The Epilepsy Foundation is on a mission to END EPILEPSY® and the many challenges of living with seizures.

Give 26 logo


1 in 26 people living in the United States will develop epilepsy during their lifetime. In fact, you probably know someone who has epilepsy today. If not, you know someone who will develop it in the future. It might be your daughter, your father, your grandchild, your best friend. It might even be you. Epilepsy can affect anyone with a brain and seizures can strike at any time, without warning or reason.

We think 1 in 26 is a big number. But you know what's not a big number?


Join our END EPILEPSY movement by making a small, one-time donation of just $26 and displaying your Give 26 to END EPILEPSY magnet on your car, at work or at home or wear your Give 26 to END EPILEPSY face mask* to let everyone know you're in this fight with us. Let everyone know that you're fighting to raise awareness of epilepsy, support people with epilepsy, and provide the critical funds to END this devastating disease.

  • 10 people giving $26 funds the 24/7 Epilepsy Helpline for a day
  • 100 people giving $26 funds bereavement services after SUDEP (Sudden Unexpected Death in Epilepsy)
  • 1000 people giving $26 funds a Seizure Safe Summer Camp for kids living with epilepsy
  • 100,000 people giving $26 funds making 26,000 classrooms Seizure Safe
  • 1,000,000 people giving $26 funds bringing a cure for epilepsy to market
We're on a mission to END EPILEPSY

END EPILEPSY starts with YOU taking action — donating $26 and spreading awareness

Together, we can do this. Until we find cures, we can END epilepsy stigma and discrimination. We can END treatment delays. We can END misdiagnosis. We can END the isolation and depression associated with epilepsy. We can END the lack of epilepsy specialists and access to care. We can END SUDEP – Sudden Unexpected Death in Epilepsy.
