Organizational Profile

The American Kidney Fund leads the nation in providing charitable assistance to dialysis patients who need help with the costs associated with treating kidney failure. Last year, more than 87,000 people—1 out of every 5 U.S. dialysis patients—received assistance from the American Kidney Fund for health insurance premiums and other treatment-related expenses.

Our Credo

We must put the patients we serve and the public we are accountable to first; provide superior education, outreach and services, and always act with the highest level of integrity.

We must provide outstanding people the best opportunity to realize their potential. We must treat our teammates with respect, champion our diversity, share the responsibility of our successes, and accept accountability for our failures.

We must provide compensation that is fair and adequate, and working conditions that are clean, orderly and safe. We must be mindful of ways to help our employees fulfill their family responsibilities. We must have an environment where people feel free to make suggestions and complaints. There must be equal opportunity for employment, development and advancement for those qualified. We must provide competent management, and the actions of management must be just and ethical.

We are the employees of the American Kidney Fund and we “Reach Out, Give Hope, and Improve Lives!”
