Workplace Giving

Workplace Giving is one of the easiest ways to give to the American Kidney Fund. You make one decision each year—how much you want to give. Then your employer handles all the paperwork through payroll deduction. Your gift is spread out in smaller, manageable amounts throughout the year. 

Just a few dollars per pay period from your paycheck can add up to significant help for a kidney patient . . . and you benefit from a charitable tax deduction at the end of the year.

Whether you are a federal or state employee, a member of the military, or work for a private company, you have many options for participating in Workplace Giving.

Corporate Giving Campaigns

By designating a small portion of your paycheck as an automatic gift to the American Kidney Fund, over the course of a year you can make a huge difference in the life of someone who is living with kidney disease. For example:

If you give this amount per week 

Over the course of one year, your gift has the power to:


 Buy nutritional supplements to help nourish a child or frail adult on dialysis


 Buy a two-week supply of medicine for dialysis patients


 Help with airfare for kidney donors or transplant recipients to fly to distant transplant locations
