Important Notice

You may have heard that Canada Post and the Canadian Union of Postal Workers (CUPW) are currently in contract negotiations, resulting in a disruption of mail service and delivery in certain parts of the country. Please don’t let this prevent you from supporting people living with kidney disease since your caring donations bring hope and empowerment to so many families.

You can call our helpful staff at 1-888-505-4556 to make a gift by credit card over the phone. Alternatively, you can make your donation online at kidney.ca/give. Thank you for your commitment to reducing the burden of kidney disease!
