    Several special events take place throughout the year to assist in fundraising for our patient service programs. Events consist of a gala, golf outing, summer event, renal symposium and walk & 5K. Volunteers are needed to serve on the planning committees and for event day activities. Prior event volunteer experience is preferred but not required.
  • Health Fairs and Screenings

    Volunteers are needed to participate in community-wide health events throughout the year to educate those at risk for kidney disease. Individuals can assist by distributing literature and educating the public on the Foundation's programs and services. Healthcare professionals are also needed to assist in conducting blood pressure screenings.
  • Share Your Story

    Personal stories and experiences are a great way for others to learn about Chronic Kidney Disease and related disorders. Share your story so that someone else can learn about dialysis or transplantation. If you have utilized our services or are connected to the KFO, let us know so we can highlight your story and teach others about the Foundation.

Each year, during the holiday season, the Giving Tree provides gift cards to dialysis and transplant patients to help offset extra expenses, and for emergency situations. You can support by making a monetary donation, sending in a gift card, and/or organizing a fundraiser with your friends and family or workplace.
