Who we are.
The Northeast Kidney Foundation is a voluntary health organization dedicated to preventing kidney disease and enhancing the lives of all those affected.
Formed in 1972 as a philanthropic gift of Edwin and Rhoda Sperber, the Foundation provides services to patients, family members, the general public, and clinical and academic professionals throughout the Northeast.
The mission of the Northeast Kidney Foundation is to improve the quality of life of those affected by kidney disease and related conditions by early identification, intervention, and prevention; to promote organ donation; and to empower those we serve to be an effective voice for better healthcare at the local, state and federal levels.
