The Mockingbird Foundation offers grants to schools and nonprofit organizations in the United States that focus on music education for children, an area of importance to the Phish fan community. The Foundation is particularly interested in projects that encourage and foster creative expression in all musical forms, and encourages applications associated with diverse or unusual musical styles, genres, and philosophies.
Music education may include the provision of instruments, texts, and office materials, as well as the support of learning space, performance space, and instruction. The Foundation generally targets programs for children up to 18 years of age, but will consider programs that benefit college students, teachers, or adult students.
Eligibility: Schools and nonprofit organizations in the United States. The Foundation gives priority to programs that benefit disenfranchised groups, including those with low skill levels, income, or education; those with disabilities or terminal illnesses; and those in foster homes, hospitals, prisons, or other remote or isolated situations.
Award: Awards vary.
Deadline: The deadline for initial inquiries is August 1, 2020; proposals will be due November 1, 2020.
