The Rite Aid Foundation

Our mission is to improve the health and wellness of our communities and serve as a catalyst for positive change

The Rite Aid Foundation


Together, Rite Aid and The Rite Aid Foundation are committed to optimizing the health and wellness of the communities we serve. We aim to serve as a catalyst for positive change, with a particular focus on underserved and disadvantaged segments of society. 


As the charitable foundation for a top Three Pharmacy in the U.S. and Fortune 150 company delivering healthcare services, vital medications and retail products to more than 1.6 Americans daily, we see the challenges that individuals and families face every day. They stand across the counter from our associates.


The Rite Aid Foundation confronts and addresses those challenges and the profound inequities and divides in our communities – including racial, ethnic, socioeconomic, health and education divides – with energy, passion and determination, recognizing that discrimination is among the greatest threats to one’s health and well being.


With a network of nearly 500 supported nonprofit organizations and local, regional and national partners, The Rite Aid Foundation drives impact in key fields and recognizes that many small actions can drive big change.
