The Lung Health Foundation is dedicated to creating breathing breakthroughs for Canadians living with lung disease and their caregivers. We are committed to addressing gaps in the healthcare system and are working hard to achieve our 5 key organizational goals focusing on prevention, diagnosis and treatment of lung disease.
Our goals are bold, and our ambition require philanthropic investments to make them a reality. In considering a gift to the Lung Health Foundation, you will be joining an elite group of investors who are contributing to our mission. Our team can help get you started – we work with individuals, family and private foundations, estate planner and companies to tailor an investment plan that would allow major gift donors to join our movement and invest in shared goals.

Ways To Give
Gift Securities and Stocks
Did you know that when you donate shares directly to the Lung Health Foundation, we not only receive a higher donation, but you also receive an official tax receipt showing a larger contribution without increased the costs?
Canada has among the most generous tax incentives for charitable giving in the world. Capital gains tax is not applied to donations of appreciated publicly traded securities. This added incentive reduces the real cost of your charitable giving.
Gifting stocks and securities is an increasingly impactful way to support the Lung Health Foundation and the work we do to improve the lung health of Canadians. Your receipt will reflect fair market value, the amount of the closing trading price on the day we receive the shares. Our policy is to sell all securities donated as soon as we receive them.

How do we make it happen?
Although we are happy to provide guidance as to the various options open to our donors, it is always recommended that this information is shared with the donors legal and/or financial team to make the decision that is right for them and their estate.
Breathing is everybody’s business
True, our goals are bold and ambitious. But we also believe that we have a lot of good company. Or, perhaps we should say, companies. The Lung Health Foundation collaborates with all sorts of organizations across the province to help accelerate progress in research, provide information to the public and influence health policy. Talk to us about potential partnering opportunities. If we are to truly lead the way to breathing breakthroughs, we must work together as one.
Despite the promise that the many advances in lung health represent, there remain significant challenges and barriers that need to be addressed. There continues to be a lack of knowledge and understanding around available treatment options, preventative and management strategies, and early diagnosis.
The Lung Health Foundation aims to close the gaps that exist in lung disease prevention, management, and treatment through various educational and awareness campaigns. We continue our efforts in providing patients with the needed knowledge and supports to breathe with ease.
Educational partnership opportunities include:
- Asthma: helping Canadians take control of their breathing
- COPD: Helping the missing million
- Lung Cancer: closing the gaps in lung cancer care
