There are only 7 posters left, each available for $10. $7 of each poster sold will go direct to Mockingbird Foundation (the other $3 goes to shipping costs). PhanArt will match each poster sold.

PhanArt, donations made to Mockingbird Foundation, and some disclosure

In the interest of keeping fans up to date on what’s brewing with PhanArt, we have dedicated this blog post to explaining how the donations to The Mockingbird Foundation take place, who donates what, and answer any questions you may have via the comments section below.

PhanArt raised $1314.24 over the course of 2009, starting at the book launch party on 2/7/09, and ending 12/30/09 at Mock Show Miami. That’s a ton of money, but where did it all come from? We have found a way to provide as much clarity as to where this money comes from, en route to its final destination, The Mockingbird Foundation.

Halley and PhanArt Pete doing some intense research c. 2006

First things first, PhanArt does not accept monetary donations of any nature. We have never taken any cash in hand, aside from at Mock Shows and PhanArt held events, and that money is sent off to The Mockingbird Foundation immediately. PhanArt is not a 501 (c)(3), nor do we make an effort to become one.  Instead, we direct fans to donate directly to The Mockingbird Foundation via paypal or mbird.org The only donations PhanArt collects are those made by artists and fans and blog contributors  in the form of shirts, posters, stickers, etc…, as well as from profits from the sale of PhanArt: The Art of the Fans of Phish as each printing of books sells out.

Every two months , we will update what we have collected, and what we have donated from the sale of these items through auctions on ebay. We do not keep what is donated. Stickers and other items that were given to us during the collection period for the making of PhanArt: The Art of the Fans of Phish were given away with sales of the book. We will continue this practice.

Good advice^^^

How we came up with the list. Well, very simply, we kept track of all donations made to Mockingbird through various methods – direct donations via PhanArtists, ebay auctions, paypal receipts from blog artists, and any form of proof that money went from artist/fan to Mockingbird. Again, no money is donated to PhanArt, or given to us at any point, aside from at poster shows. That amount is relayed to members of The Mockingbird Foundation, and they receive a check in the mail from PhanArt shortly thereafter. Case in point, we raised $40 at Mock Show on 12/30/09 from sales of donated items alone. We mentioned this to George and Elayne who had the Mockingbird booth next to us at Mock Show. They knew to expect it being sent, and we furthermore notified Ellis Godard, executive director of The Mockingbird Foundation, as has been done since earlier this year.

The PhanArt Blog shows the collective impact of Phish fans through the art created in the Phish community. We at PhanArt look forward to 2010 and continuing a great Phish tradition!

Donations from the Artists featured on the PhanArt Blog to The Mockingbird Foundation

The purpose of the PhanArt Blog is not only to showcase the newest lot art and to provide a forum for phans and artists alike to sell their wares free of charge, it is also a venue to raise money for The Mockingbird Foundation, which raises funds for music education for children nationwide.

The first few months of the PhanArt Blog have been a great success, and we are happy to share with you the donations artists that have taken part in the site have made to The Mockingbird Foundation and/or PhanArt for future fundraising for The Mockingbird Foundation.

Since this is the first time we are sharing with the Phish public the amount each artist has donated as a result of taking part in the blog, and in the holiday spirit, we at PhanArt have offered to MATCH all monetary donations made by the artists.

The gracious donations from the blog artists, in no specific order….

Christine Lafferty – $10

Drew Suto – Copies of Surrender to the Flow for the Holiday Bundle

Vinny Naro – Five posters plus $5 of every poster sold via PhanArt blog for his NYE print!

That’s a grand total of $91 from artists, plus 11 shirts, 17 prints, a bunch of stickers, and much more! Since this is the holiday season and the first time PhanArt has done a Holiday Bundle, we at PhanArt are going to MATCH the $91 donated by the artists, for a total of $182! Add to the that our Holiday Bundle of phanart which went for $72, and thats $254 raised for The Mockingbird Foundation since November 1st!

Extreme gratitude to the artists and participants of the blog the past couple months. We have had a tremendous response, with more than 30,000 hits on the site since we started tracking in late November. Raising money for The Mockingbird Foundation has been amazing this year, and we still have Mock Show in Miami to go to, and the second printing of PhanArt to finish selling before we add more to the blog!

Thank you to one and all!  If you want to be part of the blog, contact Pete at phanart@gmail.com for more info.

Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, and Happy New Years to all!
