Each month, PharPoint Research hand-selects a non-profit to support through fund-raising and awareness building to aid in research and/or resource development. Also known as our Working Together for Change campaign, this company-wide initiative is dedicated to serving communities in need. Therefore, we are excited to announce The Conservation Fund as January’s selected non-profit for the Working Together for Change campaign.
