Join us to fight kidney disease on
all fronts

37 million Americans are living with kidney disease, but most don't know it. The American Kidney Fund (AKF) is the only organization that takes a comprehensive approach to ending this devastating illness. From prevention through post-transplant living, our work is powered by a caring community of people like you. 

I am not alone.

"When I was first diagnosed and started dialysis, I was struggling to keep my job. I'd never felt so alone. AKF connected me with a community of caregivers and patients like me."

I will fight for people like my mom.

"My mom fought kidney disease and for as long as I live, I will fight for people like her. "

I will live a good life.

"AKF's educational materials, recipes and other free resources are helping me overcome my health challenges and live an independent and positive life."

We're fighting for kidney equity in kidney disease

Everyone deserves to be as healthy as they can, no matter where they live, what language they speak or the color of their skin. But in kidney disease, race and ethnicity play a significant role. At the American Kidney Fund, we are working to change that.
