About Dravet Syndrome Foundation

The mission of Dravet Syndrome Foundation (DSF) is to aggressively raise research funds for Dravet syndrome and related epilepsies; to increase awareness of these catastrophic conditions; and to provide support to affected individuals and families.

We understand:

  • The ongoing need to fund innovative research
  • The urgency in finding better treatments
  • The motivation of our donors to make an impact specifically in the fields of Dravet syndrome and related epilepsies
  • The importance of transparency and accountability of not only our organization, but the researchers that we fund
  • The need for global collaboration in order to find a cure

Dravet Syndrome Foundation was founded by a group of parents with the purpose of expediting research to find a cure and better treatments for their afflicted children. It was established in the state of Connecticut and was designated a tax-exempt public charity in the United States in October 2009 by the Internal Revenue Service under Section 501(c)(3).
