Financials

At MAP, we value your trust and support.

For 64 years, we have put stewardship at the forefront of our mission and valued transparency and integrity in our finances.

Since our founding we have been known as an organization that delivers quality medicines to those in need with remarkably low overhead.

For donors like you, this means we do the most good with each dollar you give.

In 2018, we helped 13.6 million people by providing millions of healing doses of medicines. We did this all with a staff of fewer than 50 people in our U.S offices and warehouse.

We were able to deliver so much medicine at low cost because pharmaceutical companies donate many of the products we send overseas.

These are new, unexpired medicines that are desperately needed by people in many parts of the world. We also purchase medicines when necessary to meet specific needs.

About Our Methodology

Since MAP International was founded more than sixty-four years ago, we have been known as an organization that delivers quality medicines to those in need with remarkably low overhead. In 2017, MAP impacted the lives of 14.3 million people by providing millions of healing doses of medicines as well as much-needed health supplies to 93 countries around the globe. We did this all with a staff of fewer than 50 people in the US and 110 people internationally.

 MAP is able to deliver so much medicine at low cost because pharmaceutical companies donate many of the products we send overseas. These are new, unexpired medicines that are desperately needed by people in many parts of the world. MAP also purchases medicines when necessary to meet specific needs.

MAP carefully procures these medicines and makes sure they meet the highest quality standards. In addition, we use standards set by ECFA (the Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability), ACCORD network, PQMD (Partnership for Quality Medical Donations), and other organizations, and we comply with all generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP).

MAP has used an outside accounting firm to audit its books and valuation practices for more than two decades and has consistently received clean audits and high praise for our financial accountability and our transparency.

We care deeply about those whose lives we are able to improve through our mission. And we also care deeply about our donors, who often give sacrificially to this mission. We do not take their trust for granted.

*Recently the California Attorney General’s office filed an administrative action against MAP International and other nonprofits concerning the way we, along with other similar charities, value the medicines donated to our organization in our audited financial statements.

We are pleased to report that the judge who heard MAP’s appeal of the issue has announced his ruling in MAP’s favor, finding that the Attorney General’s office failed to prove a violation of GAAP (Generally Accepted Accounting Principles). 

The judge’s decision is consistent with the opinions that MAP International previously received from its independent auditors, as well as with guidance from the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants. 

A copy of the transcript of the judge’s ruling is available upon request.  The judge is expected to issue a written decision on this issue and another issue sometime in 2019.

Please feel free to contact MAP for further information. We value our relationship with our donors and work hard to maintain transparency about our finances.

 

Since our beginning, we have been dedicated to wise stewardship, financial accountability, and transparency.

A founding member of the Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability (ECFA), MAP has consistently received the highest marks from a variety of organizations, including Forbes magazine, the Better Business Bureau, and CNBC.

Recently MAP was awarded the Platinum Seal of Transparency by GuideStar, the world’s largest source of nonprofit information.

MAP also undergoes an annual audit and posts it financial information on our website.

We care deeply about those whose lives we are able to improve through our mission. And we also care deeply about our donors, who often give sacrificially to this mission. We value your trust.

MAP International has been vitally important in providing us with medicines. We are literally working with life and death situations. Our clinic physicians are ecstatic upon receiving MAP products and the people are especially grateful. You’ve given us great hope.”
