The Iowa Pharmacy Association Foundation was established in 1960 as a charitable, non-profit foundation to offer loans and scholarships to student pharmacists. Over the last several decades, its mission has evolved to advance the future of the pharmacy profession in Iowa by building strong leaders, investing in innovative practice initiatives and securing high-quality education for tomorrow’s practitioners.
 
The result has been, and continues to be, a progressive and innovative culture in Iowa that continues to lead in how pharmacy is practiced across the country. Through the generosity of Iowa’s pharmacy professionals, the IPA Foundation has been instrumental in keeping Iowa a recognized leader in pharmacy practice through:
 
Student Pharmacist Support: Providing scholarships and facilitating professional development programs for student pharmacists in Iowa.
 
Leadership Development: Facilitating programs of leadership skill development for pharmacists and student pharmacists.
 
Practice Advancement: Supporting innovative ideas and research projects to advance pharmacy practice in Iowa and beyond.
 
Pharmacy Heritage: Preserving pharmacy’s rich heritage and promoting its culture to the profession and the general public.
 
Professional Recognition: Spotlighting excellence in leadership [link: Karbeling] and practice innovation [link: Poster award] through award programs.
 
Resource & Education Development: Obtaining resources from pharmacy-related organizations and professionals via annual fundraising programs, estate gifting, memorials, and endowed programs of scholarship, recognition, and professional development.
 
None of this is possible without the generosity of Iowa’s pharmacy professionals. Please consider donating to the IPA Foundation's general fund or pledge a sustained contribution through the IPA Foundation Institute.
