since 1951
The Pharmacy Foundation has been supporting the students and programs of the School of Pharmacy since 1951.


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.


In 1951 a group of people, including J. Leo McMahon, Mathew “Bill” Wilson and others, were concerned that the School of Pharmacy needed financial support to develop into a state-of-the-art educational institution. With the Century Club, they started the Pharmacy Foundation.
