About the organization
Basic details : 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.
AKF is one of the nation’s top-rated nonprofits and invests 97 cents of every donated dollar in programs, not overhead. AKF holds the highest 4-Star rating from Charity Navigator and the Platinum Seal of Transparency from GuideStar.
Mission : Our mission is to fight kidney disease and help people live healthier lives. We achieve our mission by providing financial support to patients in need, and by delivering programs that educate, build awareness, and drive advocacy, resulting in greater public understanding and ultimately the prevention of kidney disease.
Vision : The American Kidney Fund's vision is a world without kidney disease. Until that day comes, we believe every kidney patient should have access to health care, and every person at risk for kidney disease should be empowered to prevent it.
