About The Foundation




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 spawned 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.  Tax-deductible gifts from generous donors help to make this work possible.


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


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


More information on the Foundation is available on a printable flyer, which members may use to garner additional support.
