Helping Pharmacists Help People Annual Giving Campaign
Annual giving is essential to the VPhA Foundation’s ability to carry out its mission to promote public welfare through the development of pharmaceutical services and advance the profession of pharmacy. Each November, VPhA members will receive a letter requesting a donation to this campaign. Please consider this opportunity to show your support for pharmacy in Virginia. Of course, annual gifts can be made at any time of the year. Donors are recognized in the VPhA Journal each year.
The Virginia Pharmacy Legacy
The Foundation Legacy Endowment Group (LEG) has been established to provide a means to memorialize and extend your personal commitment to pharmacy. LEG is comprised of individuals who wish to provide an affordable gift of life insurance to the Foundation. Your commitment of life insurance will provide a substantial deferred gift with modest annual contributions for 12 years. The annual premium may be tax deductible as it is paid to VPhA Foundation, an IRS approved charitable organization. For more information, please read the brochure, “Establishing Your Legacy with the VPhA Foundation“.
Memorials are contributions made in memory of a friend or loved one. Memorials are acknowledged in the VPhA Journal and a notification card is sent to the family. Please include name and address of the appropriate person(s) when making your gift. The amount of the gift is not indicated in the card.
Gifts of Stock
The VPhA Foundation encourages gifts of publicly traded stock. One advantage of this type of gift is that there may be no capital gains tax payable for gifts of appreciated securities.
Capital Campaign 2010-2012
The VPhA Foundation’s priority focus for 2010-2012 was the new Capital Campaign. This campaign raised $300,000+ to burn the mortgage on our headquarters building and build the bridge to the future, a reserve fund for the pharmacists who follow us.
