#GivingTuesday was created in 2012 as a simple idea: A day that encourages people to do good. Over the past eight years, it has grown into a global movement that inspires hundreds of millions of people to give, collaborate, and celebrate generosity. And this Giving Tuesday, November 28, 2023, we are asking you to support Syngap Research Fund!
Over the last several years, hundreds of epilepsy genes have been identified. One of these genes, SYNGAP1, is responsible for creating a critical protein (SynGAP) that enables proper brain development and function. As a result, patients with a SYNGAP1 genetic variant do not only suffer from epilepsy, but a wide array of severe neurological symptoms, including intellectual disability, autism, speech delay or lack of speech, hypotonia, sleep disorders and behavior issues. Unless we develop a cure, our loved ones will require around-the-clock care for the rest of their lives.
Our children’s brains are being built every single day upon a poor foundation, and the sooner we can find a treatment that addresses the root cause, the more likely we are to be able to profoundly improve our children’s quality of life. Since inception in 2018, SRF has granted over $4M directly to Syngap research — but there's more work to do!
There are three things we are asking of you:
1. Please consider making a charitable contribution to support this meaningful work!
2. Join us in fundraising by sharing a link to this page on your social media to let your friends and family know you support SRF this Giving Tuesday!
3. Please use hashtags #SRFGivingTuesday, and #GivingTuesday to help us spread awareness!
