Please consider making a gift to any of the campaigns listed below or to another fund that you wish to support. Gifts can be made in a number of ways on a monthly, quarterly, bi-annual or annual basis. If you have any questions regarding Annual Giving and ways to make a gift, please visit Ways to Give on acphs.edu OR contact Bill Jabour, Director of Annual Giving and Alumni Relations, at 518.694.7393 or alumni@acphs.edu.

 Annual Fund

Your gift to the Annual Fund advances ACPHS's highest priorities and most vital initiatives. The Annual Fund supports:
  • Student scholarships
  • Academic programs
  • Innovations in teaching
  • Faculty recruitment and retention
  • Unique opportunities for students, faculty, and staff each year

The fact is that tuition and government support provide only a portion of the funding required to meet the needs of today's students and tomorrow's pharmacy and health care professionals. The Annual Fund is a crucial component in bridging the gap between tuition and government support and the actual cost of educating students.

Please consider making a gift to the 2014-2015 Annual Fund. Together we can reach our fundraising goal for this year of $350,000. Every gift, no matter the size, makes an immediate impact on students and families.
