Q: How are the funds Take It Away raises used?
A: Take it Away raises funds for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation (CFF). The CFF has done a wonderful job of educating the public, raising funds, and investing in life changing therapies and drugs.

Q: If Take it Away is raising funds for the CFF, why would I not just donate directly to them?
A: We encourage anyone who wants to make an impact in the lives of those with CF to donate to the CFF. Like we said, it is where all our funds go!

Simply said, we help your donations go further to help the CF community.
Q: Does Take it Away have any paid employees?
A: No. All of our employees and volunteers donate their time so that more of the funds raised can help the CF community.
