SUPPORT ABUSED AND NEGLECTED CHILDREN

How much will you give to help the children of our community?

When children can’t speak for themselves, CASA can.

CASA Kane County relies on the generosity of individuals, corporations and foundations for annual donations. Your donation provides a trained CASA/ GAL volunteer to support what’s in the best interest of youth in foster care.

SPONSOR OR ATTEND AN EVENT

CASA Kane County’s event revenue comprises more than 1/3 of our non-profit’s budget. Since 100% of the budget must come from private donations and grants, this is an important aspect of the organization’s success for advocacy. To donate, attend or volunteer, please contact us at  630-232-4484.

Gift Card & Suitcase Program

In 2011, CASA Kane County began a very important much-needed initiative to enhance the lives of children by providing them with essential items. Everyone can do SOMETHING, and together we can all make a difference in the life of a child!

Grow a Healthy Child

GARDEN

Built in 2012, the CASA Kane County Grow a Healthy Child Garden provides a beautiful place where people in our community, visitors to the courthouse and families can find some serenity. Naming opportunities on bricks, pavers and in the garden are still available.

Leave a Legacy

OUR FUTURE DEPENDS ON IT

The Annual Fund and Operational Endowment will provide the much needed level of annual income to our operational budget to ensure we can maintain the quality that our court and community expects. It will also help provide for long-term sustainability of the organization in responding to the needs of the children served, regardless of external environmental factors.
