Who: Anyone who wants to help the legal availability and societal acceptance of guided therapeutic psychedelic experiences. We’d like to give grants to fast learning, determined, high integrity people. These grants are for individuals only, not organizations.
What: Get a $1,000 microgrant.
Why: It’s really hard to get non-profit funding without having an existing organizations. Once you have a developed organizations, it’s still hard to get donations, but it’s still easier compared to the earliest stages. So we’re trying this experiment to see if we can help seed more energetic, creative and determined people.
What sort of projects might get funded?
Series of YouTube videos with engaging and accurate summaries of the latest scientific research on psychedelics
Series of YouTube videos with information aimed at explaining how therapists can offer MDMA therapy legally as part of the compassionate use protocol
Research report that analyzes the most potentially impactful things to fund to advance the legal availability and societal acceptance of guided psychedelic experiences for therapeutic purposes
Series of talks given to sheriffs about psychedelic therapy
Series of video interviews with people who have started psychedelic societies to help people who want to start their own psychedelic societies learn from the advice of others
