Donate | East Tennessee Kidney Foundation, Inc.™



The East Tennessee Kidney Foundation, Inc.™ relies entirely upon grants and private donations to operate and fund its patient services programs. ETKF provides $65/month to pay for 215+ individuals’ transportation expenses so they can reach life-saving dialysis treatments. In addition to these 215+ patients, there are many others on our waiting list. By setting up a recurring gift of $65/month, you can provide a patient on our waiting list with a year’s worth of transportation expenses!

You can help by making a donation of any size; all gifts are appreciated and very impactful. Setting up a recurring (monthly) gift can be a budget-friendly way to make an impact throughout the entire year. We also have other ways to donate such as vehicles, new blankets, scarves, hats, mittens, and in-kind donations for fund raising events.

Your donation always stays in East Tennessee and goes directly towards providing individuals with financial and material assistance to improve the quality of their lives. Your donation will also help us provide information and education on the prevention & early detection of kidney disease. Thank you for supporting our community! We, and the patients we serve, appreciate you very much!
