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 and related lung conditions 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 ultimate goal of prevention of disease and its progression.

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 and industry leaders with a common mission of preventing COPD, improving the lives of those affected and stopping the progression of COPD.
