Mission Statement

The mission of the American Kidney Fund is to fight kidney disease through direct financial support to patients in need; health education; and prevention efforts.

Our Vision

The American Kidney Fund envisions a world without kidney disease. As we move toward that goal, we work to achieve a nation in which kidney patients have access to the health care they need, and one in which there are far fewer people with kidney disease.

Our Values 

Putting Patients First: We are the charity of choice working to ensure that kidney patients have access to quality health care that they need.

Leading with Integrity: The American Kidney Fund is recognized as a leading national health charity, known for its exemplary stewardship of the donated dollar.

Being a Valued Partner: The American Kidney Fund establishes strong relationships and strategic partnerships to meet the needs of kidney patients and to carry out programs to prevent the disease.

Promoting Team Excellence: The American Kidney Fund’s volunteer leadership and employees achieve a culture of excellence through individual initiative, creativity, teamwork, mutual respect, diversity and accountability.

Increasing Public Awareness of Kidney Disease: The American Kidney Fund is recognized as a leader in providing health education and intervention to people who are at risk for kidney disease.
