Our programs don’t go without you. Your financial support of our mission is critical to its success and your donation is tax exempt to the fullest extent of the law. Band Together Pittsburgh’s mission is a true labor of love. We love music. We love working with our partners and we love to be a part of the real success that music has in the lives of those on the autism spectrum and their families. It’s a labor of love, however, it has its costs. There are insurances and of course we’ve got to fuel up. Not to put too much of a fine point on it, your donations make a world of difference. Your support, kind words and funding help us to continue to do what we do. We are gratified, but we still have to ask. Band Together Pittsburgh is a 501(c)3 public charity and your donations can be deducted to the fullest extent of the law. We are more than happy to supply a letter for your taxes if you need one.
The Mockingbird Foundation has announced unsolicited grants totaling $12,000 to support music education programs in cities where the band Phish will perform this summer. They were selected by members of the Phish.net forum community, led by board member Johnny Demeter, recently identified as Director of Outreach.
The eight $1,500 “miracle grants” – supporting two music programs in each of four cities – are part of a long-standing Mockingbird effort to help bring music from the Phish community to the local community, and are one of many ways fans contribute to the areas in which the band performs. Band Together Pittsburgh is proud and humbled to be one of the eight recipients of this grant.
