Ways of Giving to the IACP Foundation

The IACP Foundation’s Fund-the-Future program raises monies to bring pharmacy students to the one of the most important events in pharmacy compounding – Compounders on Capitol Hill. To support the Foundation with a gift to Fund the Future, click here.

Every year, the IACP Foundation hosts a fantastic party, the Rx Mixer. The Mixer, held in conjunction with IACP’s Annual Meeting– Compounders on Capitol Hill, raises money to fund the Foundation, grow the endowment and help fulfill its mission. Rx Mixer attendees are treated to a fabulous evening complete with dinner, dancing, live and silent auctions. To support the Foundation with a gift to the Rx Mixer, click here.

Your role as a donor ensures that the IACP Foundation continues to provide much-needed funds to further our mission to support the quality, integrity and advancement of compounding pharmacy and its practitioners for the benefit of patients. Since 2005, the IACP Foundation has awarded approximately $156,000 for studies researching compounded preparation potency and stability and outcomes of treatment with compounded medications.

In 2012 generous contributions to the educational mission of IACP Foundation allowed us to fund the following research studies:
