Pharmacy Foundation Mission


Mission of the Pharmacy Foundation

The foundation's purposes are to promote and further the education of future pharmacy professionals in the state of Missouri and to help the University of Missouri-Kansas City School of Pharmacy achieve its mission by garnering and extending support for its students, faculty and staff.


The University of Missouri-Kansas City Pharmacy Foundation was founded in 1951 by a concerned group of men who felt that the School of Pharmacy needed a broad base of support to develop into a state-of-the-art educational institution. With the help of J. Leo McMahon, Mathew "Bill" Wilson and others, the foundation and the Century Club developed a financial foundation for the school. The foundation continues to support the school through scholarships, special events and annual contributions.
