Platinum Seal of Transparency

APhA Foundation Awarded Platinum Seal of Transparency


The APhA Foundation has achieved the Platinum Seal of Transparency from Candid (formerly Guidestar), the world’s largest source of information on non-profit organizations.

The Platinum Seal is the highest possible rating that puts APhA Foundation in the top 0.1% of charities nationally in terms of transparency, demonstrating our trustworthiness to the public. Nonprofit organizations achieve Platinum status by providing extensive operational detail for their respective Candid profiles. The Candid database contains a profile for every tax-exempt nonprofit registered with the Internal Revenue Service.

Friends of the APhA Foundation can easily find in-depth program and financial information about the organization in our annual reports to help them make informed decisions when considering a gift that supports our mission to improve people’s health.

With this information in hand, donors to the APhA Foundation can be confident that their donations will help provide resources to pharmacists with innovative ideas for expanding or improving patient care within pharmacy practice, to support students in their pharmacy school studies, and to recognize pharmacists for their civic leadership in their communities and their contributions to the medication use process.

We are incredibly proud to receive the Platinum Seal and are committed to continuing to be transparent and accountable to our contributors, volunteers, and program recipients.
