Thanks to the support of our donors, the IONS Year-End Campaign exceeded the $250,000 goal with over $292,000 in gifts received. And, thanks to the generous donors who provided matching gift funds, all gifts were matched dollar for dollar. We simply could not do this important work without the support from you, our donors — thank you!
We are kicking the new year off with many exciting plans for 2021! We’ll continue to provide an exciting array of online program offerings, launch new leading-edge research projects, and further develop innovative programs such as the Noetic SignatureTM program and the Noetic Leadership program. On February 5th, we are holding a very special virtual event in celebration of the 50th Anniversary of the Apollo 14 Mission to the Moon and the life-changing epiphany experienced by IONS Founder, Captain Edgar Mitchell. We hope you will be able to join us on February 5th for the public event followed by a private social hour open to all IONS members and Circle donors.
There are many ways you can partner with IONS in 2021 and help transform our world!
Invest in Advancing Consciousness Research and Noetic Practices
A gift to IONS helps us advance our leading-edge scientific research and programs and allows greater expansion of our transformational work around the world. And, with the new CARES Act extension plus a few added benefits for 2021, donors have the opportunity to deduct $300 for individual charitable contributions and $600 per couple, without the need to itemize. In addition, the CARES Act lifted the cap on annual contributions for those who do itemize, increasing it from 60% to 100% of AGI (adjusted gross income) for 2021. Any excess contributions available can be carried over to the next five years. To make a gift go to: noetic.org/give.
