About Us

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

The NCPA Foundation advances independent community pharmacy through scholarships to pharmacy students, research/programs to improve the success of independent pharmacy and patient care, community health awareness programs, and aid to community pharmacy owners for their recovery in the event of disaster or other adverse circumstances.  

The foundation is completely autonomous and relies on external support from individuals and corporations to maintain its far-reaching programs—including those that help develop the future leaders and entrepreneurs of the community pharmacy profession.

Contributions are tax-deductible to the extent permitted under federal tax law.  Federal tax ID:  90-0633086.
