Our Mission

Pacific Northwest Bleeding Disorders enhances the quality of life for individuals with bleeding disorders and their families through advocacy, assistance, outreach, education and research support.

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Statement

We, at Pacific Northwest Bleeding Disorders (PNWBD), are committed to diversity, equity, and inclusion. As supported by our mission, we believe in respecting, uplifting, and supporting diverse perspectives and lived experiences within our community. We are dedicated to dismantling systemic barriers that have historically affected marginalized communities including, but not limited to, the BIPOC community, the LGBTQIA+ community, people with disabilities, and undocumented immigrants. We will continue to work to create equitable practices and inclusionary programs that highlight and support underserved individuals with bleeding disorders.

Nonprofit Designation

In December 1963, Pacific Northwest Bleeding Disorders was established as a non-profit. PNWBD (previously known as Hemophilia Foundation of Oregon) is a 501 (c)3 non-profit organization (tax id #93-0551733) and depends on donations like yours to provide services and programs to people with bleeding disorders in Oregon and SW Washington. Direct Donations are 100% tax-deductible provided they meet IRS regulations.


We work hard to keep up to date on issues and work to educate our local politicians and health care officials about bleeding disorders and the resources for those affected to maintain the quality of life.


Our educational opportunities offer a wide variety of presentations including such topics as medical treatments, self-infusion, insurance issues, legislative challenges, coping skills and mental health.


Each year, PNWBD hosts an array of camps, retreats & meetings to promote lasting relationships between members, the HTC and PNWBD staff to form a strong, supportive community.


Designed to provide emergency relief for individuals with a bleeding disorder and/or their families. PNWBD hosts several community fundraisers & opportunities to donate to fund the patient assistance program.
