Your donation fuels our fight

When you give to the American Kidney Fund (AKF), you do more than make a donation. You provide lifesaving assistance when patients have nowhere else to turn. You demonstrate that someone cares. And you join us in fighting kidney disease on all fronts: from prevention and research to treatment and transplant.

    80%+ of dialysis patients cannot work due to the demands of their treatments.

97 cents of every donated dollar goes to patients and programs

Every success, milestone and breakthrough we achieve for patients and their families depends on caring and generous people like you. Your gift goes further when you give to AKF.  

AKF Donor Theresa B shares why it's important to support AKF.

My kidney transplant would not have been possible without my daughter [living donor], the medical team, and my caretakers that all helped to make this happen. I truly wish everyone has this opportunity to receive a living donor and have the support that I received.

You helped me tremendously by paying my premiums during my dialysis treatments. I am alive because there was help. I am a post kidney transplant recipient and try to help whenever I can.
