There are many ways to give to the Kidney Foundation of Central Pennsylvania (KFCP). Consider contributing to Camp Kydnie, a legacy gift, and more! Every dollar counts toward kidney disease outreach, support and awareness. Because we are not affiliated with any national organization, every dollar raised here STAYS HERE in our 28-county region, helping thousands of people and their families impacted by kidney disease. We are the only organization of its kind helping those in need in our area with financial support.
Our Patient Emergency Assistance Fund provides cash assistance for healthy food, medications, and other essential expenses for qualifying patients receiving dialysis. Donations also help send children with kidney disease to Camp Kydnie, a special overnight camp in north Central Pennsylvania which takes place annually in June or July. It costs approximately $650 to send one child to camp, but the families of these children are only asked to pay $100 of that cost. The rest is provided by fundraising and donations, and no child is ever turned away from camp if his or her family cannot afford to pay.
Memorial Gifts and Honorariums A gift in honor or in memory of a loved one, friend, or co-worker is a wonderful way to pay tribute. For each honorarium or memorial gift we receive, we’ll send notification of the gift to the individual that you designate. This can be a family member, friend, or neighbor of the remembered or honored person. Include the name and address of the individual(s) you would like us to notify along with your gift.
Leave a Legacy Gifts made through wills, charitable remainder trusts, and other planned giving help to ensure that your philanthropic goals and the needs of the Kidney Foundation of Central Pennsylvania will be met for years to come.
