We welcome your support!

Passaic County CASA works tirelessly on behalf of children who have been abused and neglected. But we can’t do it without you! If you would like to support our work, please consider any of the following methods.

Donate

Our goal is to ensure that every child in Passaic County foster care has a dedicated CASA volunteer by their side. In 2017, thanks to your support, Passaic County CASA provided a Court Appointed Special Advocate to more children than ever: 250 out of the 524 children in Passaic County’s foster care system.

By 2020, with your support, we will continue this growth and reach 360 children. Hopefully the day will also come soon when every child in foster care has a CASA volunteer by their side. We can’t do this without your support. Please make a one-time donation or consider becoming a member of our Monthly Giving Superhero Circle.

You can also donate money to Passaic County CASA in honor of, or in memory of, a loved one. We are happy to send a letter informing them (or their family) of this donation.


Find out if your Employer Matches your donation

You can maximize your gift if your employer has a matching gift program. More than 15 million American employees work for companies with matching gift programs or employee volunteer grant programs! Many employees don’t even know it.

For example, if a donor works for Bank of America and donates $100 to Passaic County CASA, Bank of America will double the donation by also writing a check for $100. That means a donor’s money can go twice as far!

Some companies also match the number of hours that their employees volunteer with a financial donation. That’s a win-win, too!
