About British Columbia Lung Association:
The BC Lung Association (BCLA) was initially founded in 1906 as the Anti-Tuberculosis Society. In 1978, the Society changed its name to the BC Lung Association, broadening its focus to all respiratory diseases including asthma, lung cancer, sleep apnea and COPD. Its mission is to lead provincial and international lung health initiatives, prevent lung disease, help people manage lung disease and promote lung health.
Within the province, the BCLA operates support groups for various respiratory diseases, funds research pertaining to lung diseases, offers a range of information resources and educational programs, advocates for lung health-conscious policy, and operates a number of specific programs like the BC Smoking Cessation Program.
In F2015 administrative costs were 7% of revenues, while fundraising costs were 48% of donations. Funding reserves of $11.6m cover annual program costs 2.2 times.
