The Epilepsy Foundation of Delaware (EFDE) is a private, non-profit service organization providing public education and supportive services to individuals and families affected by epilepsy/seizure disorders.

The mission of the Epilepsy Foundation of Delaware is to identify, reach and support all people impacted by seizures and epilepsy, reduce stigma, increase community awareness and access to care, while leading efforts to facilitate the management of epilepsy throughout Delaware.

Our Newark, Delaware office, located in New Castle County, offers nationally recognized programs and services to residents in all 3 counties throughout Delaware.

With support from a volunteer Board of Directors and Professional Advisory Board that provides medical expertise, we work to ensure an improved quality of life for those who face the challenges presented by epilepsy or seizure disorders.

As your local Epilepsy Foundation affiliate for over 50 years, the Epilepsy Foundation of Delaware is the only non-profit, 501(c)(3) charitable organization dedicated solely to serving people affected by epilepsy in Delaware. We are an independently incorporated affiliate of the Epilepsy Foundation of America.

The work of the EFDE is supported through private donations, a variety of grants including Grant-In-Aid from the State of Delaware, as well as special fundraising events.
