As the nation’s leading nonprofit working on behalf of the 31 million Americans with kidney disease, the American Kidney Fund (AKF) is dedicated to ensuring that every kidney patient has access to health care, and that every person at risk for kidney disease is empowered to prevent it. We fulfill our mission by providing a complete spectrum of programs and services: prevention outreach, top-rated health educational resources, and direct financial assistance enabling kidney patients to access lifesaving medical care, including dialysis and transplantation.
