We are often asked how IAPMD gets the money needed to provide program services like peer support and education. It costs about $180,000 UDS per year to do the work we do. As a nonprofit, these funds are raised through a variety of resources including monetary donations, foundation grants, program service fees, membership fees, merchandise sales, and in-kind contributions (i.e. donated technology and materials).

IAPMD hold strict standards when it comes to accepting contributions from for-profit organizations including medical and pharmaceutical companies. We will not work with companies who make false and/or unsubstantiated claims about products or services, and we will not work with companies who discriminate based upon age, ethnicity, ancestry, gender, national origin, disability, race, size, religion, sexual, orientation, socioeconomic background, or any other status.
