The Frontiers Fund is the name of the ACCP Research Institute’s development campaign. Created in 2003, the fund has successfully raised and awarded more than $1 million in research grants and investigator development program funding. The Frontiers Fund is the mechanism by which the Research Institute, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, is able to meet the strategic goals of the Research Institute. A gift to the Frontiers Fund is the mechanism by which donors show support of the research agenda of ACCP.

To conceive and drive the research agenda of ACCP.
To help develop clinical pharmacy researchers.
To generate evidence…to further document the value of clinical pharmacy services and advance pharmacy research.
To create a sustainable national clinical pharmacy practice-based research network (PBRN).

The Frontiers Fund has allowed ACCP to significantly expand the scope of support it provides to clinical, translational, and health services (practice) research. It has allowed ACCP to significantly enhance its emphasis on investigator development.

Only 15% of the monies raised are allocated to administrative support. This is consistent with, or less than, the costs of similar national fundraising efforts, and it means that 85% of all donations are used to support new clinical pharmacy research.

Even though you may have invested in the Frontiers Fund last year, it’s critically important that we all do so again this year, that we make this an annual occurrence, and that we increase the size of our gift, if possible.

  • Contributions made to the Frontiers Fund of ACCP, which is a tax-exempt organization under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code, are deductible for computing income and estate taxes.
  • Show your support of education and research by making an annual gift to the Frontiers Fund, donating in memory of a loved one, giving in honor of a survivor, or commemorating your own award.

The Research Institute Board of Trustees (BOT) sets the overall funding priorities. The Trustees are elected by ACCP members and serve a 3-year term. In addition, appointed BOT members serve on the Board for terms of 2 years.
