Pharmacy Education Foundation (PEF)

 

The Pharmacy Education Foundation (PEF) is a separate, 501-c-3 not-for-profit foundation. Federal Tax ID 31-1102549. Its mission is to raise money to provide scholarship funds for student pharmacists and resources for grants to fund innovative pharmacy projects.  The PEF is the ACPE accredited provider for continuing education offered in conjunction with the Alliance.  PEF has owned our office building prior to the sale in September 2015.  Each year the PEF holds a golf outing to raise funds.  PEF also awards three Joseph E.
