Join the American Kidney Fund and help empower, fight for and honor those impacted by kidney disease. Please give now and help provide lifesaving care, support prevention and education efforts, and help advocate for kidney patients and their living donors.

Donate to the fight


Right now, more than 30 million Americans are affected by kidney disease. Most often caused by diabetes or high blood pressure, kidney disease usually has no early symptoms, which is why it’s so important to be tested. There's currently no cure for kidney disease, but it can be treated. Understanding its causes and taking steps to live healthier can help prevent kidney disease.

Living donation saves lives.

More than 114,000 men, women and children await lifesaving organ transplants. 100,000 people are waiting and in need of a kidney. Living organ donation helps save lives.


Stand with us to protect the rights of living organ donors, and stand with people affected by kidney disease who are fighting for their lives. Take the pledge now.

Caregivers need help, too.

When a loved one has kidney disease, you might not know how to help. You might also feel stressed about fulfilling your other day-to-day obligations while caring for your loved one. You’re not alone.
