Ways to Donate

Invest in a Child: Support the work of CASA

Your donation will make a difference in a child’s life. CASA depends on donors like you in order to advocate powerfully on behalf of foster children. 

Your donations support recruiting, training and supervising volunteers who advocate for foster children in our community. Currently, only one of four children in Ulster County's foster-care system has CASA representing his or her best interests in court, at school and in our community. With your help, we hope to realize our goal of providing a CASA volunteer to every child who needs one.

CASA supporters say:
CASA has been my primary focus of giving for almost 12 years. I continue to be amazed and overwhelmed by the difference CASA makes in children's lives! I have found no better place to invest that will truly help abused children in our community. That is why I will continue to support CASA for years to come. — Bryan Holley, donor

CASA volunteers are a voice of encouragement, a voice of courage and true leadership, and an inspiration to me. I need their voice to tell me what the true needs of the child and family of origin are in order to heal. — Judge Darlene Byrne

I looked around the courtroom and realized the only adult there who wasn't getting paid to help me was my CASA. Then I knew I could trust my CASA. — Ramon, college student and foster-care alumnus
