How Your Support Helps
With over 250,000 people living with epilepsy in this country, Epilepsy Action is leading the way in ensuring those affected have the skills and knowledge to live the very best life possible. Even though epilepsy affects so many, we receive only a very small percentage of funding from the government. It is a devastating condition with widespread effects but remains woefully underfunded and under-researched.
As the leading and oldest provider of epilepsy services nationwide, we focus on improving self-management skills, increasing wider public understanding of this devastating condition, and are at the forefront of partnering and funding research into interventions and treatments.
By partnering with us, your company can be part of opening more eyes to this ‘forgotten’ disease and ensuring that those with epilepsy are able to live meaningful and independent lives, free of stigma and misunderstanding.
Workplace giving allows employees to make regular pre-tax donations to charity. You will enjoy an immediate tax benefit whilst helping make a difference to the lives of those living with epilepsy. This type of donation provides us with long-term stable income to help us plan for the future.

Many employers choose to match employee donations or fundraising efforts to help even more people with epilepsy receive crucial services. It’s also a great way to foster employee engagement and morale.
If you are fundraising for us be sure to ask your HR or finance teams about it!
Fundraising is always more enjoyable together, and when you can involve your employees, clients or stakeholders it’s a positive and proven way to build a community and relationships.
Your event could be anything from a morning tea to a fundraising dinner or getting a team together to take on a run or charity challenge.
It may be in honour of someone important in your organisation, a milestone for your company, or just a chance to do something positive in the community.
Donation of goods or services
There are many things we need and gratefully receive from companies to help us better provide our services. We appreciate donations of products like cars, holidays or artworks that we can use as part of raffles or auctions, or vouchers redeemable for your goods and services to help engage supporters. We also welcome the pro bono services of professionals, such as legal assistance, design expertise or printing services.
Donation of profits
As public desire for corporate social responsibility grows, donating a percentage of company profits is a great way to support Australians with epilepsy while also creating a positive brand association. You may like to commit to a long-term partnership, or donate a percentage of funds for a specific day, week or month in the year. Even a small percentage means a great deal to us and will go a long way towards helping those who need it.
