Donate to IPNA Today

You can help bring our Vision to fruition: Optimal Care for All Children with Kidney Disease. Since 1974, we have worked tirelessly to disseminate training and knowledge to doctors worldwide to treat children with kidney disease. IPNA is doing exceptional work, yet the need for IPNA and its programs is still enormous. Kidney issues dramatically impact global health, yet sadly, kidney disease does not receive the publicity that cancer and heart disease generate. As a result, IPNA must work harder to raise awareness about kidney disease in children and IPNA’s mission.

A donation in any amount will help us further our mission. Our approach is literally saving the lives of children with kidney disease all over the world. Help us strengthen and expand our programs to better support nephrologists, who can then teach and train their colleagues in the countries where children with kidney disease need us most.  Your support now is critical, so please make a donation today.

IPNA is a US-organized 501(c)3, nonprofit charitable organization providing support for global programs. Your donation is tax-deductible to the full extent allowed by law. Your generosity and support are greatly appreciated.
