About Us

About Us

The NCPA Foundation is a nonprofit, philanthropic 501(c)(3) organization established in 1953.

Our mission is to improve community-based healthcare access by supporting efforts that promote the sustainability and growth of independent community pharmacists, the most accessible healthcare provider, through scholarships, grants, and ownership development.

Our vision for the future is to elevate the practice of independent community pharmacy. Our programs include those that help develop the future leaders and entrepreneurs of the community pharmacy profession.

While the foundation supports several programs and events that the National Community Pharmacists Association provides to the independent pharmacy community, our organization is completely autonomous and relies on external support from individuals, foundations, and corporations to maintain our far-reaching programs.

Contributions to the foundation are tax deductible as charitable donations to the extent permitted under federal tax law.

We are a 501(c)(3) charity that has earned Charity Navigator’s four-star rating and Candid’s Platinum Transparency seal.
