A World Free of Epilepsy.
What separates HEF from other epilepsy charity organizations is – first and foremost – that our sole focus is on people living with epilepsy. While many other organizations work hard to fund research into a cure, we stand out as the organization devoted to helping families achieve the best lives possible until a cure is found. We do so with a uniquely personal approach. Our vision as reflected in our mission and purpose, guide us to fulfill vital unmet needs by delivering high quality programs and services. Our organizational culture ensures we adopt best practices in transparency, in order to operate ethically and responsibly. We strive to meet the expectations of the epilepsy community-at-large, the general public; as well as our supporters. We place a major emphasis on confidentiality that respects and protects the privacy of both constituents and donors.
