What Epilepsy Action can achieve with your donation
Your gift will help protect vital services for people with epilepsy.
Together we are the thousands of people with epilepsy, their families, friends and those who work to support them.
Donate today and help the fight for a better, fairer future for all the people with epilepsy.
We won’t stop until everyone with epilepsy has the respect, fairness and understanding they deserve.
Your donation could help more people recognise a seizure and know how to help.
Your donation could give someone the knowledge and confidence to challenge discrimination.
Your donation could educate people about the challenges of living with epilepsy.
There are many ways to donate
Give through your wage
Donating through your salary (Payroll giving) is a simple, tax-effective way to donate to Epilepsy Action directly from your salary.
The scheme works by deducting your donation from your gross salary (before tax) – so every £1 you give will only cost you 80p (or 60p if you’re a higher rate tax payer). This means that your gift will go even further, supporting more people affected by epilepsy when they need it most.
You can donate as much as you like and you can stop your donation at any time.
Setting up a payroll giving scheme is an excellent way for your company to support the causes that your employees care about. You can also match donations to support your corporate and social responsibility programme.
To offer the scheme to your employees you need to be registered with a Payroll Giving Agency (PGA). Its free and simple to set up. To find out more visit the HMRC website.
Payroll giving is available to everyone who pays UK income tax and is employed by a UK organisation.
Leave a gift in your will
A gift in your will, no matter what size, could transform the lives of people with epilepsy for generations to come. It will bring an end to stigma, increase awareness and help people get the treatment they need to live a life free from seizures.
Other ways to give
Give in memory
Fundraising or giving a donation in memory is a fantastic way to make a difference in honour of someone special.
Whether at a service, through an event or on an anniversary, your support will help someone affected by epilepsy today.
