In March 2021, we raised $1,403,917 in donations and pledges from over 1,250 supporters. Of this amount: $1,000,000 is for MAPS Israel; $351,205 is for general support; $50,183 is for psychedelic harm reduction and peer support; $2,269 is for MDMA-related projects; $250 is for ibogaine research; and $10 is for Health Equity.
We extend a special thank you to our monthly donors who contributed a total of $25,313 in March. Your support is vital in making our programs sustainable.
In addition to the funds raised in March, we gained support from 2 individuals in the form of a planned gift or bequest. 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.
We are honored to support a number of like-minded organizations by providing fiscal sponsorship so that contributions for their social benefit projects consistent with our mission may be tax-deductible as allowed by law.
