Kansas City’s Swope Music Program gets money from the Mockingbird Foundation

The Mockingbird Foundation, an online charitable organization dedicated to music education for children, has named Kansas City’s Swope Corridor Renaissance/Upper Room Inc. the recipient of a $5,000 grant to be used for staffing and other programing costs in its Swope Music Program. The Mockingbird Foundation was established in 1997 by avid (and generous) fans of the jam band Phish, and it was officially recognized by the band in 2004 when they handed over all of the proceeds from their Livephish downloading service to the foundation.
