Many companies have workplace giving campaigns where a portion of your paycheck can be deducted in support of a charitable cause. Ask your HR department if your company has a workplace giving campaign and select the Epilepsy Foundation of Connecticut.
Many corporations also have matching gift programs and will match your donation to accredited charitable organizations such as the Epilepsy Foundation of Connecticut. It's an easy way to double or even triple the impact of your personal contribution to find a cure and overcome the challenges created by epilepsy. Ask your employer if they participate in a matching gift program and complete the necessary paperwork to have your gift matched.

Make an Impact! A bequest from a will or a living trust lets you make a gift of any size to the Epilepsy Foundation of Connecticut. When making an estate gift, you allow us to invest in new endeavors to support those living with epilepsy and help to ensure the Foundation is here for decades to come. By doing so you are able to receive a current income tax deduction and reduce your potential estate taxes in the future.
