Our partners

Lung Foundation Australia is Australia’s most trusted lung health charity. As a registered ACNC charity we work closely with a range of corporate and community partners to achieve our Mission. No partnership is approved without a careful review of the strategic alignment to our Mission, Purpose and Values.

The Lung Foundation Australia, its Board and staff follow a very strict policy framework for partnerships, and we maintain full control over the Foundation’s policy positions and statements.  Our partnerships are transparent and able to stand up to scrutiny. For complete transparency, Lung Foundation Australia has created a document defining how we work with companies and community organisations related to the industry. Read now.
