Giving Societies

Over the years, many individuals and corporations have provided very generous support to the National Kidney Foundation of Illinois. In an expression of recognition and sincere gratitude, we have created Giving Societies to highlight the philanthropy of this special group of donors. Please join us in thanking them for their time, expertise and financial support. Because of them and others with the same charitable spirit, the National Kidney Foundation of Illinois has been able to provide support to individuals throughout Illinois, grow our programs and services and lead the fight against kidney disease.
