Fundraising:

Help STOMP be even more successful by setting up a fundraising team so that The Chelsea Hutchison Foundation can grant more comfort and hope to those living with epilepsy and seizure disorders.  Setting up a fundraising page is FUN and easy. You will have the ability to personalize your own page to share with your friends and family and will be provided with a link to your unique page.
 
Here are the steps to setting up a fundraising team and page.
 
  • Go to www.STOMPIllinois.org
  • Click on the green tab on the right hand side that says "Fundraising"
  • Click on the green tab that says "Become a Fundraiser"
  • Select whether you are fundraising as an individual, joining an existing team or creating a new team.
  • Create your account or log into your existing account if you have one.
  • Follow the prompts from there.  You can set your fundraising goal, tell your story (which we strongly encourage) and upload a photo.  Photos attract attention.  After you have entered these items, it will provide you with a link to your own fundraising page. 
  • Share your page with anyone and everyone.
The Chelsea Hutchison Foundation is all about paying it forward. We will be rewarding the top fundraising individual with a trip to Epilepsy Awareness Day at Disneyland. Here are the qualifiers.

- Must raise a minimum of $2,500
- Must set up a team through one of the STOMP registration sites
- Anyone, anywhere can participate
- If funds are being collected outside the website, they must be turned into CHF corporate office by September 25, 2017 to count.  All online funds must be recorded by midnight September 25, 2017 to count.  Winner will be announced on September 26, 2017.

Trip has a $2500 value.  It is open to anyone so if traveling in November to Epilepsy Awareness Day at Disneyland is not an option, we will provide credit vouchers for travel at a different time.

The Chelsea Hutchison Foundation depends solely on donations and events to raise funds to support our mission. We are 100% volunteer-based so no large salaries come out of your donated funds.

About us

The Chelsea Hutchison Foundation is a non-profit corporation formed to provide help and support to individuals, particularly children and young adults, who have epilepsy. Chelsea touched many lives during her short 16 years here and we are amazed at how many people she continues to touch through the foundation even after her passing.  Her generous heart longed to see love and care come to others.

In her memory The Chelsea Hutchison Foundation is designed to assist people living with Epilepsy.  Funds raised by this Foundation provide grants for seizure-response dogs and epilepsy monitors for those in need, educate the public about SUDEP (Sudden Unexpeccted Death in Epilepsy), and provide support to those who have been affected by SUDEP.  The Chelsea Hutchison Foundation exists to raise awareness of SUDEP and to grant comfort, hope and positivity to individuals and families living with epilepsy.  To date, The Chelsea Hutchison Foundation has had the privilege of providing 102 seizure-response dog grants and has provided over 450 life-saving night-time and day-time movement monitors for those in need.  We have awarded 41 families with wish trips to the one-of-a-kind Epilepsy Awareness Expo and Day at Disneyland. The Expo offers a wealth of information and exposure to professionals, treatment options, education and hope.   

You may ask why we provide grants for these items.  These monitors, while life-saving, are not covered by any insurance companies.  Seizure response service dogs are expensive and most of our families have to raise significant money to obtain one.  Imagine caring for a loved-one with epilepsy 24/7 and being afraid to sleep for fear they might miss a seizure, or worse yet, THAT seizure that is fatal.  Chelsea’s family believes strongly that if they had known to monitor Chelsea at night – and had the means to afford one of these expensive items – their outcome may have been different.  Chelsea’s first nocturnal seizure took her life.

During the 6 years that Chelsea had seizures, no one ever told the Hutchisons that a seizure could take her life other than through an accidental fall or drowning. As a result of that omission, The Chelsea Hutchison Foundation informs those living with epilepsy of the risks and raises awareness of SUDEP so that no other families are blind-sided.
