Q: Why is Lost and Found Pharmacy a non-profit corporation?

According to The Pennsylvania Nonprofit Handbook, 6th Edition, the following are some of the differences between a nonprofit charity and a for-profit business:

  • A nonprofit charity is driven by its service mission philosophy rather than by the profit motive.
  • Any excess revenue over expenditures is funneled back into the institution to further its exempt purpose.
  • The charitable institution will likely remain in the community even if it suffers financial losses.
  • A nonprofit charity is more accountable for public service.
  • A non profit charity will proactively look for ways to respond to community needs without regard to any profit motive.

All of these qualities of a nonprofit charity are ones that we envision for Lost and Found Pharmacy. With these characteristics our hope is that there would be less of us and more of Christ in Lost and Found Pharmacy.
