About SafeNetRx

Our Story

SafeNetRx is an Iowa-based 501(c)3 established in 2001 as a transparent partnership between the public and non-profit sectors to provide affordable medication access to patients in need. This partnership led to innovations in drug donation, charitable pharmacy, and the care for populations with unique pharmacy needs.

Our mission is to solve medication inequity through responsible collection and distribution of donated medicines.

Our Impact to Date

medicine and medical supplies from SafeNetRx.



In medicine has been donated for redistribution by donors from nearly all 50 states.



Tons of medication have been redirected for distribution to clinics and pharmacies or environmentally safe disposal.

Just Getting Started

We have made great progress, but there are still millions of Americans unable to access critically needed medicines and billions of unused medicines that could be repurposed.

Help support our mission today by donating to SafeNetRx!

Our vision is to be the national leader in the collection, inspection, and distribution of donated medicines through: 

  • Establishment of a national drug donation system based on the success of Iowa’s Drug Donation Repository model.
  • Demonstration of exemplary stewardship in the collection, inspection, distribution, and disposal of donated medicines.
  • Collaboration with industry leaders, academia, legislative bodies, and regulatory stakeholders to establish national standards for donated medicines.
  • Support of clinics, pharmacies, and other health care stakeholders in the delivery of safe, efficient, and effective pharmacy services for underserved populations.
  • Provision of training, research, and evaluation opportunities to support ongoing innovation in charitable pharmacy services.
