In 1992, Grunberg married Elizabeth Dawn Wershow. They have three children: Jake, Ben, and Sam. Jake has epilepsy, which has inspired Grunberg to take an active role in raising awareness of the neurological disorder and raising funds for research. He often organizes charity efforts to raise funds for the Pediatric Epilepsy Project in Los Angeles. In the past, this has included events such as an auction of guitars handpainted by celebrities such as Donald Trump, Pink and Grunberg's Alias co-stars Jennifer Garner and Michael Vartan as well as concerts by the Band From TV that includes Grunberg and Hugh Laurie and an online auction of cartoons drawn of his Heroes costars. In March 2007, Greg served as the chair of the first National Walk for Epilepsy, presented by the Epilepsy Foundation. In 2009, Grunberg launched Talk About It, a website dedicated to epilepsy education and awareness, featuring many of Greg's co-stars and celebrity friends, including Garner, Larter, Pasdar, Ramamurthy, Ventimiglia, Panettiere, as well as Zachary Quinto, Chris Pine, Dr. Drew Pinsky, Ron Rifkin, and John Mayer. The site features Grunberg interviewing top epilepsy experts on the need to talk more about epilepsy, and includes a section for people all over the world to talk about it. Grunberg was a participant in the first-ever national television advertising campaign supporting donations to Jewish federations. The program featured “film and television personalities celebrating their Jewish heritage and promoting charitable giving to the Jewish community” and included Marlee Matlin, Joshua Malina, Kevin Weisman, and Jonathan Silverman. He made a tongue-in-cheek promotional video for Temple Judea Religious School lambasting boring Hebrew Religious schools. Grunberg is one of the hosts of Social Tron Live, a Twitch channel, in a segment called Greg Grunberg live where he plays video games with fellow celebrities, comedians, and popular Twitch streamers.
