PAF launched in January of 2023 as a vision of community healing, with a mission to enable equitable and safe access to psychedelic-assisted therapies. As part of that mission, PAF provides financial sponsorships, direct services, and fosters community. PAF exists because of a shared desire to create a world with safe, supported psychedelic healing that is accessible for all. It is with this in mind that we are searching for someone with experience leading a non-profit to help bring PAF to new levels and expand our ability to fulfill our mission.

Until this point, PAF has been a volunteer-run organization. Our founder, Jeanie Lee, has big hopes and dreams for PAF. Since starting, this nonprofit has grown into a substantial project that needs the guidance of an experienced visionary to guide it through its next phase of growth.

The Executive Director is responsible for leading the organization, ensuring financial sustainability, fundraising, cultivating of new programs, building and maintaining relationships with stakeholders, and continuing to comply with legal and regulatory requirements.

Mission Statement

The Psychedelic Access Fund (PAF) is a non-profit organization determined to remove the financial barriers that prevent a person from experiencing psychedelic healing. We believe that psychedelic healing should be accessible to all, regardless of their ability to pay for it.

Description

With psychedelics showing to be a promising treatment for our nation’s mental health crisis, we now have an opportunity to deliver a new healing modality. Oregon has been the first state to legalize psilocybin-assisted therapy, which will cost between $1,500-$3,500 per session. The Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies (MAPS) anticipates that MDMA-assisted therapy programs will cost between $13,000 -$15,000 per patient, and we are yet to understand the cost for psilocybin-assisted therapy. With depression and anxiety being three times more likely in lower socioeconomic classes, our nation will be left in an imbalance, where only those who can afford psychedelic healing will have access. The Psychedelic Access Fund aims to solve that problem.

PAF will sponsor select individuals for healing opportunities in hopes of creating a healed, conscious, and connected world. We will also partner with psychedelic facilities and retreat centers to establish "Pay It Forward" funds and scholarship programs, so that no person is turned away from psychedelic healing due to their inability to pay.
