Philanthropy and charitable trusts
Generous support from philanthropists, charitable trusts and foundations has helped us make significant breakthroughs in kidney research, such as new advances in transplant medicine which are making more kidney transplants possible.
Together, we can make rapid change towards a world where lives aren’t limited by kidney disease. We want to accelerate research and lead transformation in kidney health.
We can’t end kidney disease on our own. We want to collaborate and build partnerships to make a difference for people living with kidney disease.
Let’s talk how we could work together with you to free lives from kidney disease.
The David Thompson Fellowships
Every year we invest in education and research to ensure that we fund the most impactful research into kidney disease and support the education and development of our future kidney research leaders.
Thanks to the incredible support from The Thompson Family Charitable Trust we have launched The David Thompson Fellowship Award in memory of David Thompson CBE who sadly died from renal failure at the age of 84. David was an an inspirational businessman, philanthropist and bloodstock owner and breeder.
The David Thompson Fellowship Award allows us to increase the number of Fellowships we fund so we can increase our commitment to education, find a cure for kidney disease sooner and develop our future kidney research leaders.
Thank you to The Thompson Family Charitable Trust for their generous support which will give hope to kidney patients and their families.
