June 2022 Giving Report: Donors Give Over $373,000 to Psychedelic Research and Education

In June 2022, over 1,000 donors gave $373,433 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 June: general support ($335,135); Health Equity ($36,777); research-related projects ($1,308); harm reduction ($213).

We extend a special thank you to our community of 815 monthly donors who contributed a total of $31,609 in June. Your support is vital in making our programs sustainable.

We are 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 $480,750 was donated to organizations that MAPS fiscally sponsors including: Empyrean Temple ($267,391); Indigenous Medicine Conservation Fund ($125,000); Alma Institute ($54,045); ICEERS ($30,125); Brooklyn Psychedelic Society ($3,000); North Star Project ($1,000); Pearl Psychedelic Institute ($129); Aniwa ($25); MAPS Canada ($20); People of Color Psychedelic Collective ($10); and Bluelight ($5).
