We have published our ‘Use of funds’ statement for 2019 here which outlines for our members, service users and donors how we raise and use our income at Epilepsy Ireland.
As you will see from the statement, things are delicately balanced in "normal" times with just enough income raised to meet the cost of providing our services, training, awareness-raising, research funding and advocacy for people with epilepsy and their families.
With the ongoing COVID19 pandemic, we expect that the situation will be starkly different when we come to posting our use of funds statement for 2020 next year. We project that we will experience a loss of between €350,000 - €400,000 in fundraising income because of the pandemic.
We ask all our supporters - if you have been positively impacted by our work over the years and if you are in position to do so, please consider donating to help us continue our journey towards a society where no person's life is limited by epilepsy. And please encourage friends and family to do likewise. You can donate to our work by clicking here or you could take part in the #challenge32 to encourage others to support our work through these most difficult of times.

Thank you to everyone who supported Epilepsy Ireland in 2019 - we look forward to continuing to work on your behalf for many years to come.
