Thanks to your generous support the Lung Association has made great advances in the treatment and prevention of lung disease. We need your support to continue our fight and help the millions of Canadians who live with lung disease. The Lung Association takes its responsibility for donor dollars seriously and works to ensure every dollar is directed to priority areas that will have a real impact on the lung health of Canadians.
Your donations help to support:
- Local and National lung health programs like BreathWorks, which offers advice and information for people with COPD
- World-class medical research to find cures and better treatments for people with lung disease
- High-quality information and educational materials for patients and their families
- Financial assistance for newfoundlanders and Labradorians who must travel for a Lung Transplant
- Advocacy work ... we use our influence to encourage governments to put lung health on the political agenda and pass policies that will help to better treat and prevent lung disease

Memorial Gifts to the Lung Association are a thoughtful tribute which not only honours the memory of a relative, friend or an associate, but also serves the living by supporting medical research and educational programs.
Bequests, or designations in wills, are another method of contributing to charitable works. When you are making up your will, you can ask your lawyer to include a line designating a gift to an organization.
Research dollars are contributed to a national fund. Our National Societies evaluate research proposals and provide funding to worthy lung health and lung disease studies. The Lung Association's nation-wide research funding totalled over one million dollars last year.
