Help dialysis patients with treatment-related costs.

Make a difference in the fight against kidney disease!

Welcome to the American Kidney Fund (AKF) community and thank you for your interest! We invite you to learn more about our lifesaving work on behalf of 30 million Americans with kidney disease today.

The Safety Net Program provides an extra layer of security.

Dialysis patients have enough to be concerned with on a day to day basis as they manage their health. When they don’t have enough funds to cover expenses like transportation to and from treatment, or even essential medicines, it quickly becomes a serious problem.

As a top-rated charity, AKF spends 97 cents of every donated dollar on patients and programs. AKF's Safety Net Program provides the extra layer of security patients count on when they can't afford unexpected, treatment-related costs – and their health is put at risk.

Here’s how AKF’s Safety Net Program works
