About Us

The National Kidney Foundation of Louisiana is the major statewide voluntary non-profit health organization dedicated to preventing kidney and urinary tract diseases, improving the health and well-being of individuals affected by these diseases and increasing the availability of all organs for transplantation.

The NKFL provides vital patient and community services, conducts extensive public and professional education, advocates for patients through legislative action, and supports kidney research to identify new treatments.

The NKFL relies on individual and corporate donations, business partnerships, foundation and government grants and revenue from special events.  More than 81 cents of each dollar donated to the NKFL goes directly to support its programs and services.
