uniPHARM & Medicine Centre Pharmacies Charitable Foundation (UMC Charity)
As a result of the dedication of its members to various charities (see the tab "Our Story" for detailed information), uniPHARM Wholesale Drugs Ltd. and its banner program Medicine Centre, created the uniPHARM & Medicine Centre Pharmacies Charitable Foundation (UMC Charity) to formalize the charitable activities of their company. Over the past few years through the culmination of a thoughtful vision and the work of some dedicated members of the uniPHARM family, the UMC Charity was established as a registered Canadian charity in July 2009.
The key area of focus for the UMC Charity is to support and encourage charities that offer essential services, support and research to those suffering from chronic and critical illness. Furthermore, we intend to target our efforts at supporting charities that otherwise have a difficult time with fundraising and may not have such a high profile within the greater community.
Our mandate is to continually increase financial support to the many vital and underfunded health related charities across Canada. As a Foundation we are committed to aligning with non-profit partners that can make a significant impact without bureaucracy and high administration costs.
