                                                          The National Kidney Foundation of the National Capital
                                                          Area, Inc., a major voluntary health organization, seeks
                                                          to prevent kidney and urinary tract diseases, improve the
                                                          health and wellbeing of individuals and families affected
                                                          by these diseases, and increase the availability of all organs
                                                          for transplantation.

                                                          Who We are
                                                          Since its inception in 1956, The National Kidney Foundation of the National
                                                          Capital Area has made great strides in the quest to understand, prevent,
                                                          and treat diseases of the kidney and urinary tract. These diseases currently
                                                          affect more than 26 million Americans, with millions more at risk. One of
                                                          our most significant goals is to detect kidney disease early, or prevent its
                                                          onset entirely. For those patients who already have the disease, we are
                                                          working to ensure they receive quality care and have the opportunity to
                                                          live their lives to the fullest. For those patients on the transplant waiting
                                                          list, we are working to increase the pool of potential donors through
                                                          innovative public awareness programs.

                                                          Our work is funded through donations and grants from individuals,
                                                          corporations, foundations, government, the United Way, and Combined
                                                          Federal Campaigns. These funds advance our ongoing work in research,
                                                          patient services, public and professional education, and organ donation

                                                          6 Direct Service Areas, and 13 Divisions.

Dear Friends,
As I reflect upon my year as Chairman of the Board, I am pleased to report that we have
continued to build upon the successes of the last few years, and positioned the Foundation to
achieve even greater success in the future.
   Over the past year, the Foundation has significantly improved its financial position. Several
years ago we determined it was important to diversify our income streams and we are now
beginning to reap the rewards of that strategy. As a result, FY2007 saw an increase of $250,000
in planned giving, and Board giving grew by $98,000 – a 33% increase from the previous year,
both of which were identified as opportunities to reduce our dependence on special events.
   Notwithstanding these successes, we are still very dependent on our special events, and
we had a great year. For the 6th consecutive year, the Kidney Ball raised more than $1 million.
Thanks in large part to matching funds from the Ronald D. Paul Companies, the 2006 Kidney
Walk was the most successful Walk in affiliate history. The DC Chili Cook-Off sold out for the first
time in the event’s history – and raised more than $750,000.
   More importantly from my perspective is what we did with all that money. We take great
pride in making the most our of every donation – in fact, 83 cents out of every dollar goes to
programs and services, up from 78 cents two years ago, which far exceeds industry standards.
In our Medical and Community Programs, we rolled out the Knock Out Kidney Disease initiative
in the District and have already made a significant impact on the lives of DC residents.               We take great pride
   Our Research Program funded $120,000 in local research at area medical schools as well
as contributing significantly to the National Research Program. And all of our professional            in making the
development and patient services programs enjoyed great success this year.
                                                                                                       most out of every
  We also made great strides in Public Awareness and Education. In the pages of this report,
you will learn more about NKF’s success at significantly raising awareness about kidney disease        donation – in fact,
and organ donation through media campaigns, Speakers Bureau appearances, health fairs,
                                                                                                       83 cents out of
and public service announcements. Securing the involvement of three professional athletes
– basketball superstar Alonzo Mourning, boxing legend Sugar Ray Leonard, and Redskins                  every dollar goes
player Randy Thomas – attracted the attention of millions of sports fans in our community and
helped to convey important information about kidney disease prevention and treatment.
                                                                                                       to programs and
   In summary, it was a banner year. I would like to congratulate the NKF staff, volunteers,           services.
                                and supporters for your outstanding efforts. Every year your
                                contributions – of your time, talents, and money – help to
                                ensure a brighter future for thousands of kidney patients in our
                                region, and thousands more people who never had to become
                                kidney patients thanks to the National Kidney Foundation’s
                                prevention programs. Thank you on their behalf.

   4 President’s Message

                                         Dear Friends,
                                         As we reflect on 2007, it was certainly a year of transition and change. Two years ago we started on
                                         the course of our ambitious long-range plan for 2007-2009 and I am happy to report that this year we
                                         began to see the effects of that plan in our day-to-day operations.
                                           Rich McKinless from KPMG, Board Treasurer, chaired the Long Range Planning Committee and at
                                         the annual meeting in September 2006, the 2007-09 plan was finalized. It was then presented at the
                                         Annual Leadership Retreat in January 2007 and approved by the Board of Directors in February 2007.
                                         Rich, as chairman of the Long Range Planning Committee, had the insight to look ahead and we, as a
                                         board, committee, and volunteer organization, had the wisdom to implement the plan.
                                           Most notably, the National Kidney Foundation of the National Capital Area (NKF/NCA) sought and
                                         received a $250,000 grant from the Government of the District of Columbia for funding of our Knock
       The District of                   Out Kidney Disease (KOKD) program. This represented the first time that government funds have
Columbia funding our                     supported our prevention activities. The funding allowed us to leverage a grant from Amgen, Inc. to
                                         broadcast our message to a wide audience, greatly expanding our public education efforts. We have
   Knock Out Kidney                      implemented a full-fledged attack on kidney disease in District Wards 4 through 8 for individuals who

       8 Public Awareness

          public awareness
          Chronic kidney disease (CKD) in the United States has too long been overlooked and
          underestimated. Not only is it the 9th leading cause of death in this country, but its
          leading cause—diabetes—ranks #6. Futher, the presence of kidney disease increases the
          risk of heart attacks (#1) and strokes (#3). Other stats to consider:
          •  Twenty-six million Americans have CKD and most don’t even know it.
          •  Millions more are at risk but they are unaware of the risk factors…diabetes,
            hypertension, or family history of CKD.
          •  African Americans, Hispanics, Pacific Islanders, Native Americans, and seniors are at
            increased risk.
          •  Three simple tests can detect CKD.
          •  Early intervention can slow or prevent the progression to kidney failure; at kidney
            failure, a person needs dialysis or a transplant to live.

          Public awareness and education are crucial elements to the success of the Foundation’s
          campaign to Knock Out Kidney Disease. With the unveiling of the KOKD program in the

Community outreach
An important responsibility of being a local health organization is to reach out to the
community at large, and to spread our message about kidney disease and organ donation.
Below are a few ways the NKF/NCA got involved in our neighborhoods in FY07.

Battle of the Boulevard
In May, the NKF/NCA participated in the inaugural running of the Battle of the Boulevard
10K presented by Pacers Running Stores. The Farley family, who owns and operates
the growing chain of Northern Virginia stores, chose the NKF/NCA as the event’s main
beneficiary. Basketball Hall of Fame member and Head Basketball Coach at DeMatha High
School, Morgan Wootten, and son Joe Wootten were spokespeople for the race. Wootten
                                                                                           Coach JoeWootten, Chris Farley Sr., and
Sr. received a kidney from his son, and both are committed to educating the public about
                                                                                           Chris Farley Jr. at the Inaugural Battle of
organ donation. At the NKF/NCA’s Annual Meeting & Reception, Pacers presented an $8,000
                                                                                           the Boulevard in Arlington,Virginia. The

public awareness partnerships with pro Sports Teams
In FY07, NKF/NCA joined forces with both the Washington Capitals and Washington Mystics to disseminate information to
mass audiences. Staff and volunteers set up an NKF booth on the concourse to distribute information about kidney disease,
promote organ donation, and hand out giveaways to eager fans. Through the partnerships, NKF offers specially priced tickets
to its supporters and the opportunity to sponsor young kidney patients to attend games on “Kidney Nights.”

Speakers Bureau & Community health Fairs
In FY07, the NKF/NCA’s Speakers Bureau addressed the epidemic of kidney disease and the shortage of organ donors
by advocating and educating at numerous engagements. Members who include medical professionals, patients, family
members, and active NKF/NCA volunteers, participated in:

• Legislative Receptions                                                    • School Health Courses
• NKF Community Events & Fundraisers                                        • Church & Community Centers
• United Way/CFC/CHC Charity Designation Events                             • Corporate “Lunch & Learn” Events
• One-On-One Counseling with Patients or Potential Organ Donors             • Media Interviews
Each year, NKF/NCA participates in health fairs hosted by a vast array of organizations and businesses. From the Department
of Labor’s Women’s Health Fair to the African American Festival on Zoo Day to a health fair at Fannie Mae, the NKF/NCA
spread the word about kidney disease and prevention at dozens of health fairs in FY2007.

                                                                                                                 2007 Annual Report

                                                       prevalence in the Washington area. Educating local physicians
                                                       is a component of the NKF/NCA’s greater prevention
                                                       campaign, the Knock Out Kidney Disease (KOKD) initiative.

Transplant Symposium
Continuing in its education efforts, NKF/NCA hosted the 3rd Annual Transplant Symposium for 60 DC area
nephrologists, transplant surgeons and other medical and health professionals. Guest speakers included physicians
Robert Gaston, Arjang Djamali, and Alan Wilkinson, who covered topics including outcomes of solid organ
transplantation in the US and management of risk factors for ischemic heart disease after transplantation.

Bone Care Conference
The NKF/NCA hosted its 3rd Annual Bone Care Conference in Washington with the theme, “A Team Approach to
Managing Bone Disease in CKD Stage 5.” The conference was attended by more than 70 people including renal
dietitians, social workers, and dialysis technicians. Participants learned about bone disease in CKD, recommendations
according to the K/DOQI Clinical Practice
Guidelines for Bone Metabolism and Disease, and
current management therapies.

Fellows Forum
The 16th Annual Fellows Research Forum
provided an arena for DC area graduate and
post-graduate trainees to showcase their
research in the fields of kidney disease and
related topics. The NKF/NCA hosts the Forum
to encourage local students to share their work
and develop relationships with other nephrology
and research professionals. In FY07, the Fellows
Forum was abuzz with both novice and veteran
professionals who presented research and
opened topics up for discussion.

  12 Organ Donation Initiatives

                         organ Donation initiatives
                         The most effective advocates for the power of organ donation are the people
                         whose lives have been profoundly affected. Through the NKF Speakers Bureau/
                         Patient Advocates, and U.S. Transplant Games, individuals who have been given a
                         second chance at life—transplant recipients—spread the word about the life-
                         saving power of organ donation. NKF seeks to increase the availability of all organs
                         for transplantation – kidney, heart, lungs, pancreas – which provides a wealth of
                         diversity in its advocates. In addition, our living donors are eager to talk about how
                         their experience has not only saved the life of a loved one, but enriched their lifes
                         in unexpected ways.

                         paired kidney Donations
                         In 2007, the Charlie W. Norwood Living Organ Donation Act was passed by the
                         House and Senate (March and July, respectively). The Act was signed into law
                         by the President in December 2007, and is slated to save thousands of lives and
                         hundreds of millions of dollars. The Act makes paired kidney donations in the US
                         legal—a measure that will allow transplant programs to engage in this practice without fear of legality
                         issues that might have prevented these types of donations from taking place before.

                         A paired donation allows a patient with a willing but incompatible donor to receive a transplant from
                         another donor who is compatible. The incompatible donor’s organ will then be transplanted in another
                         patient. The legislation clarifies that paired kidney donations do not violate laws against trading organs
                         for compensation. A study published in the Journal of Transplantation projects a 14 percent increase in
                         the number of live kidney transplants performed each year due to the new legislation. Furthermore, it is
                         estimated to save Medicare $500 million over 10 years. The National Kidney Foundation was instrumental
                         in helping urge Congress to pass this bill.

                         NKF/NCA Speakers Bureau member Dr. Jimmy A. Light, Director of Transplantation at Washington Hospital
                         Center, performed a paired kidney donation in February coined a “life-saving wife swap” in which two
                         women donated to each other’s husbands (pictured above).

In 2004, Jackie was diagnosed with chronic kidney disease and began dialysis shortly
thereafter. For three years, Jackie was an inspiration to her daughter Hermoine—working,
singing, being active in her church—all the while going to dialysis three days a week for
3.5 hours a day. While Hermoine was eager to donate a kidney to her mother, she wasn’t a
match. But she didn’t stop there. She decided to do a “Kidney Swap,” that is, to anonymously
donate her kidney in order to place her mother at the top of the transplant list for her blood
type. After an early false alarm, the miracle came just before Christmas when Jackie received
a kidney in time for her 60th birthday.                                                                                   2007 Annual Report

instrumental in                       The National Kidney Foundation advocates for public policies that help prevent kidney disease and
                                      improve the lives and care of those impacted by the disease. Current legislative priorities from the
securing funding                      national perspective include:
from the DC                           •  Dialysis – Legislation in Congress would establish a Medicare educational benefit for patients with
                                      advanced kidney disease before they require dialysis or transplantation.
Government for the
Foundation’s KOKD
                                      •  Chronic Kidney Disease – NKF is calling on Congress to expand the Chronic Kidney Disease Control
                                      Program at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to support early detection and treatment
                                      among high-risk populations. Washington, DC is under consideration to serve as a test city.
                                      •  Transplantation and Organ Donation – To help close the gap that exists between the need for
                                      organs for transplantation and organ availability, NKF advocates for ways to increase the supply of
                                      organs for transplantation. Locally, the Fairfax County Commission on Organ and Tissue Donation
                                      and Transplantation passed HB2220 in Virginia, which provides an income tax deduction for un-
                                      reimbursed expenses paid by an organ and tissue donor that have not been taken as a medical
                                      deduction on the taxpayer’s federal income tax return.

                                      •  Medicare – As a critical source of health coverage for kidney disease patients, NKF works with
                                      Congress and the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services to ensure Medicare benefits meet the
                                      diverse needs of kidney patients.

                                      •  Immunosuppressive Drug Coverage – The National Kidney Foundation has long-advocated for
                                      allowing all ESRD transplant recipients to receive coverage of immunosuppressive drugs beyond the
                                      36 month limit through Medicare Part B.

     The National Kidney Foundation of the National Capital Area
     continues to keep expenses for Fundraising and Management &
     General acceptably low at 17.5% of the total.

     Fiscal year 2006/07 saw an impressive change in net income from the previous year. Net
     income over expenses was $222,036 compared to a loss of $7,273 from the year before.
     Most of this increase can be attributed to the receipt of a grant for $250,000 from the
     District of Columbia Department of Health. The Foundation also received a $300,000
     bequest in 2006/07. Special events continue to be very important bringing in 52% of total
     revenue. Overall, total support increased 21% over 2006.

     Total expenses increased 19.8% from 2006 to support the substantial growth primarily
     in our preventive screening program. The National Kidney Foundation of the National
     Capital Area continues to keep expenses for Fundraising and Management & General
     acceptably low at 17.5% of the total. Public Health education has become the primary
     area we are spending our program money. The Knock Out Kidney Disease screening
     program’s primary mission is to screen people who may be at risk for kidney disease and
     provide them with education to seek further treatment if needed.
