about the ASHP Foundation

Improving Patient Outcomes Through Safe and Effective Medication Use

 In 1968 three visionary leaders in health-system pharmacy, Joseph Beckerman, Joseph Oddis, and Milton Skolaut set out to create a nonprofit organization to encourage scientific research and professional study, and advance pharmacy practice. Since then, the Foundation, the philanthropic arm of ASHP, has established itself as a pioneer in helping pharmacists improve patient care.

We continue to help raise the bar for health-system pharmacy, supporting or offering an array of programs, including awards, clinical traineeships, leadership training, and research grants resources. By supporting the Foundation, you are investing in the future of the pharmacy profession and, ultimately, you will be improving patient care and safety.
