Ways to Volunteer with the National Kidney Foundation of Michigan
The National Kidney Foundation of Michigan offers an array of prevention programs which cover all ages from school age to senior citizen. Our prevention programs are designed to address community challenges that lead to chronic illness by providing educational services and resources. Supporting our program initiatives range from program development/support to fitness instruction.
Throughout the year we are in need of volunteers to help with some of our daily business efforts such as: answer the phones, stuff envelopes, organize office literature, perform data entry.
Assisting the development department in fundraising and supporting various events such as the Kidney Ball, Kidney Walks, Kidney Runs, golf outings, wine tasting and more. This is a great way to interact with donors, businesses and community leaders all while having fun.
Peer Mentors are Chronic Kidney Disease patients or have a lot of knowledge and/or experience with CKD. The Peer Mentor program is designed to support fellow patients by listening, problem solving, empowering and being a source of information about CKD.
Communicating with the State of Michigan’s leaders by advocating for their support of the Foundation’s efforts in maintaining state funded programs to prevent and manage diabetes and kidney disease.
Assist the NKFM in it’s efforts to connect with other coalitions, communities, block clubs, neighborhood and faith based groups that could become a future potential partner.
