One Day, Three Ways to Give

Give Your Time

Unite to fight PKD by volunteering. Here are ways you can pledge to give your time this #GivingTuesday.

PKD Chapters

Get involved with one of our 62-volunteer led local Chapters across the country, where you can connect with others who share the same passion for ending PKD. The Chapters serve as the backbone of the PKD community and bring to life the mission of the organization by ensuring that no one faces this disease alone.

  • Chapters host education meetings, which provide valuable information from health care professionals, while support activities range from lending a listening ear to organized group outings.
  • They raise funds for the Foundation through events like the Walk for PKD.
  • They also increase awareness of PKD and connect local patients and families to each other.

Whatever your interest, there plenty of ways to get involved.

DIY for PKD: Fundraise Your Way

Are you passionate about ending PKD? Take the fight against polycystic kidney disease into your own hands by organizing a local fundraiser.

You can do just about anything to raise dollars for PKD. Sean plunged into freezing waters. Cyrilla hiked 500 miles. Zac threw his daughter Anabel a birthday party. And you? You can host a lemonade stand, neighborhood garage sale, bowl-a-thon, work jeans day or dinner party for PKD… the sky is the limit!
