Ways to Give

By giving to the American Lung Association you are helping us fight for healthy air and the millions of Americans affected by lung disease. Your contribution supports lung disease research, educational programs, advocacy and continual up-to-date information on respiratory diseases, their treatment and management.

There are many ways to help:

  • Make a One-time Gift
    Your personal contribution can be made online at any time. You can also download a form to mail in with your contribution. You will be supporting the vital research and programs that help those struggling with lung disease.
  • Give a Recurring Gift
    Recurring gifts ensure stable funding for our work. Your monthly gift helps us effectively budget our funding throughout the year so we can better serve those whose lives are affected by lung cancer, asthma, COPD and other lung diseases.
  • Remember or Honor a Loved One
    A contribution to the American Lung Association is a thoughtful way to recognize and honor someone close to you, especially if their life has been touched by lung disease. Gifts can also be made to recognize milestones in your or a loved one's life, such as a birthday, wedding, the anniversary of quitting smoking and more. If you wish, upon receipt of your gift, the American Lung Association notify the honoree or family of your gift. You can also create a special Tribute Fundraising Page in memory or honor of a loved one and invite friends and family to remember him or her.
  • Gift of Stock
    Making a gift of stock or other types of securities is an excellent way to both support our mission and potentially save on your taxes.
  • Give from Your Donor Advised Fund
    If you have a Donor Advised Fund, please consider making a grant from it to support the work of the American Lung Association.
  • Give from Your IRA or Retirement Plans
    The IRA Charitable Rollover, which became permanent in 2015, provides you with an excellent opportunity to make a gift during your lifetime from an asset that would be subject to multiple levels of taxation if it remained in your taxable estate.
  • Become a Corporate Partner
    See what our corporate supporters are doing to help fight for lung health, and discover ways your organization can participate.
  • Make a Gift in Your Will
    By making the Lung Association part of your long-range financial planning, you are giving a gift that will ensure the lung health of future generations. There are many ways to accomplish this, including gifts of securities (stocks, bonds or mutual funds), retirement plan distributions, life insurance policies and real estate.
  • Put Your Old Car to Good Use
    Donate your old car and help save lives. It's quick, easy and tax-deductible.
  • Double Your Gift
    Matching gifts are a great way to stretch your donation. Many companies support their employees who have generously donated to non-profit groups like the American Lung Association by matching the employee's contribution.
  • Use Amazon Smile
    When shopping on Amazon, use Smile.Amazon.com and choose to support the American Lung Association. Amazon will make a contribution every time you purchase something. It's easy and doesn’t cost you a thing!
  • Use Christmas Seals®
    Each year, millions observe the tradition of sealing holiday cards and packages with that year's special seal. Your Christmas Seals® donation supports the important fight against lung disease.
  • Donate on Alexa
    Alexa and Amazon Pay make it easy to donate by just using your voice. You can make your next donation by simply saying "Alexa, make a donation to the American Lung Association." Donations are processed by Amazon Pay using the information already stored in your Amazon account, so your payment information remains secure. We look forward to hearing from you.
