From my personal knowledge Chuck Carmen and the folks at the Epilepsy Association of Central Florida do an outstanding job in our community and have the respect of everyone that has ever had any involvement with them.

There can never be enough charitable organizations like the Epilepsy Association.

The epilepsy association is a top-tier organization. I have served as a director for the past five years and it is a model for small and medium sized nonprofits. The executive director consistently exceeds my high expectations. The staff follow his lead and do a superb job with everything from providing services to fundraising.

An excellent organization with caring employees providing necessary and unique services throughout Central Florida. Epilepsy is widespread but relatively unknown. The EACF fights the stigma and supports the sufferers of epilepsy.

I have been working with Epilepsy Association of Central Florida for the past 3 years, and I have to say it is an absolute pleasure working with them, especially Chuck Carmen. They are a great to work with and always go that extra mile to help you with whatever it is you might need. They will do anything to help raise money for the Epilepsy community, and from what I have seen, they are doing a GREAT job at it!! Kudos to an Amazing Association, and a Big thank you to Chuck for all his hard work and effort o get them to where they are today. I would love to have someone like Chuck on my team any day!!
