Some ways to support Epilepsy Foundation of Southeast Tennessee

CFC # 99531

Epilepsy Foundation of Southeast Tennessee is locally funded, and pays dues to participate in the National affiliate program. We rely on state funding, private donations, fundraisers, and sponsorship's in order to continue to offer free resources to the 1 in 100 affected by epilepsy, and to educate the community in our 13 counties served.

"Sponsor A Need" Program

Join forces with other supporters to sponsor specific items that clients need, and we are unable to provide.  Give a little, or give a lot.  Each piece helps.  

*Neurologist VisitsVisits to a neurologist are a crucial part of the process for someone in their fight against epilepsy.  These visits are $300 on average.  

*Prescription Drug Assistance -  Epilepsy Medications can range from $25/mo (generic) up to $1400/mo (name brand), with or without insurance.  Some individuals can only take the name brand.  

*Other Client Needs - These could include epilepsy Educational Materials, Case Management Resources, etc.

*Children's Coloring Book -  We are raising $10,000 to produce 10,000 "A Day In The Life" coloring books. The book features two Chattanooga-area children (pictured below); one boy who is 9 and has epilepsy, and one girl who is 12 and helps care for her mother who has epilepsy. These coloring books will be given out during epilepsy educational programs that we present at schools throughout Southeast Tennessee and Northwest Georgia.

Please include contact information for the family whom we should send a note regarding your donation. We will not disclose the amount of your gift, but we do let them know your name and address so they can send you a thank you note.
