October 2022 Giving Report: Donors Give Over $120,000 to Psychedelic Research and Education

In October 2022, over 1,000 donors gave $120,389 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 October: research-related project ($60,198); general support ($60,067); harm reduction ($103); and health equity ($21).

We extend a special thank you to our community of 863 monthly donors who contributed a total of $24,764 in October. 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 $458,226 was donated to organizations that MAPS fiscally sponsors including: Expanded Access Program ($400,000); People of Color Psychedelic Collective ($50,125); Brooklyn Psychedelic Society ($6,341); Alma Institute ($730); ICEERS ($500); North Star Project ($500); and Bluelight ($30).
