Our St Louis Charity Helps Kidney Disease Patients Nationwide – Assist Us in Supporting the American Kidney Fund
Whether you donate to a charity in St Louis, St Charles, Ladue, Clayton, or surrounding communities in Missouri, it’s important to know how your donation is helping those in need. Giving to American Kidney Services (AKS) means that your donation of household items and clothing is transformed into funding that supports the American Kidney Fund (AKF).
AKF is a 501 (c)(3) charitable organization committed to providing direct financial assistance to kidney disease patients and their families who are struggling to meet their normal living expenses. The charity also aims to increase public awareness about kidney disease through educational initiatives and preventative services. Fiscal generosity has earned AKF multiple awards, including the organization’s 10th consecutive Four-Star rating from Charity Navigator in 2011 and being named one of 10 charities on Forbes Magazine’s list of 10 Gold Star Charities in 2003.
You can rest assured that your donation to our charity will help AKF continue to:
- Allocate 97 cents of each dollar raised toward kidney disease-related programs and educational services
- Support hundreds of thousands of patients across the country with monetary assistance to pay expenses, such as utilities and rent
