Inspired to Fundraise?

There are so many ways you can fundraise for DSF.  All it takes is inspiration and the desire to raise awareness of Dravet syndrome while encouraging donations from friends and family. Your support in any amount helps bring us closer to a cure!

DSF offers several established fundraising programs throughout the year, or you can set up a personal fundraising campaign with your own fundraising page that will feature your story and why you support the work of DSF. Below is an overview of our various fundraising programs. We are here to support you every step of the way.

Thank You! Because of the generosity of our supporters, DSF is able to fund cutting-edge research that brings hope and the potential for change and improvement to individuals and families dealing with Dravet syndrome and associated epilepsies.
