About Lung Association of Alberta & NWT:
The Lung Association, Alberta & NWT (TLA) raises and allocates funds for research, advocacy, awareness and patient support for lung health in Alberta and the Northwest Territories. Initially founded in 1939 as the Alberta Tuberculosis Association, TLA has broadened its scope to encompass all aspects of lung health. Currently, TLA focusses on issues related to asthma and allergies, COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease) and lung cancer, flu and infectious diseases, environmental issues, smoking prevention and quitting, sleep apnea, and tuberculosis. Its overall mission is to prevent lung disease and promote lung health.
In F2014, TLA, in association with The Canadian Association of Physicians for the Environment (CAPE) and The Asthma Society of Canada, launched an innovative billboard advertising campaign highlighting the dangers of coal-fired power. The ads were unique because they appeared on Canada’s first 100% solar-powered video screen, located on Calgary Trail in Edmonton. They also represented the first time in Alberta that billboards had been used to convey an anti-coal message.
In F2014, TLA's administrative costs were 10% of revenues, while fundraising costs were 34% of donations. TLA had $3.1m in funding reserves (including $758k in donor-endowed funds), which covers annual program costs 2.1 times.
This charity report is an update that is being reviewed by TLA. Changes and edits may be forthcoming.
