The PKD Foundation is the only organization in the United States solely dedicated to finding treatments and a cure for polycystic kidney disease (PKD).
Our mission: We give hope. We fund research, advocate for patients and build a community for all impacted by PKD.
Since 1982, we have been dedicated to supporting and improving the lives of patients and families impacted by PKD. These efforts are accomplished through promoting research to find treatments and a cure - we are the largest private funder of PKD research. We also provide education, advocacy and awareness on a national level, and provide direct services to local communities nationwide.
Our vision to #endPKD is only possible through the generosity of our donors. Many supporters have joined with us over the years and we are truly grateful.
If you would like to ensure a healthy future for those with PKD, consider including a gift to the PKD Foundation in your will or other estate plans. These gifts can take many forms, which you will learn about in the following pages. Many of these options will not only benefit the PKD Foundation, but can provide you and your loved ones with income in your retirement years, tax incentives or other advantages.
Your gifts make a profound difference in the lives of those living with PKD and their families. We hope that through careful estate planning, you discover the option that works best for you. If we can be of any assistance to you, please do not hesitate to contact us.
