Mission & Territory


The Epilepsy Foundation of Northern California (EFNC) is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization leading the fight to overcome the challenges of living with epilepsy and to accelerate therapies to stop seizures, find cures, and save lives.

EFNC is dedicated to providing information, resources, and support to the over 180,000 Northern Californians living with epilepsy.

Our goal is to ensure that people with seizures are able to participate in all life experiences, to improve how the community views epilepsy, and to dispel myths about this condition by providing information through training, events, and programs.

We are currently serving 44 counties from the Oregon border down to Fresno County.
