Fund our research through your legacy
We are driving pioneering research for the future. 150 years ago, epilepsy was regarded as a mental illness needing asylum care – often for a lifetime. Now we are on the verge of the most exciting and revolutionary era of research into identifying the causes of and treatments for epilepsy.
When will this happen?
Scientific research is a long haul and will take considerable investment.
But imagine for one moment if we could find treatments, and possibly even a functional cure, to ensure everyone overcomes epilepsy within the next two generations?
Each of us can make this possible through a gift in our Will – whether it is a modest sum of money or a small percentage of what you are worth.
Every gift can help lead to a new discovery. The effect of each gift will live on for the benefit of generations following in our footsteps, forever.
That is our dream and we hope it is yours too. Together we can overcome epilepsy.

If you don't yet have a Will, this advice can help you in the process of making one. If you already have a Will, you can find out how to update it to include a gift to Epilepsy Society.
