The mission of the Epilepsy Foundation is: to lead the fight to overcome the challenges of living with epilepsy and to accelerate therapies to stop seizures, find cures, and save lives.

Your donation ensures we continue to provide help and hope to the 3.4 million people living with epilepsy in the U.S. – and their families.


The Epilepsy Foundation is committed to people with epilepsy, their family members, and caregivers. Your donation helps us advocate for funding for epilepsy programs, research, and a cure; to policies that promote research and innovation; to improving access to and coverage of quality care and essential services; and to the protection of the rights of individuals with disabilities. Your generous gift allows us to engage federal and state governments to make a difference for people living with epilepsy and their families.
