Ways to give
There are many ways to give, including supporting PHA with a general gift, honoring the memory of a loved one with a memorial gift, or helping keep hope alive by making a monthly gift.
Use our secure form to donate online or use this printable form to donate by mail.
Naming the Pulmonary Hypertension Association as the recipient of memorial gifts in your loved one’s name honors the strength and courage of their fight while also uniting your friends and family in making strides for all those touched by pulmonary hypertension.
Each issue of Pathlight, PHA’s quarterly magazine, is dedicated to the patients who have lost their battle with PH. PHA publishes the Passages list in each issue of Pathlight to honor those who are gone but not forgotten. The accuracy of this list is very important to us.
We ask that you notify PHA of a passing as soon as you are able, so we can include your loved one in our Passages listing and update our records accordingly. Please contact us at 301-565-3004 or Passages@PHAssociation.org to inform PHA of a loved one’s passing.
When including a request for donations in memory of a loved one in a newspaper notice, PHA suggests the following format:
The family requests memorial contributions be sent to the Pulmonary Hypertension Association, 801 Roeder Road, Suite 1000, Silver Spring, Md. 20910 or make a memorial gift online at www.PHAssociation.org.
Many families find it helpful to provide cards at the memorial service that provide instructions on making a memorial gift. PHA offers a customizable template (Word) for you to use in printing memorial cards.
When a memorial gift is received by PHA, we will promptly send a letter to the person or family indicated, notifying them of the thoughtful donation. We will also mail a letter to the donor, thanking them for their generosity.
If you have any questions about notifying PHA of a passing, or about designating memorial gifts to the Pulmonary Hypertension Association, please contact us at 301-565-3004 or Passages@PHAssociation.org.
