Support Kidney Health New Zealand

Together we can identify some of the over 400,000 people with undiagnosed kidney disease.  You can fund free kidney health checks and provide education sessions to doctors and nurses to increase awareness of risk factors to increase early diagnosis.    We can extend the life of an ailing kidney by catching the decline early.  This is chance to live healthier for longer. Your donation will fund research into the kidney disease, it's treatment and cure.  Your support will educate health professionals on how to manage kidneys disease to prolong healthy living.   And your donation will help support kidney patients and their families through our 0800 helpline, our support of regional support groups and our local seminars on kidney health.

Your donation will help us to provide free kidney health checks to identify kidney problems early.  Early diagnosis is the gift of time.  Time to retain existing kidney function.   It will also help us to provide education sessions for doctor and nurses on the risk factors of kidney disease and managing kidney patients to improve outcomes.   Your donation will help someone to live a longer and stay healthier for longer.  In short you are helping save lives.

Kidney Health New Zealand does not receive and Government support we rely on donations and bequests to fund our work, so we need the support of generous donors, grant funding bodies and sponsors to help us achieve our goal of better kidney health for all New Zealanders.  There are several ways you can support our organisation, not all of them involve giving cash donations, as running a local fundraising campaign or becoming a Kidney health advocate is a great way to support better kidney health for all New Zealanders.

Corporate social responsibility

Looking to fulfill your corporate social responsibility goals?  A partnership with KHNZ could be the answer! Kidney disease affects over 400,000 New Zealanders. Yet as little as 1 in 10 people know they have it.  Our goal is to help increase the number of people who are tested for kidney disease to increase early diagnosis to give the opportunity to retain kidney function to avoid further invasive treatments.   1 in 10 people have some form of kidney disease.  These are your people – your staff, your customers and your community stakeholders. We invite you to be part of New Zealand’s journey towards better kidney health.
