February Giving Report: Donors Give Over $1.1 Million to Psychedelic Research and Education

In February 2022, over 1,100 donors gave $1,132,677 in donations and pledges. We are so grateful to these supporters who advance our shared vision of creating safe and legal opportunities for the beneficial uses of psychedelics.

Donors supported the following initiatives in February: general support ($1,130,674); MDMA-related projects ($1,430); harm reduction ($313); ibogaine research ($250); and health equity ($10).

We extend a special thank you to our community of 929 monthly donors who contributed a total of $29,221 in February. Your support is vital in making MAPS’ programs sustainable.

In February, two individuals included MAPS in their legacy planning in the form of a planned gift or bequest. These 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 mission-aligned organizations by providing fiscal sponsorship so that contributions for their social benefit projects may be tax-deductible as allowed by law. An additional $53,212 was donated to organizations that MAPS fiscally sponsors including: Alma Institute ($50,125); People of Color Psychedelic Collective ($1,510); Empyrean Temple ($1,000); The Psychedelic Renaissance ($230); ICEERS ($180); Pearl Psychedelic Institute ($50); North Star Project ($50); Ayahuasca Foundation ($40); MAPS Canada ($20); Bluelight ($5); and Kahpi ($2).

MAPS relies on the generosity of individual donors to achieve its mission. Psychedelic science is again being conducted under federal guidelines, but no funding for psychedelic therapy research is yet available from governments or major foundations.
