$10,000 Goal

Our supporters join the American Lung Association to help save lives by advancing our mission of improving lung health and preventing lung disease nationwide while building awareness.  Since 1904, the American Lung Association has provided resources to research, educate and advocate on behalf of the millions of Americans that face life-threatening lung diseases like lung cancer, asthma and COPD.   Our work directly touches more than 20 million Americans each year and supports millions of Americans with our pioneering model of education, advocacy and research. 89 cents of every dollar goes to program services, 98 grants funded through our research program. For more than 120 years the American Lung Association has been the champion of lung health. When COVID-19 emerged as a nationwide pandemic, we launched the COVID-19 Initiative. Guided by our three main pillars of education, advocacy, and research, this bold initiative is committing $25M to end COVID-19 and stop other emerging respiratory viruses in their tracks.
