About The COPD Foundation

The COPD Foundation is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization created in 2004, with offices in Washington, D.C. and Miami, FL.

The COPD Foundation was established to improve the lives of people with COPD, bronchiectasis, and nontuberculous mycobacterial (NTM) lung disease through initiatives that expand services and speed innovations which will make treatment more effective and affordable. We do this through scientific research, education, advocacy, and awareness with the goal of disease prevention and progression, and ultimately a cure.


We engage, educate and empower our community through a unique 360 degree approach

We mobilize partnerships between patients, caregivers, health care professionals, researchers, academic institutions, government agencies, patient advocacy groups, and industry leaders with a common mission.
