Pennsylvania Transportation Program
Pennsylvania residents who meet eligibility requirements are reimbursed for a portion of the transportation costs associated with traveling to and from dialysis treatment three times a week. This program is run in collaboration with, and within the guidelines of, the Pennsylvania State Renal Disease Program.

Get Involved with NKF
If our scheduled fundraisers aren’t what you’re looking for, then create your own event to raise funds and hope with Team Kidney.
From celebrating transplant anniversaries, honoring a loved one, to bake sales and bowling tournaments, to pushing yourself with a 10K or E-Sports — the fundraising possibilities are endless.
For questions, contact our Development Manager, Jeana Hoffman, at firstname.lastname@example.org
In 2021 we passed the Living Donor Protection Act in the state of New Jersey and Pennsylvania. This bill will ensure that life, long-term care and disability insurers will not discriminate against living organ donors.
Thank you to all the volunteers, advocates, living donors and their families who made this happen!
