Mission Statement

The PKD Foundation mission is to promote research to find a cure for PKD (polycystic kidney disease) and improve the care and treatment of those it affects. We want to establish a new Buffalo Chapter, which will concentrate on five main mission areas: raising money for PKD research, increasing awareness of PKD, educating the public about PKD, supporting those affected by PKD and lobbying Congress for increased PKD research funding.

Description

The PKD Foundation was founded in 1982 in Kansas City, Missouri by Dr. Jared Grantham (a PKD researcher) and Joseph Bruening (whose family members had PKD). The PKD Foundation has grown over the years from an organization funding its first grant of $25,000 for PKD research in 1984 to annually funding millions of dollars of peer-approved research.
