Volunteers are integral to the success of the Epilepsy Foundation of Greater Chicago and serve in a variety of ways. Volunteering is a great way to spread awareness while also helping EFGC raise funds for free programs and services.
If you are interested in volunteering, please fill out the volunteer application. An EFGC staff member will reach out to you within a week of your application submission.
We have a number of events that need volunteers including our Gala in February, Spanish Consumer Conference in June, Golf Outing in August, two 5K events in September, and Consumer Conference in November. We are looking for volunteers to assist with solicitation of auction items, recruit event attendees, and assist with day of logistics.
Join our 5K
Help support EFGC by registering for our 5K or creating your own team. Help drive event attendance by recruiting your friends and family to walk or run for EFGC and raise awareness. Registration will open soon.
