$15,000 Goal

We envision a world where no one journeys through epilepsy alone.
You can join us.

1 in 10 people will experience a seizure in their lifetime, impacting not only their physical health and wellbeing, but their mental health, their access to education and employment, and their ability to do the things they love with friends and family. Chances are, one of them is someone you know.

Of the 55,000+ Minnesotans living with epilepsy, only two-thirds have control of their seizures. Access to quality care, food and housing security, and a supportive community are critical to living a safe, connected, and empowered life with seizures.

That's the role you play with the Epilepsy Foundation of Minnesota. Your gift to EFMN

  • Trains schools, businesses, public safety and health services, and community organizations across the state in seizure recognition and response
  • Provides one-on-one information and referral services to newly diagnosed individuals and people navigating new territory on their epilepsy journey
  • Builds networks of support so that no one is alone on their journey
