You’ll feel better. So will those we help.

Support the research and professional education programs of the Palo Alto Center for Pulmonary Disease Prevention.


The work of the Palo Alto Center is now more critical than ever. New initiatives by the federal government are certain to force individuals to end their tobacco dependence. Unfortunately, many professionals in the medical community have not had the training or access to the tools they need. But with your help, they can. And in return you can take pride in knowing you have made an important difference in the lives of many – perhaps thousands – through a donation to our efforts.


All contributions and donations are fully tax deductible as provided by law. The Palo Alto Center is an IRS 501(c)3 non-profit educational and research organization. Our critical work depends on support from private citizens, foundations and corporations. Now more than ever we need to accelerate our research and education efforts to provide the thousands of people with the treatment they need to stop smoking. Donations of any amount are appreciated. Help others stop smoking today.




Join the growing effort to reduce smoking at home, at work – everywhere. Your gift will help support research that can lead to better tobacco-dependence treatment.
