Sustaining Patrons ensure the long-range viability of the Mind & Life Institute, and are greatly honored financial partners and members of our Mind and Life family. With a commitment to give $30,000 or more per year for a minimum of three years, Patrons affirm their dedication to the important work of the Institute, keep us on a stable footing, and enable us to plan both current and future scientific investigations with confidence. In appreciation of their deep commitment to the Mind & Life Institute, we extend special invitations to Sustaining Patrons to our Mind and Life public and private events. Please contact Jacqui DeFelice, Director of Operations and Advancement, at Jacqui@mindandlife.org or 413-387-0710 extension 102 for more information about Patron benefits and activities.
