Offline Fundraising Questions

Yes. Not everyone is comfortable making a gift online so we encourage you to accept and mail in check donations. These donations need to be manually entered by the NKF team upon receipt.

To mail in your offline donations, please include an your personal information and the name of your fundraiser with each check. Place in an envelope and mail to:

National Kidney Foundation
c/o Team Kidney Fundraising Support
30 East 33rd Street, New York, NY 10016
Please do not mail cash to The National Kidney Foundation

If you receive cash donations, we highly recommend that you deposit the money and either make out a check or send a money order for that same amount. Be sure to fill out your offline pledge form and send it in with your check or money order so that we can issue tax receipts. You can also make a credit card donation to your page. In this case, we will not be able to track the individual names of your donors, and therefore, we can’t issue tax receipts. 
Yes! Matching gifts are a great way to increase donations. Click here to see if your company will match employee contributions. Encourage your donors to do the same.

Many employers sponsor matching gift programs and will match donations made by their employees. If your employer has this program, check with your HR department for your company's matching gift application, fill it out, and turn it in to us with your donation. We’ll take care of the rest. Once your matching gift has been sent in and processed, you will receive an email.
