Legislative Defense Fund (LDF)

The OPA LDF was created in 2014 at the request of an independent pharmacy owner seeking to help OPA boost its advocacy efforts for pharmacists. Unlike a Political Action Committee (PAC) fund, where personal funds are given directly to political campaigns, both personal and corporate funds are accepted by the LDF to enhance our government affairs endeavors, and there are no limits on the amount you can give. Contributions from corporate funds may be tax deductible as a business expense. In the words of that pharmacy owner, “Better for OPA to have it than Uncle Sam.”

Ohio Pharmacists Political Action Committee (PAC)

The Pharmacy Political Action Committee is a voluntary, nonprofit, nonpartisan organization of pharmacists who are interested in promoting good government and public health. Pharmacy PAC money contributed by pharmacists goes to help candidates who support pharmacy in Ohio. That's right, your money is used to support political clout for Pharmacy … right here in Ohio!

Ohio Pharmacists Foundation (OPF)

The mission of the Ohio Pharmacists Foundation (OPF) is to provide educational programs for pharmacists, pharmacy technicians and consumers of health care that enhance the practice of pharmacy and patient outcomes, and to conduct research to support these efforts.

These activities will be directed to improve the knowledge of pharmacists, pharmacy technicians and the quality of pharmacists’ services to the general public. The continuing education programs presented by OPF are designed for pharmacists, pharmacy technicians and the public to address the daily issues of pharmacy.

Ernie Boyd OPA Building Sustainability and Enhancement Fund

During his 34-tenure as OPA Executive Director, one of Ernie’s most visible and long-lasting accomplishments was spearheading the purchase of OPA’s first permanent home since the Association’s founding in 1879. The building, the Center for Ohio Pharmacy, helps the Ohio Pharmacists Association and the Ohio Pharmacists Foundation fulfill their missions by serving as the site for many educational programs, board and committee meetings, and other gatherings, while also housing our offices. Although our mortgage is now paid off, the infrastructure of this 25-year-old building needs maintained. Your tax-deductible contribution will help maintain and improve the building.
