August 2018 Giving Report: Fundraising for Zendo Project Psychedelic Peer Support Services

MAPS is currently seeking $9 million for European Medicines Agency (EMA) trials to supplement the data gathered for the FDA, with $397,735 already raised, $500,000 more pledged, and roughly $8.1 million still to go. We have now completed our key negotiations with EMA and we will have a clearer estimate of costs for Phase 3 EMA trials in early 2019, after completion of our negotiations with Phase 3 sites and with the regulatory agencies for each country in which we will have a Phase 3 site.

In August 2018, MAPS raised nearly $613,000 in new donations and pledges from 745 supporters.

On July 16, we began fundraising for the Zendo Project, a harm reduction program of MAPS, which provides peer support services at festivals and events around the world. The campaign recently concluded and we’ve raised over $126,000, an unprecedented success.

We extend a special thanks to those who so generously supported MAPS last month:

MAPS relies on the generosity of individual donors to achieve our mission. Psychedelic science is again being conducted under federal guidelines, but no funding for psychedelic psychotherapy research is yet available from governments or major non-family foundations.

Help us reach our goal to make MDMA a medicine by 2021 by establishing a monthly gift of $10 or more.
