Fostering Pharmacy's Future!



The mission of the PPA Educational Foundation is to invest in the future of pharmacy by fostering research and education and advancing innovative pharmacy practice and patient care.

Strategic Plan 2014 - 2017

The Foundation's Board developed the Strategic Plan to guide its efforts to meet its Mission.


2017 Annual Report




The Pennsylvania Pharmacists Association Educational Foundation was established in 1997 as a 501(c)(3) charitable and public foundation.  In its early years, the foundation provided scholarships to pharmacy students through an application process.


In 2009, the Foundation underwent a process to revamp its focus and mission.  A new Board was elected, by-laws were updated, new initiatives for awareness were explored and implemented, and major funding sources were investigated.  A new direction of offering pharmacy practice enhancement based on mini-grants was begun.  The Foundation’s Board of Directors completed its first round of mini grants in 2010 and continues this program today. 


The Educational Foundation also helped spawn the idea for the Pennsylvania Pharmacists Care Network, a statewide collaborative network of pharmacists joined together to improve the practice of pharmacy across the state through the provision of advanced patient care activities. 


Today, the Foundation continues its work to advance patient care by fostering research, education, and the development of practice models that advance patient care through grants and other projects.  Tax-deductible gifts from generous donors help to make this work possible.


The Foundation supports a student pain management competition at the annual PPA meeting, the mini grants annually, as well as a poster competition for student pharmacists that garners participation from many statewide.


There are also a variety of scholarships for student pharmacists offered through the Foundation.
