Donate Medications & Supplies

RoundtableRx accepts donations of unused, unexpired medications, & medical supplies. Long-term care pharmacies & skilled nursing facilities across Minnesota can donate, while individuals from any state can donate to RoundtableRx. All donations are inspected for quality & safety by a pharmacist before being redistributed to Minnesotans in need! 

Individuals, pharmacies, clinics, long-term care facilities, & manufacturers can all donate prescription & over-the-counter medication, as well as medical supplies. Donations must meet our criteria found in our Donation FAQs.

Contact RoundtableRx by email at info@roundtablerx.org with any questions.

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.

Individual Donors

Individual Donors

Individuals residing in any state can donate 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 donate as an individual is to complete our Donor Questionnaire, which will help us determine if your donation meets our quality & safety requirements.

If you are unable to complete the Donor Questionnaire, you can contact us by email at info@roundtablerx.org as an alternative. Please include a completed Donor Form with your email

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 Phrmacies & Facilities

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 state 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

Thank you to our existing LTC donors for your partnership!
