With the support of volunteers like you, the American Kidney Fund fights kidney disease every day. You can volunteer and help the American Kidney Fund deliver programs that educate, build awareness, drive advocacy and raise funds, resulting in greater public understanding and ultimately the prevention of kidney disease.

Volunteer at Kidney Action Day or other screening events

The American Kidney Fund's signature outreach event, Kidney Action Day, is held in cities where rates of kidney disease are higher than the national average. Kidney Action Day is a free, fun-filled, family-friendly event with a serious purpose: helping people understand their risk for kidney disease and how to prevent it. Volunteers are needed in many capacities from screening-related roles to distributing information and snacks. It takes a lot of people to put on a Kidney Action Day, and you can help by volunteering with us at our events.

In addition to Kidney Action Day, AKF offers free health screenings, kidney health educations sessions and follow-up services (including medical referrals and public education materials). These services are provided at a variety of venues including churches, expositions and festivals, dialysis centers, community centers, colleges, and corporate offices. Similarly, volunteers are needed in a variety of roles.
