Do you own stock or mutual fund shares that have increased in value? Donating securities to the Epilepsy Foundation is a way to help us move closer to improving the lives of those living with epilepsy and ultimately finding a cure. Giving appreciated assets is one of the most tax-efficient ways to make charitable donations. If you transfer the shares before December 31st, you may claim the charitable deduction in the same year.

Make an Impact! A bequest from a will or a living trust lets you make a gift of any size to the Epilepsy Foundation. When making an estate gift, you allow us to invest in new endeavors to support those living with epilepsy and help to ensure the Foundation is here for decades to come. By doing so you are able to receive a current income tax deduction and reduce your potential estate taxes in the future. For more information and to discuss your options, please contact us at (800) 213-5821.
You Can Double the Impact of Your Gift! Many corporations have matching gift programs and will match your donation to accredited charitable organizations such as the Epilepsy Foundation. It's an easy way to double or even triple the impact of your personal contribution to find a cure and overcome the challenges created by epilepsy. Ask your employer if they participate in a matching gift program and complete the necessary paperwork to have your gift matched. For more information, please contact us at (800) 213-5821.
