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.
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.
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.
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.
PNWBD proudly hosts two annual fundraisers a year. In spring we hold the annual Unite walk for bleeding disorders. And in fall we host our annual Shooting for the Stars Auction
YETI, one of the strongest programs in the world of bleeding disorders across the US, is an experiential train-the-trainer weekend conference created by PNWBD.
