Make a Difference

Donating time and resources can help people affected by seizures and epilepsy

Every dollar of an Epilepsy Foundation donation brings the 60,000 people living with epilepsy in our community closer to realizing their full potential. Your gift directly funds the programs and services that provide information, resources, and support to the people we serve.

The consistent support of donors is what allows us to make an impact in the lives of others, as well as invest in research with the goal of developing new therapies. Thank you!

There are many unique ways to support the Epilepsy Foundation financially! You can:

  • Designate your gift to a specific program
  • Give in honor or memory of someone special
  • Make a legacy gift and reduce estate taxes passed on to heirs
  • Avoid capital gains taxes on donated stock that has appreciated in value
  • Receive an immediate charitable deduction on your federal income taxes when you itemize

If you have questions about giving, we’re happy to help! Please contact us at info@efmn.org or call 651.287.2302 with any questions about your Epilepsy Foundation donation.

Meet Paul

Paul considers himself lucky, despite having been diagnosed with epilepsy at five years old. In addition to using EFMN's programs and services, he came looking for ways to help those who weren't as fortunate as him.
