within conventional instruction. Mockingbird encourages applications associated with diverse or unusual musical styles, genres, forms, and philosophies.

Education: Education may include the provision of instruments, texts, and office materials, and the support of learning space, practice space, and instructors/instruction. Mockingbird is particularly interested in projects that foster self-esteem and free expression, but does not typically fund music therapy which is not education or music appreciation which does not include participation.

Children: Mockingbird is interested in targeting children eighteen years or younger, but will consider projects that benefit college students, teachers, instructors, or adult students. Mockingbird is particularly (thought not exclusively) interested in programs which benefit disenfrachised groups, including those with low skill levels, income, or education; with disabilities or terminal illnesses; and in foster homes, shelters, hospitals, prisons or other remote or isolated situations.

Type of Funding/Funding Restrictions: The Foundation offers competitive grants to schools and nonprofit organizations that effect improvements in areas of importance to the Phish fan community. It is particularly interested in organizations with low overhead, innovative approaches, and/or collaborative elements to their work. List of restrictions online.

Application Instructions: Initial inquiry form and instructions online.
