Epilepsy Foundation of Virginia
Epilepsy Foundation of Virginia Office
The Epilepsy Foundation of Virginia was established in 1978 to promote awareness about epilepsy, advocate for research to find a cure and provide assistance to those with the disorder. On an annual basis, we help educate around 10,000 consumers with epilepsy and their families and friends to live with epilepsy. In our annual surveys of consumer's main concerns the top priority is invariably promoting awareness. To this day, consumers alert us about the inappropriate reactions when someone has a seizure.
The Epilepsy Foundation of Virginia provides training sessions for professionals, families and colleagues. We also have public education programs with puppets for schools and talk shows on radio and television. Consumer services include one time medication assistance, transportation assistance, and general epilepsy-related emergencies. These services are exclusively for Virginians with epilepsy. The Epilepsy Foundation of Virginia is an independently incorporated statewide affiliate of the national Epilepsy Foundation.
The Epilepsy Foundation of Virginia is governed by a Board of Directors comprised of consumers, business men and women, and professionals with an interest in epilepsy. A Professional Advisory Board also assists Epilepsy Foundation of Virginia with legal and medical issues.
The Foundation is a nonprofit voluntary health organization exempt from federal income taxes under Section 501 (C) 3 of the Internal Revenue Code and qualifies for the maximum charitable contribution deduction by individual donors.
