About Your Donation
MAP International (EIN: 36-2586390), one of America's top charities, is a tax-exempt organization under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.
Your gift to MAP is fully tax-deductible as permitted by the law. No goods or services were received in exchange for this contribution. If a project is oversubscribed, we will reassign gifts to a similar disaster or a need that most closely matches your designated event.
The situation is unimaginable to most of us.
When someone in our family is ill, we call our doctor and pick up a prescription in a few hours.
But in 104 countries where there is no drug store on every corner and very few pharmacies, the doctors and their patients there rely on MAP International for life-saving medicines.
That’s why we need your help today.
A gift to MAP is a gift of health to those who live in poverty and can’t afford medicine and medical supplies.
“When my patients need pediatric amoxicillin, most can’t afford to pay for it. It’s heartbreaking."
