January 2021 Giving Report: MAPS Raises Over $750,000 for Psychedelic Research and Education

In January 2021, MAPS raised $750,808 in donations and pledges from over 1,100 supporters. Of this amount: $747,805 is for general support; $2,370 is for MDMA-related projects; $383 for psychedelic harm reduction and peer support; and $250 is for ibogaine research.

We extend a special thank you to our monthly donors who contributed a total of $18,542 in January. Your support is vital in making MAPS’ programs sustainable.

In addition to the funds raised in January, MAPS gained support from 19 individuals in the form of a planned gift or bequest to MAPS. These planned gifts were made with the help of FreeWill, a free online tool that allows US-based individuals to plan a legacy gift for the non-profit of their choosing.

MAPS is honored to support a number of like-minded organizations by providing a fiscal sponsorship so that contributions for their social benefit projects may be tax-deductible as allowed by law. An additional $10,329 was raised by organizations that MAPS fiscally sponsors including: How We Heal ($10,000); Bluelight ($160); Somatic Center Portland ($100); The Psychedelic Renaissance ($22); ICEERS ($20); MAPS Canada ($20); Empyrean Temple ($5); and Kaphi ($2).

We extend a warm welcome to Enthea, the newest member of MAPS’ fiscal sponsorship family. Enthea is a non-profit, third party administrator (TPA) that provides health insurance benefit riders and single case agreement (SCA) services for psychedelic healthcare.
