Workplace giving

Giving through your workplace provides a convenient way to support the PKD Foundation and 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.

Check with your human resources department to see if they offer a workplace giving program. Workplace giving is an easy and efficient way to make tax-deductible donations to the PKD Foundation through payroll deduction.

Read about how PKD has impacted the lives of one federal employee’s family and why they choose to give to the PKD Foundation.

For employees that work at companies that participate 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.
