|As a registered charity, the BC Epilepsy Society relies on people like you to help deliver programs, produce resources, and fund research in BC.
Some of our programs are delivered by volunteers. We rely on volunteers to govern our Society as members of our elected Board of Directors.
And, of course, through your financial support, sponsoring an event, hosting a fund raiser, making a donation, or considering us in your Will.
Our next fundraiser will be on November 10th at the Vancouver Aquarium. It is a James Bond themed gala fundraiser called Shakin' Not Cured. For more information call 604-875-6704 or email email@example.com
