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.

Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) is a preventable and treatable disease. The COPD Foundation was established to speed innovations which will make treatment more effective and affordable, to undertake initiatives that result in expanded services for COPD patients, and improve the lives of patients with COPD and related disorders (through scientific research, education & awareness) that will lead to prevention and a stop in the progression of COPD.

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.
