Celebrate National Kidney Month with a gift to NKF

Summary

The National Kidney Foundation (NKF) is calling on you to join the fight against kidney disease. Over 26 million Americans have kidney disease and most don't know it. Early detection and treatment can slow or even prevent the progression of kidney disease. That's why NKF's community based initiative, KEEP Healthy, offers free kidney health screenings to those at-risk of kidney disease. With the support of people like you, we can continue advancing our mission.

Challenge

Our work is about making futures possible for people with CKD - something we couldn't do without your support.It's unacceptable that 9 of every 10 people living with CKD aren't diagnosed until their kidney function is already life-threatening. That's why in the year ahead we'll focus on CKDintercept, our bold new initiative to eliminate late diagnoses and misdiagnoses. Together, we are putting the full force of this organization behind raising kidney disease to a national priority.

Solution

Each contribution, no matter the value, allows the National Kidney Foundation (NKF) to promote kidney health, spread awareness of CKD, and improve the lives of those living with it, through our varied and proven programs: Prevention education and screening programs that reach over 20,000 people every year. Groundbreaking research on chronic kidney disease and its treatments. Critical advocacy in support of the Living Donor Protection Act, a bi-partisan effort to eliminate barriers

Long-Term Impact

Together, we will provide the resources, tools and early detection initiatives so that fewer people face late-stage diagnosis and premature death.
