The Community Pharmacy Foundation ("CPF") is a national non-profit organization that provides grants and funding for special projects and studies directly associated with community pharmacy practice and the advancement of patient care services by pharmacists.
The Community Pharmacy Foundation is not a membership association although it works closely with the national pharmacy associations most directly affiliated with community pharmacy practice – the American Pharmacists Association (APhA), the National Association of Chain Drug Stores (NACDS), and the National Community Pharmacists Association (NCPA). The Community Pharmacy Foundation also works closely with the American Association of Colleges of Pharmacy (AACP) and particularly their respective community pharmacy residency programs. Furthermore many of the grants awarded by CPF are to faculty of colleges of pharmacy working in direct relationship with community pharmacies in their respective region or state. Accordingly CPF considers itself "associated" with these four national pharmacy associations.
