Supporting Membership

Supporting Membership for $65 annually
The Supporting membership level is the most popular membership level. It provides the extra financial support IANDS needs to accomplish its mission of encouraging research into NDEs, supporting experiencers as they attempt to integrate their NDE into their lives, and educating professions (healthcare, clergy, educators, etc.) and the general public about NDEs. We hope you can join at this membership level to help us create a future in which people of all walks of life, religions, and cultures will look at near-death experiences as a potential source of meaning and inspiration for a better world.
