National Volunteer Week

Volunteers are the heart of the PKD community and ensure no one faces polycystic kidney disease alone. The first local volunteer community was formed in 1987 and, since then, the PKD Foundation has been committed to growing our volunteer program to meet the evolving needs of all impacted by PKD.

Our local volunteers participate in fundraisers to support research, host community events, and build a true sense of belonging among PKD patients, family members, and friends throughout their journey with PKD. In addition, national groups of volunteers support the Foundation’s mission in areas of advocacy, patient support, education, and research. On average each year, PKD Foundation volunteers contribute over 27,000 volunteer hours valued at more than $700,000.
