Donate to the School of Pharmacy

Your support will help continue the tradition of excellence in teaching, research, and public service.

Make a Gift

The generosity of alumni and friends has played a defining role in the ability of the University of Wisconsin-Madison School of Pharmacy to deliver one of the best professional pharmacy educations, a high quality undergraduate Pharmacology/Toxicology degree, new online MS programs, and to maintain one of the top scientific research programs in the country. Graduates of the School of Pharmacy’s programs are leaders and innovators in their fields and shape the future with exceptional patient care, new scientific discoveries, and research that impacts the delivery of health care.

With the launch of the seven-year Pharmacy Forward scholarship campaign in 2023, the School of Pharmacy will build a significantly larger foundation of support for admission scholarships. The School’s continuing success will be defined by its ability to support students and compete with peer institutions in an increasingly competitive marketplace. Your gifts help ensure that we are able to enroll the best and brightest students from all socio-economic backgrounds into professional pharmacy education and that the school can continue to attract and retain top graduate students and faculty. Gifts will also allow the School to find creative ways to meet students’ and faculty’s changing academic and professional needs. To ensure this bright future, the School is seeking gifts in the following priority areas:


Respond to Opportunities and Challenges: School of Pharmacy Annual Fund

Annual unrestricted gifts to the Annual Fund move the School forward by providing a base of flexible funds to respond to challenges and opportunities that make the greatest impact. These needs change from year to year—sometimes from month to month—and this moving target of need and opportunity make unrestricted giving essential for the School’s success.

Prioritizing the Student Experience: Student Success and Support Fund

The Pharmacy Student Success and Support Fund is dedicated to the student experience, and gifts to this fund support a strong and inclusive community, preparation for future careers and residencies, activities for student organizations, and other student initiatives that make the School of Pharmacy a place where students can not only learn, but thrive.

Making a World-Class Education Affordable

An education at the School of Pharmacy should be affordable to all students regardless of their financial need. Scholarships like the Pharmacy Forward Fund, PAA Scholarship Fund, class scholarships, and other endowed scholarship funds ensure that the School of Pharmacy can recruit the best and brightest students. The School of Pharmacy offers over 250 scholarships every year yet more scholarships are needed to remain competitive with peer institutions.

Advance Special Initiatives and Programs

To prepare for a strong future, the School must build a base of permanent support for targeted research and educational programs that emerge in response to the rapid changes taking place in today’s scientific and health-care marketplace. Gifts to build these endowments are an investment in the future of the School of Pharmacy’s work to improve the health and well-being of people everywhere.
