How do my donations help?

At the American Lung Association, we believe healthy lungs and healthy air are worth fighting for. We provide support and education for those living with asthma, lung cancer, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), and fighting threats to lung health such as tobacco, air pollution, and more. Our vision is simple, but expansive: a world free of lung disease.

In March 2020, the American Lung Association launched a $25 million initiative to not fight COVID-19, but to defend against future respiratory virus pandemics. At the same time, we're continuing our advocacy work to support clean air and redoubling our long-term commitments to lifesaving research. 

Register to fundraise for this year's event and create your own page to share your personal story. Top fundraisers are acknowledged and featured throughout the year on our website and social media pages because of their common interest and dedication to the American Lung Association’s mission of saving lives by improving lung health.

Where can I send my donations?

Donations can be sent to the local American Lung Association office:
