Estate Giving

Give Estate

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.

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.
