Who We Are?
The Organizations Board of Directors is composed of highly educated Ph.Ds. and M.D.s who have specific credentials and are qualified to evaluate research proposals and, based on the scientific evaluation of the research area of the proposals, determine which research studies to fund. All board members have more than 20 years of drug development experience in the manufacturing, nonclinical and clinical areas.
- We help with strategies for druggability, manufacturing, nonclinical proof of concept and toxicity studies, clinical design, and regulatory pathway.
- We provide a free research fund to help you move faster.
- We will work with you to achieve ultimate successful rare disease treatment.
The Organization may fund strong research labs overseas, in Europe and or Asia, if there are studies on rare diseases conducted abroad. There will be no relationship between the Organization and the foreign recipient except the shared desire to support the shared mission. No foreign organization will accept earmarked contributions.
The Organization will make grants to other organizations that conduct research into causes, cures, and treatments of rare children’s diseases. The recipient organizations will be required to submit a detailed proposal about their research study. The Organizations Board will review the proposal and determine whether to fund it. The recipient organization will have to submit progress reports and a written accounting to the Organization as to what, where, and how the granted funds were utilized.
Funding will come from fundraising efforts including personal solicitations from the board members to individuals in the medical profession, private foundations, public charities as well as fundraising events.
Each submission from a recipient will include an acknowledgment that the Organization has the authority to stop, withhold, and recover any funds provided if the recipient organization is deficient in demonstrating that all funds are used properly, and in a manner consistent with the purpose and intent of the funding. If the funds are misused, or appear to be misused, the recipient organization will be required to make restitution of any misused funds and must agree to this as a condition of the grant. Regular reports will be required for all funded programs.
Progress reports and final reports will include specific detailed explanations as to what the organization accomplished with the funds. In addition, the Organization may conduct site visits on future visits to verify that the funds are being used for its stated purposes.
