Joining is simple. Visit and click START FUNDRAISING in the top right corner. You will see this list of ways you can choose to fundraise:

CELEBRATE: Ask for donations instead of gifts on your special day. It’s easy to dedicate your birthday, anniversary, graduation or kidneyversary to helping kidney patients!

HONOR: Honor a loved one or remember someone special by creating a fundraising campaign. Your fundraising and personal tribute to your loved one will make a difference in the lives of countless others fighting kidney disease.

CREATE: Anything is possible and you can fund the fight against kidney disease your own way! Whether it’s a BBQ, bake sale, game night or community event, you are empowered to fund the fight in your own creative way.

COMPETE: When you run, bike, walk or play a sport, you can raise money to help kidney patients. Joining KidneyNation to fundraise is the first step in your race to fund the fight.

Click when you’ve decided which way to fundraise and a registration form will open for you to complete. Once you have completed the registration form, a personal fundraising website will be created for you. You will be taken immediately to your website where you can make changes, tell your story, upload pictures and get started fundraising.

Our KidneyNation team will reach out to you by phone and email after you join. We are available to help you with your fundraising campaign, share tools and ideas and cheer you on to success!

If you have questions or need help registering to fundraise, please call the KidneyNation team at 240.292.7056 or email Martin McNutt, Director of Community Engagement (
