The American Kidney Fund (AKF) fights kidney disease on all fronts as the nation's leading kidney nonprofit. AKF works on behalf of the 37 million Americans living with kidney disease, and the millions more at risk, with an unmatched scope of programs that support people wherever they are in their fight against kidney disease - from prevention through post-transplant living.
With programs that address early detection, disease management, financial assistance, clinical research, innovation and advocacy, no kidney organization impacts more lives than AKF. One of the nation's top-rated nonprofits, AKF invests 97 cents of every donated dollar in programs and holds the highest 4-Star rating from Charity Navigator for 20 consecutive years and the Platinum Seal of Transparency from Candid, formerly GuideStar.
