Commonly asked questions


I would like to donate to Psyche. Are there any benefits?

Our Aeon Media donations programme offers two options – one-time donations or recurring donations. Rather than offering dedicated benefits to donors, we decided it was kinder to offer full functionality to all readers of Aeon or Psyche who have a user account. These include the ability to comment on articles and save articles for later. Log in to your account here. If you are unable to use these functions when signed in, please contact us via the interactive guide above so we can complete the process.

What does it mean to be a Patron?

Patrons are individuals who generously support Aeon Media Group with donations above $500 (US).

We also welcome employer-matched donations and grants through donor-advised funds and have many donors who choose to give this way.

We look forward to hearing from you.If you would like to ask about these options, please contact

Are donations tax deductible?

Gifts made by US and Australian taxpayers are tax deductible. US taxpayers may claim a tax deduction by giving to Aeon America Inc (EIN 81-3741044), a non-profit organisation exempt from federal income tax in the US under Internal Revenue Service Code Section 501(c)(3), which is eligible to receive tax-deductible donations.

Australian taxpayers may claim a tax deduction by giving to the Aeon Media Group Ltd (ABN 80 612 076 614) – Gift Fund which is listed on the Australian Government’s Register of Cultural Organisations, and endorsed as a deductible gift recipient, under Subdivision 30-BA of the Income Tax Assessment Act 1997.
