My Brain: My Gift

Help us to bring our encephalitis community together in 2024 by leaving a gift today.

Through our events and projects, such as My Brain: My Story and My Brain & Me, as well as campaigns which look at the impact of encephalitis, we aim to ensure people affected by this devastating brain condition know they are not alone.

Your gift will mean we can share even more stories and advice that can aid a person’s recovery, help their loved ones, and support bereaved family members.

We are inviting you to consider making a one-off donation or join our group of regular givers pledging continued support to ensure no-one faces an encephalitis diagnosis alone.

MY BRAIN, MY GIFT: GODFREY'S STORY

One of our regular donors, Godfrey, talks about what donating means to him.

What does supporting the Encephalitis Society mean to you?  

Following my wife’s death from the effects of Encephalitis, I want to help the Society spread the news about this devastating illness which I knew nothing about until my wife’s illness.

Why choose to make a regular gift to the Society?  

The Society needs regular income to provide both support to encephalitis suffers and their families and also to make the world more aware of the illness.

What would you say to others considering setting up a regular gift to the Society?   

It’s a great way to support the work of the Society and I feel I am an ongoing team member.

MY BRAIN, MY GIFT: MARIA' STORY

One of our regular donors, Maria, talks about what donating means to her. 

What does supporting the Encephalitis Society mean to you? 

When I had encephalitis, it was the Society that supported my family and I, giving us guidance, and information on a disease that we had never heard of before.   

The lack of awareness and understanding of encephalitis is a challenge, among both our local community and medical professionals we encountered. 

Raising awareness of this condition is not just importantit’s vital. By supporting the Encephalitis Society, I am contributing to their mission to make encephalitis as widely recognised as other conditions like meningitis and dementia. The support helps combat isolation and ensures that individuals affected by encephalitis receive the support they need.  

Why choose to make a regular gift to the Society? 

Making regular donations to the Encephalitis Society is a way to express our gratitude. This small act of giving back is an opportunity to thank the Society for the invaluable support we received during a difficult time. Furthermore, it’s a means of extending a helping hand to others who are affected by this condition, ensuring that the Society remains a reliable source of support. By making our contribution regularly, it allows the Encephalitis Society to carry out their essential work.  

What would you say to others considering setting up a regular gift to the Society? 

Supporting the Encephalitis Society is about more than just making a financial contribution, it’s about creating a sense of security and stability for an organisation that relies heavily on donations. I encourage others to set up regular gifts, no matter the amount, to help the Society plan and continue to pursue its objectives. With an increasing number of people affected by encephalitis, the Encephalitis Society’s work is more critical than ever. Your contribution can ensure that they can keep making a positive impact on those in need.
