Founders Day Giving Challenge Results

Founders Day Giving Challenge

On Nov. 11, 1864, University of Health Sciences and Pharmacy in St. Louis was officially founded in the hall of the St. Louis Medical College.

In recent years, Founders Day has become one of the University's most important traditions, as the campus community unites to reflect on all those who have contributed to the University's rich history.

The Founders Day Giving Challenge, our dedicated day of giving, is a great way to celebrate our founding and history while supporting current and future generations of students.
