Give Your Way

AAKP encourages you to - Give Your Way! 

As the oldest and largest, fully-independent kidney patient organization in the U.S. – AAKP depends on contributions from you to help support the programs and activities of the Association. AAKP has aggressively distinguished itself as the leader in patient-centered education, advocacy, and patient engagement - making AAKP highly respected among fellow non-profit organizations; professional associations; the medical community; renal-industry partners; federal and government agencies; and most importantly the individuals and families we serve coping with chronic kidney disease.

We know you work hard for everything you earn – so AAKP pledges to work hard to put every dollar to work for kidney patients. Whether you are able to give a little or give a lot, AAKP has made it easy to give what you can, when you can and how you can.
