FIGHTING FOR POSSIBLE ON BEHALF OF FAMILIES DEALING WITH THE IMPOSSIBLE

Our Mission

We provide an opportunity to TAKE PART in funding research that gives hope for a cure to families and children battling rare pediatric diseases.

Join our family and Take Part in our fight for possible for kids and families all over the world.

Often times, groundbreaking research is taking off with small teams all over the world that could literally save lives. However, most times this research lacks the funding it needs and ends up dying off or is tabled for a later date due to this lack. Take Part Foundation exists to help make sure this research remains funded through completion so that these small research teams can prove what they need to and apply for the "big time" funding.  When you donate here and TAKE PART in these groundbreaking smaller research projects, you TAKE PART in a possible life saving cure or therapy for rare pediatric diseases all over the world. 

Our Founders

Matt and Maria Granados are the parents of 4-year-old Natalie, who suffers from a genetic disorder called PYROXD-1. They are a family of faith—and a family of action. They’re tired of waiting for answers that likely will not come in time to save their daughter. They’ve been called to create the Take Part Foundation to fund research that can help find answers for Natalie and others like her.

Board of Advisors

Every project that is funded by the Take Part Foundation is evaluated by our board of advisors which ensures thoughtful oversight.  Our distribution of funds is based on a thorough review of the project plan, validity of the theory and the likelihood that the findings will help accelerate medical advances more children can live to see a solution for their fight.

Our Partners

Take Part Foundation does not have any formal partnerships beyond our current projects. However, we find that most of the children and families we support have come to us through the National Organization of Rare Diseases or the Undiagnosed Disease Network .  Because we serve children who are stuck between diagnosis and prognosis, we are a great landing place for anyone trying to find answers when science lags behind what’s needed for a cure to save lives.
