General Donations

DonateYour contributions support our work throughout metropolitan Chicago on behalf of people and families living with lung diseases including lung cancer, asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and more.

Respiratory Health Association partners with other organizations to keep our administrative costs low and our impact for lung health as high as possible. With our many partners, we fund groundbreaking lung disease research at major institutions including Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine, Rush University Medical Center and University of Chicago. Visit our currently funded page to learn more about the ways in which we advance lung disease treatments and care. 

We also minimize fundraising costs by participating as the charity beneficiary of events such as the Chicago Auto Show First Look for Charity and Chill: An International Wine and Culinary Event at the Merchandise Mart. Through these events, we incur minimal expenses while benefiting from ticket proceeds and additional revenues from silent auctions, raffles and the like.

Donations also help us fund our many community programs, which include tobacco cessation courses and asthma education.
