Walgreens Foundation

Since its founding in 1901, Walgreens and its employees have recognized the connection between strong communities and good business. The Walgreen motto, "The Pharmacy America Trusts," reflects their belief in ethical business practices and their respect for the dedication of their employees in improving the quality of life in their communities. As Walgreen grows and brings its stores to new markets and new neighborhoods, they bring a tradition of supporting the health needs of theirr patients. Because they cannot support every worthy program, they have developed these guidelines to help eligible nonprofit organizations understand their priorities, values, and limitations.

Organizations seeking funding should have a specific focus on improving Civic and Community outreach. For grant consideration, eligible nonprofits must apply online. Telephone inquiries and faxed requests are not accepted. Please allow a minimum of 4 to 6 weeks for a response. Telephone inquiries and faxed requests will not be considered.

Does your chapter have Walgreens' employees? Is your chapter interested in seeking out funding from Walgreens Foundation?
