About Your Donations

UC_panel.jpgItem by item, your donated items add up to make a huge impact in the lives of people with seizures!  Since 1997, our used clothing operation has provided over $8.4 million to fund programs and services for the 60,000 people with epilepsy in our community. Your donations fund nearly half our annual program budget and help people with epilepsy realize their full potential. 


Over 30 EFMN employees drive the trucks to pick up your items, service neighborhood drop off donation bins and answer the phone when you call.


We deliver your donated goods to Savers stores (a for-profit thrift company) and are paid a competitive price for the items we deliver in bulk. Each week we deliver more than 150,000 pounds of goods!

The Foundation regularly negotiates our contract with Savers (or other buyers) to ensure we receive a fixed price for your donated items. EFMN is one of 140 charities nationwide that works with Savers.


We encourage you to do your homework to ensure your donation is doing as much good as possible in our community. We are confident that our used clothing collection services are among the most cost-effective and efficient in the country.  Our services are critical to people and families impacted by epilepsy — it's important to both donors and us that we get the most out of your donation.
