Founders' Annual Giving Society

More than 30 years ago, Jared J. Grantham, M.D., and Joseph H. Bruening founded the PKD Foundation with a vision to find treatments and a cure for PKD. The genes for PKD hadn't been identified, and there were only a handful of researchers in PKD science. They knew there was a lot of work ahead, but they were determined. Your annual gift of $1,000 or more funds our daily mission-critical work: promoting programs of research, advocacy, education, support and awareness so that one day no one will suffer the full effects of polycystic kidney disease. Donors are recognized at the following levels for their cumulative giving within a year. Members renew their support on an annual basis.

  • Gifts in excess of $100,000
  • $25,000 to $99,999
  • $10,000 to $24,999
  • $5,000 to $9,999
  • $2,500 to $4,999
  • $1,000 to $2,499
