How We Use Donations
The Epilepsy Foundation is the national charitable organization committed to a better world for people living with epilepsy. Through research, education, advocacy and services, we aim to prevent, control and cure epilepsy, and to ensure a positive quality of life for everyone living with epilepsy.
We use your donation to empower people with epilepsy and their families; to improve epilepsy prevention and treatment; to increase public awareness; and reduce discrimination and stigma.
We use your donation to support clinical and behavioral research. And we help everyone touched by seizures access accurate and current information, and connect with support networks to ease the burden of living with epilepsy. Check out our most recent contribution from the Newport Foundation.
We use your donation to advocate in Congress, in the courts, in state legislatures and regulatory bodies for access to health care, protection of civil rights, job training, social security and special education services.
We transform people's lives every day and we need your help.
Meet just a few of the special people your donation will help.
Here are just some of the ways we'll use your donation to make a positive difference in someone's life:
Your donations helped us play a key role in the passage of the American with Disabilities Act Amendments Act of 2008 so that now nearly 3 million people living with epilepsy are protected from workplace discrimination.
Your donations enabled us to fund promising studies that are moving into the clinical trial stage and could radically improve life for millions who live with epilepsy.
Your donations supported the enhancement of our online eCommunities where those impacted by epilepsy can communicate with others, and find support from friends, experts and more.This is just a small list of what we've accomplished this year and it is your donations that allow us to touch the lives that we do. Help us continue to touch even more lives with your generous donation today. Thank you!
