What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

It is a fact that chronic diseases and conditions are among the most common, costly, and preventable of all health problems, yet 86% of the nation’s $2.7 trillion annual health care expenditures are for people with chronic and mental health conditions. (www.cdc.gov) The incidence of CKD is increasing most rapidly in people ages 55 and older and Medicare spending for beneficiaries ages 65 and older who have CKD exceeds $50 billion. (nephrologynews.com) Mobilizing TKF’s Kidney C.A.R.E. can stem these rising costs and improve health outcomes of seniors who may be unaware they have kidney disease by providing awareness, screening, and access to renal professionals. Yet as effective as this program is in fighting the battle against the escalation of CKD, it is only effective if individuals participate in the screenings. TKF’s priority is to reach populations who are at-risk for developing this disease and who may face geographic, economic, cultural, or accessibility barriers.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

The mission of the Texas Kidney Foundation (TKF) is to improve the health and well-being of people at risk or affected by kidney disease, through education, prevention and support, and increasing organ donation and transplantation. Our vision is to become a positive regional collaborative force in bringing kidney awareness, education, and prevention resources to a community disproportionately hit by this devastating disease.

Established in 2011, TKF was created to provide early detection, education, support and resources to fill a gap in services due to the closure of the San Antonio division of the National Kidney Foundation. Community leaders, along with the medical community, moved quickly to establish patient services. TKF from the onset has been dedicated to meeting local and statewide needs of the kidney and transplant communities. We place special emphasis on San Antonio and its surrounding communities as well as South Texas as NIH studies indicate these areas are heavily impacted by kidney related diseases.


TKF, the leading non-profit provider of free screenings in Texas, is a direct resource for the prevention and education of all forms of kidney disease. Serving 250,000+ clients since our inception, our strategic goals are to: 1) arm individuals with tools and knowledge to fight the long-term & devastating effects of kidney disease; 2) promote kidney health in the community through data driven outcomes & targeted messaging; 3) create and nurture kidney awareness and prevention programs to maximize reach and results; and 4) collaborate for community impact to reverse the escalation of Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD).

Because early detection and education can delay or prevent the progression of CKD. Testing coupled with our behavioral health-based continuum of care is an effective strategy for positive health outcomes.

Armed with three ways to identify chronic kidney disease we are equipped to make a dent in the states CKD population.
We offer drive up testing
No contact mail out testing
A $50 wellness check with a medical professional and includes lab work that tests for 35 unique markers. We have a comprehensive plan that is designed to meet the healthcare needs of the under-served population of our state.

We have identified chronic kidney disease in 56 percent of the people we screen. We have developed a continuum of care that includes a lifestyle coach and a dietitian who will assist the entire family in making a healthy change that will mitigate the disease and maintain quality of life.
While TKF has screened more than 25,000 individuals since 2013, TKF still must reach many more of our most vulnerable residents who need these early identification free screenings. We continue to work with senior centers and community organizations throughout the state of Texas.
