CASA of Johnson & Wyandotte Counties

Lift up a child's voice. A child's life.™

Ways to Give

We wish to provide a volunteer advocate for every child in our community who needs one. Your gift will bring us one step closer to achieving that goal.

  Make a Donation

Every gift large or small supports our mission of empowering abused and neglected children with a volunteer’s voice in court. Monies are spent to recruit, train and supervise volunteers – our life’s blood in serving the children of CASA. You may donate onlineby mail, or by phone, 913.715.4040. Or, give through the Greater Kansas City Community Foundation using their DonorEdge resource. You may also wish to consider joining our Hope Society for monthly giving.

  Memorial and Honorary Gifts

Honor someone special any time of year. Make a gift in another’s honor to celebrate birthdays, anniversaries, or any occasion. It’s a great way to show you care. Making a memorial donation is also a wonderful way to honor, remember, and pay tribute to a loved one who has passed. In making a memorial or honorary gift, your kindness will be announced to the honoree or appropriate family members. You may donate onlineby mail, or by phone, 913.715.4040.

  Planned Giving

Leave a legacy of hope through a planned gift to CASA. If you are interested in making a gift by bequest, please first consult your attorney. You may also contact Amy Boydston, Executive Director at 913.715.4031 for assistance.

  Matching Gifts

Participating in a matching gifts program makes your donation go farther. Many companies encourage employees to donate to their favorite charities by matching their contributions. Your company may even make a monetary donation in recognition of volunteer service. Some companies may also match the gifts of retirees, spouses, surviving spouses, and outside directors. Click here to see a partial listing of companies offering a matching gifts program. Or, talk to your human resources department to find out if a program is available to you.

  Corporate Giving

CASA relies on the generosity of local businesses for direct donations, in-kind gifts, and volunteer activities. CASA offers the "In Good Company" Club, a membership for companies who wish to participate both financially and in volunteer efforts to support CASA. Membership costs support one or more abused or neglected children for the course of a year. Learn more about our corporate opportunities or contact Alyssa Perbeck, Resource Development Director at 913.715.4035.

  Attend a Special Event

Support the cause while also having a good time. By purchasing event tickets for yourself and friends, you will help to bring kids a happier childhood and brighter future.

  In-Kind Gifts/Volunteer Projects

Your family, company, church or community organization may participate in our holiday gift drive. Or, create your own activity such as collecting books, toys, school supplies, or other items for our children. You may also be interested in our Birthday in a Box program, which is a great way to involve youth, your child's classroom or athletic clubs, neighbors and others. Contact Nina Kimbrough at 913.715.4042 for more information. If your organization fundraises for charities, have a representative contact us to discuss the benefits of selecting CASA as the beneficiary.
