Mission Statement

The mission of the American Kidney Fund is to fight kidney disease through direct financial support to patients in need; health education; and prevention efforts.

Description

The American Kidney Fund leads the nation in providing charitable assistance to dialysis patients who need help with the costs associated with treating kidney failure. Last year, nearly 90,000 people--almost 1 out of every 4 dialysis patients in the United States--received assistance from the American Kidney Fund for health insurance premiums and other treatment-related expenses.

Millions of people nationwide benefit annually from the American Kidney Fund’s efforts to fight kidney disease through health education and prevention efforts.

The American Kidney Fund offers free kidney health screenings in communities nationwide, as well as extensive online health education materials and courses and a toll-free health information HelpLine (866.300.2900).

Great opportunity. Laydia was great to work with. Had the opportunity to screen blood pressure for all the wonderful women who attended the show. Definitely would love to work for this organization again.
