Your donation helps families and individuals living with epilepsy receive excellent programs and services such as medical clinics, camps, educational awareness, and health and wellness. Our priority is to the people we serve, therefore 95 cents of every dollar are allocated directly to our services.

Hope is possibly the most important thing we share at Epilepsy Foundation Texas. Hope that until a cure is found, there are caring people who can help those with epilepsy manage their disease, instead of being managed by it. By making a year-end gift today, you are sending a message of hope to our neighbors who are affected by epilepsy that they are not alone. Today you are helping to make sure that Epilepsy Foundation Texas does not have to turn away a single person who comes to us frightened, confused, and without resources.
Become a “Camp Angel”
A “Camp Angel” is a generous donor who helps sponsor children and teens living with epilepsy so they may attend camp at no cost. Because of our “Camp Angels”, over 300 children and teens are able to attend camp at no charge to the families who struggle with this expensive medical condition. It costs Epilepsy Foundation Texas roughly $1,200 to send a child to camp.
About our camping program: Epilepsy Foundation Texas provides a residential summer camp experience for children and teens, ages 8-19, where they can feel accepted, understood, and unafraid. Our campers build self-esteem, gain independence and learn about epilepsy and how to manage it while expanding social interaction skills with new camp friends that truly understand the daily challenges of living with epilepsy. They enjoy socializing with others through sports, dances and games. They are put to the challenge to canoe, swim and even conquer obstacle courses and the climbing wall. They are also given the opportunity to talk with others in small groups about their fears and questions which is an invaluable necessity.
