The Epilepsy Foundation of Greater Los Angeles is leading the fight to END EPILEPSY and overcome challenges created by seizures by focusing on Care, Advocacy, Research and Education. Through these areas of focus, we offer a range of services and programs to help, support, advocate for, and empower those who are affected by epilepsy and their caregivers. We also support research to accelerate cures for the epilepsies, support the training and work of new pediatric epilepsy specialists, and also seek to educate the general public to better understand epilepsy/seizure disorders, and fight to END EPILEPSY.
We serve individuals and families affected by epilepsy/seizure disorders. Our primary areas of service include the Counties of Los Angeles (10.14 million), Orange (3.1 million), San Bernardino (2.1 million) and Ventura (0.85 million). The estimated combined population of our territory is over 16 million. At least 1% of the population has epilepsy/seizure disorders. Thus, in the four Counties we serve, almost 160,000 people have epilepsy. However, many more are significantly impacted by epilepsy in their daily lives when you include family members, caregivers, and friends in the total.
We are here for you, as we have been for more than 61 years. As your local Epilepsy Foundation affiliate, the Epilepsy Foundation of Greater Los Angeles is the only non-profit, 501(c)(3) charitable organization dedicated solely to serving people affected by epilepsy in this entire region. Our tax ID is 95-2046033. Though we are an independent non-profit organization, we have chosen to affiliate with the national Epilepsy Foundation in Landover, Maryland.
