Welcome to the NKF Action Center

The National Kidney Foundation (NKF) is the largest, most comprehensive and longstanding, patient centric organization dedicated to the awareness, prevention and treatment of kidney disease in the US. Together, we can enhance the lives of kidney patients by making our voices heard in support of the issues affecting funding, treatment, research and more. Join the effort today.

Hear Our Mission In Your Advocates Own Words

Listen to our Kidney Advocacy Committee patients and other supporters  talk about why they have raised their voices for kidney patients across the country.  You can also hear more about the Annual Kidney Patient Summit from our advocates.


Use Your Voice to Help Kidney Disease Patients

To keep our momentum in Washington, D.C. and your state capitals, we need to share your stories.  When we are asked, “Are there examples of a living kidney donor being discriminated against in…” or “Tell me about constituents whose lives would have been changed by earlier detection of kidney disease…” we want to share your story with them.

Share Your Story With Us!
