Patient Assistance Fund and Charitable Trust

The Patient Assistance Fund

Dear Friends of Wellness Rx:

A sincere thank you for your continued assistance in helping Wellness Rx bring needed services to our Mountain Top community!

In May 2020, we entered into our fifth year as a local business and remain very proud of our success. Our Wellness Center continues to experience powerful stories of helping others in need, patient satisfaction is high, and our partnership with Albany College of Pharmacy continues to grow.

We remain especially proud of gaining the trust of our local community and providing assistance to second family homeowners, guests of local resorts/hotels/retreat centers, and our growing international and domestic tourist community.

Our blending of natural medicine with traditional medicine is emerging as an interesting story, especially for the profession of pharmacy. For example, when media coverage on CBD oil created a national debate, we studied 21 patients over a period of 90 days to document results. Now we have facts to help guide our patients.

But, without question, our unique Wellness Rx Patient Assistance Fund (PAF) is our number one accomplishment. The fund is totally supported by individual donations, and helps patients in times of need. In the past 12 months, the fund provided over $5,000 of assistance to patients. Wow!

‍In November 2018 the fund was recognized by the Mountain Top Inter-Faith Council for “taking care of our own” and $2,500 was raised in one collection! This past Christmas season our friends at the Peace Village Retreat Center made a $530 contribution to the fund. Every day at our Wellness Center, from second family owners to construction workers, contributions are made to the fund to help make a difference. What a statement of respect, trust, and love!

If you could help contribute to the fund this year, with any level of contribution, or know someone who could help, it would greatly be appreciated by Wellness Rx, our patients, and students.

The Patient Assistance Fund has no restrictions on how we use it to help our community members. We can use it to help with medication co-pays or costs, over the counter medications or products, vitamins, supplements, and other wellness related needs. There is, however, no tax deduction for donations to the Patient Assistance Fund. ‍(We do have the Wellness Rx Charitable Trust which will allow for tax deductions once approved by the IRS, more information is below.)

Checks for the PAF can be made out to Wellness Rx LLC (please note in the memo for Patient Assistance Fund) and mailed to:
