Impact Summary from the Nonprofit Additional Information
A Charting Impact Report consists of an organization’s responses to the five questions. Helping validate this self-reported data are three reviews. Once an organization has used the online interface to complete its report, its responses will produce a document with a unique URL that will be shared on this website, on your GuideStar profile, on the reports of charities participating in BBB Wise Giving Alliance evaluations, and – in the future – with other websites and information sources about nonprofits. We encourage organizations to use this URL to share their report on their own website and through their own media channels. Participants will receive guidance about promoting their Charting Impact Report, along with other benefits, once they publish their report.

Erowid's information about psychoactive plants and drugs is read by 100,000 unique people every day (2.5 million each month). It is a resource used by physicians and toxicologists in the treatment of patients, by teachers and parents in educating youth, by authors and news organizations as a reference, and by psychoactive users looking for practical safety and usage information. It is an independent, non-judgmental resource which helps people make better decisions and policies about mind-altering drugs and technologies.
