1. Can I continue to fundraise?
Yes - the event website will remain open until June 30, 2020, and the individual that fundraises the most from June 6 through June 30 at midnight will win an Amazon Fire Tablet! Keep an eye out for our weekly fundraising challenges leading up to June 30 - you’ll have the opportunity to show your support, while earning fabulous prizes while doing so!
The funds you’ve raised will be used toward achieving the mission of the Epilepsy Foundation, including epilepsy care, support, and research. On behalf of our epilepsy community, please know how much we appreciate your support!
2. How can I fundraise virtually?
3. How do I fundraise on Facebook?
The Virtual Walk to END EPILEPSY’s website now allows participants registered for a Walk event to log in and ‘Create a Facebook Fundraiser’ so that all donations received through Facebook will credit their fundraising page, and will be deposited directly to the Epilepsy Foundation and their local Virtual Walk campaign. Log into your RunSignUp account and use the article to get started.
4. Leading up to and on/after Virtual Walk Day, when and where can I turn donations in?
Donations can be mailed to our Epilepsy Foundation office at:
Epilepsy Foundation Iowa
c/o Walk to END EPILEPSY Iowa City
Des Moines, IA 50314
Epilepsy Foundation Tax ID # 52-0856660
5. How can I get my company to match my gift?
Many employers offer programs to match charitable contributions made by their employees. These "matching gifts" are an opportunity to double or possibly triple your donation to Walk to END EPILEPSY and increase funding for the care, support and research efforts of the Epilepsy Foundation.
If you are not sure if you qualify for a matching gift, please reach out to your HR department or leadership team to gather more information.
6. Where can I access more information about Fundraising?
Visit the Fundraising Toolkit page on the event website, here.
7. Will I receive my event participant t-shirt? Or, my living with epilepsy t-shirt?
Yes, participant t-shirts will be mailed to qualifying participants. Any individual that raised $50 or more will receive their official Walk t-shirt! Registered individuals with epilepsy will also receive their living with epilepsy t-shirt via mail, regardless of their fundraising.
T-Shirts will be mailed out after the Walk, once it is safe for our staff to mail them out to you. We appreciate your understanding in advance. Please contact us directly if additional arrangements are required: Iowa Epilepsy Foundation at 515-282-3580 or Iowa@efa.org.
