Partnerships with a Purpose

Benefitting Foster Care Children and CASA Volunteers

Thank you for considering CASA Kane County as a beneficiary of your fundraising activities.  Our Partnerships with a Purpose program is any event developed by a company, organization or individual that willl host an event or sale to benefit our child advocacy program.  Listed below are a few facts, guidelines and ideas that will get you started to help us raise awareness, friends and funds in partnering with a purpose for foster care children.

The money raised will be used towards the recruitment, training and supervision of community volunteers who serve as Court Appointed Special Advocates/Guardians ad Litem (CASA/GAL) for children who are in court due to abuse and neglect.  Your generous contributions will provide:

  • Consistent quality Guardian ad Litem services and programs for children;
  • Volunteers with quality case management and training;
  • Increased awareness and visibility for CASA Kane County and
  • A financial plan that will enable us to sustain our future for generations to come.
  • How You Can Make a Difference:

    Step 1 – Decide what type of event you would like to host (i.e. golf outing, marathons, sales benefiting CASA Kane County, the lists are endless).

    Step 2 - We ask that you contact Lori Hewitt, Director of Development at 630-444-3107 or This email address is being protected from spambots.

    As a final note, although CASA Kane County actively encourages third party events, we must approve all events in advance.  We maintain the right to decline events, as this is an important safeguard in preserving the integrity of the name and reputation of CASA Kane County as well as our commitment to donors.   We appreciate your interest in helping the most vulnerable children in our society.

    One Example of a CASA Kane County Partnership:fvo-logo

    Thank you to Fox Valley Orthopedics for their creative sponsorship of the CASA Kane County Fox Valley KIDS Marathon!

    They have agreed to donate $1 for every mile run by each child in the Fox Valley KIDS Marathon throughout the summer months.  

    The KIDS Marathon is designed to keep children active over the summer months while having fun and achieving a goal.  The children run one mile at a time and all come together on race day to run the final 1.2 miles.  They receive a t-shirt and medal just like the adult marathoners.  They can acheve the full 26.2 miles by running one mile at a time over the summer, either on their own, or by attending the weekly "fun runs."

    This is a unique partnership with Fox Valley Orthopedics and CASA Kane County to help raise funds for a great cause and motivate the children to be successful!  THANK YOU!
