PLEI develops leaders among student pharmacists and pharmacists by conducting programs to improve leadership skills, to strengthen our profession, and thereby advance the public health. 

We need your help to reach further and help more leaders become better leaders. For Pharmacy. For the communities we serve. The Pharmacy Leadership Endowment & Investment (PLEI) Fund is an endowment to support PLEI in perpetuity.

The PLEI Endowment started in 2005 when Ralph L. Saroyan made a $10,000 gift. Since then, over 445 people have pledged over $685,000 and donated over $640,000. 

In 2020, our overall endowment exceeded our initial goal of $1 million. We are proud that our donors continue to entrust us with financial resources to develop leaders, transform the industry, and inspire our colleagues through our leadership education, scholarships, and grants.

Some of our steadiest donors do so painlessly, by telling their bank or credit card to donate $50 or $100 per month and then turning their attention to other matters. We thank our sustaining members most especially because their generosity builds and builds!

Your donations help PLEI carry on its mission of developing leaders for pharmacy. By improving the leadership and self-awareness skills of future and current pharmacists, we will strengthen the profession and serve our communities.
