About AKF

The American Kidney Fund (AKF) fights kidney disease on all fronts as the nation’s leading kidney nonprofit. AKF works on behalf of the 37 million Americans living with kidney disease, and the millions more at risk, with an unmatched scope of programs that support people wherever they are in their fight against kidney disease—from prevention through post-transplant living.

With programs of prevention, early detection, financial support, disease management, clinical research, innovation and advocacy, no kidney organization impacts more lives than AKF. With the nation’s largest free kidney health screening program, Know Your Kidneys™, AKF fosters kidney disease prevention and early detection in at-risk individuals and communities. One out of every 6 kidney failure patients cannot afford the cost of care, and AKF is there for them, providing lifesaving treatment-related financial assistance. AKF enables all people with kidney disease to live their healthiest lives through disease management education, award-winning public and professional health education materials, courses and webinars. AKF drives innovation through strategic partnerships and investment in clinical research to improve patient outcomes, and fights tirelessly for legislation and health policy to improve the lives of kidney patients. AKF’s KidneyNation online fundraising community unites Americans in support of AKF’s mission.

AKF is one of the nation’s top-rated nonprofits and invests 97 cents of every donated dollar in programs, not overhead. AKF holds the highest 4-Star rating from Charity Navigator and the Platinum Seal of Transparency from GuideStar.
