Volunteer with Us
Being a volunteer at The Kidney Foundation means joining a dynamic and diverse group of people who share a common purpose – to make a difference in the lives of others. We invite you to join thousands of people from across Canada who are making an important contribution to improving the lives of people with kidney disease.
Volunteering is a positive and rewarding experience. It encourages creativity and personal growth in a respectful and supportive environment. Also, we need you! Volunteers make our work possible – from funding vital research, to advocacy, to promoting greater understanding and awareness of kidney health and organ donation.
Whether you’re in high school, a full-time employee, a working parent, or newly retired – there are opportunities available to suit your particular needs and circumstances.
