Welcome to the Pharmacy Foundation. We are an independent, 501c3 organization dedicated to promoting and furthering the education of our pharmacy students and the graduates of the UMKC School of Pharmacy. Established in 1951, the Foundation has grown tremendously over the past 69 years through the help of countless dedicated alumni, friends and supporters including former faculty members Mathew “Bill” Wilson and J. Leo McMahon.

Through the generosity of our donors and friends, the Foundation provides substantial support each year to pharmacy students, including more than $115,000 in academic scholarships in fall 2019. Additionally, the Foundation supports other student programs including student travel grants, selected special events and student professional development activities.

Contact the School of Pharmacy at 816-235-2409 with any questions or to make a gift to the Pharmacy Foundation. Thank you for your support.
