Over 900 people joined us in person at our 30th Anniversary Banquet and Celebration on April 17, 2016, at the Scottish Rite Center in Oakland, Calif. At this historic gathering, the global psychedelic science community came together to celebrate the progress we’ve made since our founding, and to help build the future of psychedelic medicine with a fundraiser to support our $400,000 purchase of one kilogram of pharmaceutical grade (GMP) MDMA for Phase 3 clinical trials and other research around the world.

In celebration of MAPS’ 30th Anniversary, supporters from around the world gathered with their communities by hosting or attending Global Psychedelic Dinners starting in March, 2016. The Global Psychedelic Dinners culminated into MAPS’ 30th Anniversary Banquet and Celebration at the Scottish Rite Center in Oakland, CA on April 17, 2016.

THANK YOU to all 82 gracious hosts and fundraisers, with special thanks to those who each raised over $1,000 at their dinners!

To date, over $45,000 has been raised from nearly 400 donors at the dinners, and in total we have raised $152,721 for the purchase of pharmaceutical grade MDMA for our Phase 3 trials of MDMA-assisted psychotherapy for PTSD and other MDMA research worldwide.
