It’s a thrilling time here at the PKD Foundation. We have so much success to celebrate this season and so many reasons to hope, because of you! Your support is fueling our unprecedented progress in PKD research and care.


In 2019, we

  • Awarded research funding to 30 outstanding PKD researchers (more than any other single year), and committed over $5M towards accelerating the development of new therapies for PKD patients.
  • Launched the ADPKD Registry, the first nationwide Patient Registry for individuals with ADPKD and arguably one of the most efficient and cost-effective paths toward more treatments and a cure.
  • Raised over $1.5 million for research at 54 Walk for PKD events.


This was an amazing year, but we’ve only just begun. Together, we will continue to be driven by our vision to #endPKD.
