How do I donate medication?
A RoundtableRx pharmacist will confirm whether a donation meets our strict quality & safety standards. Our quality & safety standards are provided by the Minnesota Board of Pharmacy. Approved donations from individuals can be mailed or dropped off at our office in Minneapolis. Donations from pharmacies & facilities will be delivered through our partners at SIRUM.
What happens to the items after I donate them to RoundtableRx?
Donated medications & supplies are inspected by a licensed pharmacist for quality & safety, then redistributed to our Local Repository clinic & pharmacy partners. These clinics & pharmacies dispense the medications directly to uninsured or under-insured Minnesota residents.
How else can I support RoundtableRx?

Individuals residing in Minnesota can donated medication & medical supplies to RoundtableRx. For details on what RoundtableRx can & cannot accept as a donation, please read our Donation FAQs section.
The best way to donating as an individual is to complete our Donor Questionnaire, which will help us determine if your donation meets the quality & safety requires.

Unfortunately, donations of prescription medication cannot be used as a tax deduction because they have no "Fair Market Value" and cannot be re-sold. Therefore a donation receipt for tax purposes cannot be provided. More information on this topic can be found here:
Donating Facilities & Pharmacies
Most of RoundtableRx's inventory is donated by long-term care (LTC) facilities & pharmacies. When a LTC resident changes medicine or passes away, the medicine they leave behind can be donated! Our colleagues at SIRUM assist RoundtableRx with the logistics. Donations made through SIRUM by LTC entities across the states are delivered to RoundtableRx & redistributed to Minnesotans in need at no-cost. Watch SIRUM's video (right) to learn about donating as a LTC entity, or contact RoundtableRx.
