Celebrating 10 Years of the 1953 Society


Named for the year APhA Foundation was established, the 1953 Society is a special group of donor leaders who are passionate about transforming the health care system through pharmacists’ patient-care services.

Contributors to the 1953 Society identify with the long-term vision for success of APhA Foundation and commit to giving annually to support our healthcare mission.

By being a part of this dedicated group of supporters, you demonstrate your commitment to keeping patients healthier through the relationship built between pharmacists and patients.


Celebrating a decade of pharmacy philanthropy.

In 2023, we celebrate 10 years of philanthropy powered by the 1953 Society.

During this decade anniversary, a contribution to the 1953 Society Campaign preserves your name at the home of American pharmacy where you will receive special recognition as a Decade Donor.

As we look to expand our programs and improve patient care, funds from the 1953 Society sustain the essential elements of APhA Foundation’s mission and pave the way for the future of pharmacy practice.

You can help strengthen our profession through scholarships and grant awards, recognize achievements that motivate advancement in pharmacy, and showcase the value of pharmacists in enhancing patient care.
