Begin to Build a Relationship
We know you care about where your money goes and how it is used. Connect with this organization’s leadership in order to begin to build this important relationship. Your email will be sent directly to this organization’s Director of Development and/or Executive Director.
I’ve never been close to anyone before, and my CASA is the first person I’ve let get close to me. That’s what I like, that our relationship can be honest. [My CASA] can tell me how it is: ‘You kind of messed up on that part, but you can do better next time.’
Be an Agent for Change – Provide an Advocate for Vulnerable Youth
A $5,000 donation helps support one CASA volunteer and the youth they work with over the course of a year. Your donation would provide training and support for the volunteer, as well as needed supplies and activities for the youth (such as a computer for school, new shoes, or registration for a soccer team).
You can be the agent of change and make all the difference for a young person who needs CASA to support them, represent them, and help them heal and thrive.
