TAKEDA: An extraordinary investment in better health and a brighter future
In 2020, SeriousFun kicked off a new five-year, $9M+ partnership with global biopharmaceutical leader Takeda Pharmaceutical Company Limited. As part of Takeda’s esteemed Global Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) program, the partnership aims to create sustainable impacts by addressing global health issues through innovative and enduring strategies.
This partnership is reflective of both the impact that SeriousFun camps and programs have had over the last 30+ years as well as our focus on lasting impact far into the future. With Takeda’s support, SeriousFun Children’s Network will grow existing residential camp, family, and outreach programs, and pursue the development of new programs designed to broaden our collective reach and impact. Programs serving more diverse and rare medical conditions, those serving older campers and young adults, and virtual programs are all part of the approach to reaching campers and families in new and intentional ways.
The Takeda partnership will also go far in helping meet the ever-growing needs of our campers and families, as well as camp staff and volunteers. Through important research and evaluation initiatives, conferences and trainings, translation and communications support, quality assessment and improvement measures, and building medical capacity we’ll be able to ensure that our camps continue innovating and meeting the highest standards in serving children with serious illness and their families.
We are overjoyed and grateful to be joining Takeda in its unyielding commitment to better health for people and a brighter future for the world.
