Grants ranging from $100 to $10,000 to USA nonprofit organizations and schools for programs that provide music education to children and youth. Organizations that take innovative approaches, operate with a low overhead, and demonstrate collaborative elements in their work are of particular interest.
The Mockingbird Foundation, Inc. (“Mockingbird”) offers competitive grants to schools and nonprofit organizations that effect improvements in areas of importance to the Phish fan community. Its programmatic focus is music education for children, defined as follows:
Music: The Foundation recognizes broad and basic needs within conventional instruction, though is particularly interested in projects that foster creative expression (whether in instrumentation, vocalization, composition, or improvisation) and encourage applications associated with diverse or unusual musical styles, genres, forms, and philosophies.
Education: Education may include the provision of instruments, texts, office materials, or equipment; the support of learning, practice, and performance spaces; and the provision of instructors or instruction. The Foundation appreciates the fostering of self-esteem and free expression but has never funded music therapy separate from education nor music appreciation which does not include participation.
Children: The Foundation primarily funds programs serving children eighteen years of age or younger, but will consider projects which benefit college students, teachers, instructors, or adult students. It is particularly (though not exclusively) interested in programs which benefit disenfranchised 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.
