How Your Support Helps

Kidney Walks are a vital source of support as we provide real-time assistance for those in need. More than 80 cents of every dollar donated goes to research, patient services, professional education, public health education, and community services.  

  • Action: We ensure that 37 million Americans living with chronic kidney disease get diagnosed, treated and supported early. 

  • Education: We provide the public, patients, and healthcare professionals with tools to promote kidney health.

  • Accelerating Change: We advocate for change on Capitol Hill and support life-saving research

NKF meets the comprehensive standards of America’s most experienced charity evaluator, the Better Business Bureau Wise Giving Alliance.
