Our Mission

To serve kidney patients by providing financial assistance, education and support services. The Foundation also provides public education to promote organ donation awareness and prevention of kidney disease.

Kidney Walk Update

The Alabama Kidney Foundation (AKF) has decided to suspend all remaining Kidney Walks, taking place in Dothan (April 4th), Birmingham (April 18th), Huntsville (April 25th) and Montgomery (May 2nd).  While physical Kidney Walk events are not taking place on the dates as scheduled, our Regional Directors are working to decide the best course of action for their area’s Kidney Walk and will provide more information as it becomes available.

While our top priority is to keep our Kidney Walk participants and supporters safe and healthy, the needs of our kidney patients in Alabama go unchanged. Now more than ever, kidney patients will be turning to the Alabama Kidney Foundation to assist them with getting through this difficult time. They are among the population that is most threatened by this virus.

COVID-19 will likely affect funding for the Foundation’s Financial Assistance Program, but with your help, we can continue to meet the growing needs of our patients. Your continued support for these events will leave a lasting impact on kidney patients who need our help in Alabama.
