Project Updates:

The 2023 September Drive is focused on three projects: Shulgin Archiving, DrugsData, and Mobile-Usability Upgrades.

  • Shulgin Archiving: On the Shoulders of Giants
    We're on the cusp of finishing the scanning of physical documents in the Shulgin Collection. With this step, the protection of the data in the physical papers will be ensured. Over 240,000 documents have been scanned, not including photos. We have completed initial indexing ("metadata") of 50,000 documents. See Shulgin Archiving Project for more information.
  • DrugsData: Right To Know
    Erowid's DrugsData is the only anonymous mail-in laboratory drug checking program in the United States, operating continuously since 2001. In collaboration with research partners, DrugsData has analyzed more than 6,000 samples in the last three years. .

    This year's September drive's goal is to raise $40,000 to reduce DrugsData co-pays, promote drug checking, and instill the expectation that everyone has a right to know what's in the substances they consume. The human right to knowledge should include the right to analyze one's drugs, regardless of their legal status. See 2023 DrugsData Project Update for more information.
  • Mobile-Upgrades: Ubiquitous Accessibility
    Our 2023 annual September Drive also suports mobile upgrades. We are moving forward with mobile usability for Erowid and DrugsData. After years of waiting for a great solution, we've decided the best is the enemy of the good. So we've just released a pre-beta version of a more mobile-friendly display of the Experience Vaults.
Matching Campaign Rules:
  • Donations must be made between September 1 and September 30 in order to be matched.
  • $20-$2,000 donations are matched ($30 donation triggers matching donation of $30, etc.).
  • Qualifying donations will be matched until the matching funds are fully used $106200 or the end date of September 30 has been reached.
  • Contributors can select from the normal array of membership gifts for the amount they contribute, not including matching funds.
  • Contributors' portion of donations (minus the value of membership gifts requested) are tax-deductible.
