Become a partner with peer-to-peer fundraising

Peer-to-peer fundraising is a great way to raise money and awareness for a cause. This type of fundraising makes it possible for individual supporters to host personalized campaigns for collecting donations from friends, family and colleagues on our behalf.

Some examples of peer-to-peer fundraising that have been successful in raising support for the NCPA Foundation include: bake sales, penny fundraisers, charity concerts, GoFundMe campaigns, Facebook birthday fundraisers and more.

We can help you leverage your peer-to-peer fundraising efforts and with your permission celebrate your achievements on our social media pages! Reach out to the foundation to learn more.

Retirement assets and planned giving

  • Retirement assets: Giving part or all of your unused retirement assets, such as your IRA, 401(k), 403(b), pension or another tax-deferred plan, is an excellent way to make a gift to the NCPA Foundation. Please be sure when working with your custodian that they provide contact information for where to send a receipt acknowledgement for your gift.
  • Planned giving: Consider listing NCPA Foundation as your preferred charity in your will or as a beneficiary on a life insurance policy. You can provide for the future of independent community pharmacy while enjoying financial benefits for yourself. Planned gifts include bequests through a will or living trust, beneficiary designations of a retirement plan or life insurance policy, or a deferred gift that will provide an income for life, such as a charitable gift annuity or a charitable trust. For more information, please reach out to the foundation.
    • Proper wording in your estate plan is key to ensuring your wishes are carried out correctly. You can find sample bequest language here.

Giving pages

We can support your organization's fundraising campaigns with a dedicated giving page, giving form, and provide a QR code and co-branding to make raising funds for the NCPA Foundation easier. Branded giving pages are a win-win because they reflect your brand, making it recognizable to stakeholders and makes it easier to make a greater impact.

Matching gifts

Corporate matching is a powerful incentive for your employees to donate their own funds. It amplifies the impact of their contribution, and it also lets them know that you support their efforts to make a difference in the world. Many companies include donation matching as part of their package of employee reward or benefit programs.

If you have a matching gift program that could be leveraged for a greater impact, please contact us, especially if you utilize platforms such as Benevity, YourCause, or Cybergrants for employee giving.

Sponsorship Opportunities

Financial support from sponsors allows the foundation to offer more scholarships or awards, directly impacting the lives of deserving individuals. This strengthens our mission and allows us to recognize and nurture future leaders in community pharmacy.

Sponsorships also demonstrate our credibility and show your commitment to our cause, potentially attracting further support and partnerships.  In essence, sponsorship opportunities create a powerful synergy, allowing both organizations to achieve their goals while making a positive social impact.
