Giving Circle

Becoming a monthly “Giving Circle” donor is an easy way for you to provide financial support and show your ongoing dedication toward helping CASA Sacramento continue to deliver quality programs and services.

As a Giving Circle member, your tax-deductible gift makes a tremendous difference in our ability to match Sacramento County’s most at-risk foster youth with advocates.  At the same time, consistent monthly donations help us to better manage our program and maximize the dollar value of your contribution.

You can choose the most convenience method to provide your monthly gift – charge to your credit card (click here), automatic bill pay, PayPal, workplace giving campaign (such as United Way) payroll deduction, or a hard copy check.

It costs us approximately $1,500/year to support a single volunteer advocate. The majority of our youth are transition-age (14 – 17 years) or non-minor dependents (18 – 21 years in extended foster care). A gift of $125/month enables a CASA volunteer advocate to help a youth adjust to new placements, finish high school, explore advanced education and career opportunities, secure housing and become productive members of our community.

 $600/year ($50/month) – $1,499/year: 

  • special recognition on our “Giving Circle” web page and our social media accounts
  • thank you coffee with a key staff member and a CASA volunteer
  • invitation to attend one of the quarterly new CASA advocate swearing in ceremonies

Thanks to support from our community, CASA volunteers can be the dedicated champions foster youth need – teens like “Alexis.”

When Alexis came to us, she was a teenager who had already been shuttled between three different foster homes after her mother gave up her parental rights. CASA volunteer, Denise, made sure Alexis received mental health services, arranged for her to get educational support to keep her on track for high school graduation, and helped her find a stable home.

After four years, Alexis and Denise continue their caring relationship. Alexis is now in college and living in transitional housing under extended foster care. She is learning to become her own advocate and how to thrive in the adult world. Fortunately, she doesn’t have to do that alone, Denise remains her CASA and offers assistance when needed and keeps the court informed of Alexis’ progress. Today, Alexis is taking charge of her future, planning for more college and charting a path of personal success. This is possible because of Alexis’ strength and the caring, consistent and dedicated advocacy of her CASA, Denise.

You may set up a recurring donation with your credit card here. If you need additional assistance or have any questions, please contact communications@sacramentocasa.org or call 916-875-3010. You may print a Giving Circle Levels & Benefits flyer here.
