The Kidney Foundation stands behind those affected by kidney disease. By championing systemic changes and increasing public awareness of kidney health and organ donation, we are alleviating the burden of kidney disease.

Impact-Related Facts 

Your support has a tangible impact

Thanks to the generosity of our supporters, last year:

  • 4,100 received short-term financial assistance
  • 58,900 educational materials were distributed
  • $2,554,618 was invested in kidney research 
  • 5,500 accessed the risk awareness tool 

Our programs are evolving to ensure funding investments are made in the areas that will have the greatest impact on patients’ lives. these include our peer support program, which offers patients the support of someone who has also experienced kidney failure and can help those who are newly diagnosed get back on their feet and ready to fight back against kidney failure.
