Fundraising & Incentives

The fight to END EPILEPSY starts with you. With more than 3.4 million suffering in the U.S., each and every dollar raised at the Walk to END EPILEPSY® helps us lead the fight to overcome the challenges of living with epilepsy and to accelerate therapies to stop seizures, find cures, and save lives.

Let's get started! Follow these steps to get the most out of your online fundraising efforts: 

  • Kick start your fundraising today and make a self-donation. Show your donors you are passionate about the cause.
  • Tell your story! Customize your personal fundraising page with why you walk.
  • Send emails from your Participant Center (already written for you!) to friends, family and co-workers, asking them to support you in your fundraising efforts. You can also host a work bake sale, a garage sale or a game night to raise funds and awareness.
  • Use the Create a Facebook Fundraiser application available through your Participant Center.

For more tips and tools to fundraise, please review the Resources in your Participant Center as well as this Fundraising Toolkit!


Individuals who raise $50 or more earn a commemorative Walk to END EPILEPSY T-shirt. Individuals living with epilepsy also receive a separate T-shirt, regardless of how much they've fundraised.

Matching Gifts

Your donations can go even further with a matching gift! Many employers offer programs to match charitable contributions made by their employees. These "matching gifts" are an opportunity to double or possibly triple your donation to Walk to END EPILEPSY and increase funding for the care, support and research efforts of the Epilepsy Foundation.

If you are not sure if you qualify for a matching gift, please reach out to your HR department or leadership team to gather more information.
