Help people with kidney disease live their best lives

Create a fundraiser

Chronic kidney disease is an epidemic. It affects 10% of Americans and millions more around the world.

At Northwest Kidney Centers, we care for patients, educate the public and collaborate in kidney research. As a nonprofit, we appreciate support from the community to fund critical services for people with kidney disease — like intensive nursing care, nutritional supplements, free classes and charity care.

Support innovation in kidney care, education and research by creating your own fundraiser page! Raise funds in memory of someone you love. Use your kidney transplant anniversary, birthday, wedding or other milestone event to inspire people to donate. Get creative and set a big personal goal — like running a marathon or climbing a mountain. Or shave your head, take a polar plunge or complete another unique challenge. The sky’s the limit and we’ll support you every step of the way. Don’t wait. Create a fundraising page now to make a difference in the lives of people with kidney disease!
