Support Us

Northern Counties Kidney Research Fund is funded entirely by voluntary donations and every contribution makes an impact on our work. We have no paid administrators or fundraisers.

There are many ways that you can support NCKRF:


Single or regular donations can be made to the NCKRF with a bankers order form. If you are a taxpayer in the UK please consider signing a Gift Aid declaration form which will cover any future donations that you give to the NCKRF. This will allow the NCKRF to reclaim 25% at no extra cost to you.Both of these documents can be downloaded below.

Alternatively you can donate via JustGiving 

Tribute funds

If you have recently lost someone close to you and would like to consider making a donation instead of sending funeral flowers please contact us or do so via the funeral directors. (Please note that most funeral directors do not send donations to charities immediately so it may be some time before we confirm your donations have been received and are able to thank you.)

Making a gift in your will

You can use your solicitor, your bank or a will writing company.

Making or changing your will

All gifts you leave to charity in your will are free from inheritance tax. These gifts can be a specific amount or residuary, that is what remains in your estate after all taxes, bills, debts and specific gifts have been made.

  • Draw up a list of your assets and anything you owe.
  • Decide who you would like to receive a gift in your will and what you would like them to receive
  • Decide who you would like to be your executors
  • Contact a solicitor
  • Keep your will safe
