PPA Educational Foundation Contributions

Pharmacists…Advancing patient care



Contributions are the lifeblood of the Foundation and are desperately needed to continue our work, through our grants and other programs.  We ask that every Pennsylvania pharmacist consider making an annual contribution of whatever amount you feel comfortable. These donations will benefit the future of your profession. 

Contributions may be made online or made payable to PPA Educational Foundation and mailed to PPA Educational Foundation, 508 North Third Street, Harrisburg, PA  17101; or faxed to the Foundation at 717-236-1618.  The Foundation accepts Mastercard, Visa, or Discover credit cards.  The PPA Educational Foundation has been granted 501 (c) (3) status by the IRS.  Contributions may be deductible as charitable expenses for federal income tax purpose. Please consult your accountant or tax attorney.  The official registration and financial information of The PPA Educational Education Foundation may be obtained from the Pennsylvania Department of State by calling toll free, within Pennsylvania, 1 (800) 732-0999. Registration does not imply endorsement.

Contributions may be single, one-time contributions or annual contributions.  Members may also enroll in monthly or quarterly deductions from a credit card.  members may also make pledges for a longer term and receive regular invoices as reminders for the pledge.  Contributions may be in any amount - all are helpful.  All money received through contributions is used for the mission of the Foundation.  More information on the Foundation is available on a printable flyer which members may use to garner additional support.

We are happy to report that over $27,000 was raised in 2015!

Matching Gifts

Check with your company's (or your spouse's company's) Human Resources office to see if they offer a charitable gift matching program. (If they don't, you may want to ask your company to start one.)  If your employer does offer a matching gift program, your Human Resources Department should be able to provide you with a matching gift form to send to the PPA Educational Foundation along with your donation. Then complete this form and return it to us with your contribution and the matching gift form. We will complete our end of the form and return it to your company in application for a matching gift. The PPA Educational Foundation will provide the necessary documentation to apply for the matching gift.  Many companies also offer this program through an online service and we will gladly access a program in that manner.
