AKF Ambassador on Capitol Hill

AKF's advocacy and comment letters

Decisions made by Congress and federal and state government agencies affect the quality of care that kidney patients receive, the amount of available funding for kidney disease research, and a myriad of other factors that impact the kidney patient experience. The American Kidney Fund continuously monitors regulations, legislation and policy issues that may affect kidney patients and their families. 

AKF Living Donor Protection Report Card

Where Americans live can affect their ability to give the gift of life

AKF's State of the States: 2021 Living Donor Protection Report Card evaluates each state and the District of Columbia on how well their existing laws encourage living organ donation and reduce barriers for living donors.

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.
