The American Kidney Fund aims to reduce kidney disease through public awareness campaigns, free health screenings, health education materials and courses.

I am impressed that 97cents of every dollar spent by AKF goes directly to programs and services.

AKF is great. They provided much needed help to many patients with kidney disease. Patients on dialysis face many challenges and financial assistance can go a long away.

AKF also support young researchers to help find better ways to treat kidney disease.

I am proud to be associated with this phenomenal non-profit organization. The AKF is one of the most charitable and efficient organizations I know. To prove this point, in 2010, 97 cents out of every dollar raised by the AKF was spent directly on patient services and programs. These programs reach, help and educate, thousands of American individuals with kidney disease, including the most vulnerable patients, ie: the poor, minorities, those with limited English proficiency. These patients have a particularly high risk of experiencing adverse health outcomes while on dialysis and are in most need of outreach and education. The AKF fills this health care gap, among others. I can't say enough positive things about this organization.

I am currently an AKF Clinical Scientist in Nephrology Fellow. Thus I am directly benefiting from this organization's goal to develop young physicians into independent, high-caliber clinical researchers who can and will improve the overall health of kidney patients worldwide.

I have been particularly impressed with this organization's focus on kidney awareness and education. I strongly believe that education is the starting point for any change and improvement, and therefore would recommend that the AKF perform additional kidney awareness events and screenings.

I am a reciepient of research and salary support from the American Kidney Fund (AKF). This support helped me to develop research skills, accumulate a publication record, and apply and secure funding from the National Institure of Health. Thus, as it did for many others, the AKF helped me launch my research career.

The organization also provides numerous resources for patients. I have reviewed their education brochures for the organization and have been impressed by their commitment to patient education and constant motivation to try to increase health literacy in patients with kidney disease.

The Great!
