About the Grants Management System
The American Kidney Fund’s Grants Management System (GMS) is an online system that enables efficient and timely processing of grant requests. Renal professionals use GMS to complete financial assistance applications for all of AKF’s financial assistance programs; obtain real-time status updates and grant histories; and upload any required back-up documents. The system meets HIPAA privacy requirements and is secure.
Dialysis patients also may register and use GMS to track the status of their grant applications.
How to Register for GMS
Click here to register as a user of GMS.
AKF has developed online GMS training modules for all users. These training modules provide information about AKF patient programs, as well as how to use GMS and are interactive, with screen shots, animations and case studies. There is no fee. Once you register for GMS, you will be able to click on the online training link within GMS to take the online training modules.
It is necessary for every user to complete at least one e-learning module within 90 days of registering to use GMS. Users who do not complete an e-learning module within 90 days of registration will be “locked out” and will not be able to continue using GMS until they complete the module. This program is approved by the National Association of Social Workers (approval #886443948) for 2 continuing education contact hours.
If you are having technical difficulties in registering for or using GMS, please contact our GMS Technical Support team at 1-800-795-3226 (Option #5) or by email. Thank you.
