The Power of the Gift
Each year, the Alabama Kidney Foundation meets thousands of requests for help by distributing more than 60% of its operating budget to kidney patients through its assistance programs. We are able to do that because of generous supporters like you. Your Gift Can Make A Difference! Your donation enables us to help Alabama’s kidney disease patients when they have nowhere else to turn.
Please consider making a difference for thousands of Alabamians today by making a tax-deductible gift to the Foundation. You can donate online by going to the AKF’s Network for Good page.

Alabama Kidney Foundation’s Legacy Society
The AKF’s Legacy Society honors the charitable individuals who will leave a lasting impact on Alabama’s kidney patients through a gift from their estate. Each year, thousands of kidney patients in need turn to the AKF for Financial Assistance, Education, and Support Services. As a member of the Legacy Society, you will become part of a group of individuals and families who care about the continuity of critical services the AKF provides to kidney patients in the state.
A planned gift can be a simple bequest in your will or a more complex arrangement involving a charitable remainder trust or charitable lead trust. You can use charitable assets that range from cash and stock to real estate or a life insurance policy.
How to join our Legacy Society
Becoming a Legacy Society member is simple. Include the Alabama Kidney Foundation as a beneficiary of a gift from your estate and notify us that you have done so. We can help you or your professional advisor with recommended language to fulfill your charitable intent.

- Access to our expert staff to help you fulfill your personal philanthropic goals.
