Welcome to the AKF community!

Welcome to the American Kidney Fund (AKF) - we touch more patient lives than any other kidney disease nonprofit, while spending 97 cents of every dollar on programs and services. Thank you for joining our community and for your interest and support of our work on behalf of 37 million Americans with kidney disease today. We enable 1 in 5 U.S. dialysis patients to access lifesaving medical care — including dialysis and transplantation. We also focus on preventing kidney disease for all those at risk and educating those who already have the disease.

Friends like you are behind everything we do: financial assistance, transplant resources, clinical research and prevention programs. Watch Mike Spigler, Vice President of Patient Services, explain how AKF meets the needs of kidney patients and those at risk for kidney disease.
