Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
What are the Global Psychedelic Dinners?
The Global Psychedelic Dinners are a chance for you to connect with your community, host an open conversation about psychedelics, and raise funds to help to make MDMA-assisted psychotherapy a legal treatment. You'll be helping reduce stigma and enhance public understanding of the risks and beneficial uses of psychedelics for science, healing, spirituality, creativity, and personal growth, while funding vital research for posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and other conditions.
How will the donations I collect help?
All contributions to the Global Psychedelic Dinners will help fund the purchase of one kilogram of MDMA manufactured under current Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) to be used in upcoming Phase 3 clinical trials of MDMA-assisted psychotherapy for PTSD. We're asking you—the worldwide community of people wanting to make psychedelic therapy a legal treatment—to donate and engage your network to help raise $100,000 towards the MDMA supply for Phase 3 trials, out of the total cost of $400,000.
How can I donate?
You can contribute online, in person at your Global Psychedelic Dinner, or send a check directly to: MAPS, 1115 Mission Street, Santa Cruz, CA 95060.
How do I host a dinner?
It's easy! First, register to receive your Host Pack, with everything you need to host your dinner. Then, customize your personal fundraising page and invite your friends, family, and colleagues to donate. Then, host your dinner and send in your offline donations.
Your Global Psychedelic Dinner can be anything you want it to be, from a handful of close friends in your home or a picnic on the beach to a larger gathering in a private or public venue. You can prepare a delicious meal, make it a potluck, order delivery, meet for a picnic, or reserve space at a restaurant—it's your choice. Any way you serve it, you're helping develop psychedelics into safe and legal treatments.
When should I host my Global Psychedelic Dinner?
Your Global Psychedelic Dinner can take place any time you like!
When will I receive my Host Pack?
You will receive your host pack soon after you register. You'll receive an e-mail confirmation that your Host Pack is on the way.

Is there a specific amount of funds I should raise?
Aim high, but be realistic. You don't have to reach your goal, but setting an ambitious yet reachable goal will inspire more gifts from your friends, family, and larger network. MAPS is trying to raise $400,000 for the purchase of pharmaceutical grade MDMA for Phase 3 studies. It all adds up!
