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. Your 1953 Society donation is an investment in the pursuit of new concepts in pharmacy practice. You sustain our efforts to demonstrate and quantify how pharmacists, as key a member of the healthcare team, can improve patient outcomes. You make possible Incentive Grants offer pharmacists, students, and community pharmacy residents seed money to implement or support an existing innovative patient care service within their pharmacy practice. You fund scholarships for those who demonstrate an early commitment to the profession, an aptitude for leadership and service, and a record of academic excellence.
