Workplace giving: an easy and convenient way to give

Giving through your workplace provides a convenient way to support our vision that one day no one will suffer the full effects of polycystic kidney disease (PKD). Your personal contribution through payroll deduction funds research grants, provides new education materials and elevates patients’ voices through advocacy and awareness.

How can I get started?

Contact your human resources department and check if they offer a workplace giving program. Workplace giving allows you to make tax-deductible donations to the PKD Foundation through payroll deduction.

United WayCan I give to the PKD Foundation through the United Way Workplace Campaign?

If you work at a company that participates in the United Way Workplace Campaign, you may have the option to write in the PKD Foundation. Check with your local United Way to see if the PKD Foundation is an eligible charity in your area.

While the PKD Foundation is not a United Way agency, it does receive gifts through the United Way donor designation program. The PKD Foundation will receive 75 to 90 percent of your total contribution after United Way administrative fees are taken out. United Way campaigns run mid-September through early November.
