From the Director 

Dear Friends of The Matty Fund,

It's been an exciting two months here at the The Matty Fund. In June alone, we awarded six $1,000 scholarships to Rhode Island high school seniors going on to college while facing the challenges of living with epilepsy.  Read about our scholarship program and meet our 2015 recipients here.  We held our second quarterly workshop "Parenting Your Special Needs Child Across the Lifespan", celebrated the end of the school year with our families at Biomes Marine Biology Center and commemorated 12 years of providing services to our families at the Dunes Club!   Thank you to our sponsors and all who joined us at our Lobster and Seafood Bake! Click here to view photos.

Welcome the Rodgers family!



Now we are making preparations for a fun week of Camp Matty in August!  This free camp gives children with epilepsy the opportunity to socialize in an accepting environment, free of the stigma that is sometimes associated with the diagnosis.  Download application and send to The Matty Fund by August 3rd.


Have a happy and safe summer.  We look forward to seeing you at our upcoming golf tournament!

Even the youngest donors make a difference at The Matty Fund.  It is always a heartwarming experience when 15 year old Harry Bell comes to our office to present us with his donation from the sales proceeds of his candy machines.  He has been donating to The Matty Fund for the past 7 years.  Thank you Harry!!
