1953 Society - New Practitioner & Student



Invest in advancing pharmacy innovation! 

What is the 1953 Society?

Taking its name from the year the APhA Foundation was chartered, the 1953 Society is a group of pharmacists, new practitioners, and student pharmacists who show their leadership and commitment to the future of pharmacy through philanthropy.

By donating $19.53 annually, new practitioners and student pharmacists can join other 1953 Society contributors to help drive research and innovation at the APhA Foundation. As one of our elite group of supports, your investment represents your commitment to building new leaders and pharmacy innovators.


Why should I support the APhA Foundation?

Since 1953, the APhA Foundation has remained committed to generating evidence that pharmacists impact patient health through research and innovation. In addition to full-scale research, the APhA Foundation brings together top leaders in pharmacy for discussions about future practice innovation. The APhA Foundation is non-profit organization that relies on donations to carry out its mission. APhA membership dues do not support the Foundation, but donations do.
