The campaign has now expired but it's not too late to support this charity.

Over the last two decades, the majority of CURE Epilepsy's research funding has been focused on better understanding the causes of epilepsy and uncovering new therapies.

In 2020, we launched the CURE Epilepsy Catalyst initiative aimed at bridging the gap between basic, or early stage research, and clinical trials-the final step to bring a treatment to patients.

Now, a generous donor has challenged us to inspire our community to support the Catalyst initiative. The Robert Withrow Wier Challenge Grant will match new gifts dollar-for-dollar until we reach $250,000. This includes gifts from first-time donors and past donors who did not make a gift in 2020.

The Robert Withrow Wier Challenge Grant will only be unlocked once we raise $250,000 in new gifts. Please make a gift now and help us accelerate research toward a cure.

About the charity

Our mission is to find a cure for epilepsy, by promoting and funding patient-focused research.
