We’re proud to be a part of a tight-knit and active community. All we’re missing is you! Check out the various ways to get involved with TESS Research Foundation. Choose the ones that are right for you.
You are powering TESS, and we can’t do it without you. 100% of your donations fund critical SLC13A5 Epilepsy research. Make a single or recurring donation here. See if your workplace offers matching donations. In addition to donating, there are many ways to raise funds to power our mission.
Organize a Fundraiser
Celebrate birthdays, anniversaries, and other milestone — or everyday — events. Set up a Facebook Fundraiser to benefit TESS. Facebook doesn’t charge transaction fees, so 100% of your donations go directly to TESS.
Plan an Event
Become a TESS Champion and plan a lemonade stand, golf tournament, car wash, art night, walk, or gala. Please obtain written permission to use TESS’ logo and name prior to organizing your event. Contact Lindsay (TESS Development Director) to get started.
