However, when you donate a car to the National Kidney Foundation (NKF) you make a huge difference for a lot of people. Established over 3 decades ago, Kidney Cars is one of the first and most trusted car donation programs in the country. Through car donations, the NKF raises money for education, research and life-saving medical support for individuals with kidney disease, including those at risk.
