event sponsorship

Help guarantee the success of the National Kidney Foundation of Illinois' fundraising and educational events. Sign up to be an event sponsor, and make a public stand against kidney disease.

When you sponsor a National Kidney Foundation of Illinois event, you play a crucial role in furthering research, and in supplying services to patients and families affected by kidney disease.  


The support of sponsors like you allows us to bring communities together, enlist new allies into the fight against kidney disease, and funnel much-needed resources into the laboratories of our young investigators. Your generosity affects real change, and encourages dedicated researchers to break new ground in the search for early detection.  

Commit to sponsoring an event today, and help the patients of tomorrow. To build a custom package that best suits your needs, please contact our Development Manager Wesley Bauer for assistance.
