Pharmacists Care Innovation Fund

The Pharmacists Care Innovation Fund supports the APhA Foundation’s vital healthcare mission: improving people’s health through pharmacists’ patient care services. It is the means by which the APhA Foundation is able to help transform healthcare in ways that improve health and reduce costs.

1953 Society

The 1953 Society is a special fellowship of donors who give to sustain the mission of the APhA Foundation. Donors to the 1953 Society are committed to the Foundation’s exploration of new patient care models, promotion of collaboration between pharmacists and other health care providers, and strengthening of the pharmacy profession through award and scholarship programs. Gifts to the 1953 Society are critical for funding ongoing operations and providing an underpinning for future growth.

APhA Fellows Wall of Honor

In 2010, the APhA Foundation recognized a void in the area of recognition at the APhA headquarters for the distinguished APhA Fellows. A campaign was started to develop an APhA Fellows Wall of Honor, a high profile exhibit at APhA National Headquarters that will list all the Fellows named over time. This exhibit will be paired alongside the state-presented Bowl of Hygeia Award recognition wall. All APhA Fellows will have their names listed with their “class."

Student 1953 Society

Join the Student 1953 Society, a group of pharmacy students who show their leadership and commitment to the future of pharmacy through philanthropy.

Student Scholarship Program

The APhA Foundation Student Scholarship Program recognizes students who choose to invest their time in their school’s APhA - ASP chapter to help shape the future of the profession while managing the demands of a full-time pharmacy curriculum.

Incentive Grants Program

The Incentive Grants for Practitioner Innovation in Pharmaceutical Care is the APhA Foundation’s longest running program. Grants totaling more than $500,000 have facilitated the development of over 500 pharmacy-based projects, improving the health outcomes of thousands of patients across the country.

East Terrace Pavers

Overlooking the Lincoln Memorial and Constitution Avenue on the National Mall, APhA’s East Terrace is a beautiful setting for reflection and recognition. This space features thousands of personalized pavers dedicated to individuals, groups, schools and colleges of pharmacy, mentors, professors, parent, and others. The APhA Foundation’s East Terrace Paver Campaign provides an opportunity to inscribe a paver with a personal message in exchange for a donation to the organization.

Ton Hoek Scholarship

The APhA Foundation has established an endowed scholarship with a goal of $25,000 to memorialize Mr. A.J.M (Ton) Hoek’s commitment to the global community of pharmacists. In his role as CEO and General Secretary of FIP, Hoek (1955-2012) built many global relationships in the pharmacist community. The Ton Hoek Endowed Scholarship will provide an annual stipend for a student or resident pharmacist from the United States to attend the International Pharmaceutical Federation (FIP) Congress.

Emswiller Memorial Fund

Carl F. Emswiller, Jr., was a leader in the profession of pharmacy and a pioneer in the areas of pharmaceutical care and collaborative practice. In 2010, Jewell Emswiller, Carl’s wife of 53 years, established a fund to honor her late husband's innumerable contributions to pharmacy.

Ron Williams Memorial Fund

Ronald L. Williams was a 30-year APhA staff member who held many positions within the organization. He also devoted his untiring attention to improve the health and careers of pharmacists who suffered from alcohol and chemical dependencies. In his memory, the APhA Foundation established the Ronald L. Williams Memorial Fund: Supporting Student Education on Alcoholism and Other Drug Dependencies.

Dennis and Patricia Worthen Student Fund

The Dennis and Patricia Worthen Student Fund was established to create the Dennis and Patricia Worthen APhA-ASP Presidential Award, which recognizes the tremendous leadership provided to student pharmacists by the President of the APhA Academy of Students of Pharmacy (ASP) during his or her term in office. Furthermore, the award recognizes the significant personal and professional commitment by the APhA-ASP President to advance the profession of pharmacy.
