A Record-Setting Boston Walk for Epilepsy!

Our Boston Walk for Epilepsy set records last Saturday, raising over $148,000 with 1,200 walkers. Check out our highlights here.

Cummings Foundation Awards $100,000 to EFNE for Employment Services!

EFNE is one of 100 local nonprofits to receive a grant of $100,000 through Cummings Foundation's "$100K for 100" program. The Foundation was chosen from a total of 549 applicants during a competitive review process. EFNE’s Employment Services program aims to support people their journey towards gratifying, competitive employment. “Finding work in a competitive job market can be challenging, to say the least.  Finding work that is gratifying, pays well, and fits the transportation and accommodation requirements that many people with epilepsy require, is even more challenging – but not impossible. We are doing it,” said EFNE’s Director of Employment Services, Franky Descoteaux.  
EFNE’s President and CEO, Susan Linn, and Board Member, Jeff Glidden, will join approximately 300 other guests at a reception at TradeCenter 128 in Woburn to celebrate the $10 million infusion into Greater Boston's nonprofit sector. With the conclusion of this grant cycle, Cummings Foundation has now awarded more than $170 million to local nonprofits alone.  “This investment will allow us to provide more individualized coaching and job support for people with epilepsy, making a difference for hundreds of people who will get to work because of the Cummings Foundation’s support.  We are very grateful,” said Linn. Thank you, Cummings Foundation! #100Kfor100
