Donor Protection Program®

APKD covers the cost of any transplantation-related expenses, including lost wages from time off work, travel expenses to and from the transplant center, food, lodging and fuel expenses.

The Alliance for Paired Kidney Donation offers comprehensive insurance for all living donors against any complications related to their nephrectomy.

The gift of a living kidney gives new life to another. Non-directed donors will receive the assurance of knowing that should a family member need a kidney transplant in the future, they will be given priority placement and a guaranteed kidney from the APKD. That’s the APKD KidneyPledge™.

Lost wage reimbursement for up to 4 weeks with a max of $2,500 per week reimbursement

Travel, lodging, food & mileage reimbursement up to $4,500 for donors and their support person
