EVENTS ~ 2014

CASA is a 501(c)3, non-profit organization and operates on grants and donations from businesses and the community. Fundraising is absolutely essential in order to continue providing services to the more than 500 children and youth that we serve each year.  Without the support of the community, we could not serve all of the abused children who enter the system.
2014 Annual Fundraising Events Sponsor:
Your company can be a sponsor at one of our two annual fundraising events. This always entitles you to tables at our events and can most certainly be a rewarding pleasure for your most dedicated staff.
  • April ~ "Children's Garden of Hope" at Meadows Farms Nurseries:   Meadows Farms Nurseries will have a "Day of Hope" on April 5 with all 22 of their locations asking patrons for a donation for CASA.  As a thank you for your donation on April 5, Meadows Farms will take 10% off your spring purchase!  Throughout the month of April however, their five locations in the service area ~ Dulles/Chantilly, Leesburg, Manassas, Warrenton and Woodbridge ~ will continue their "Day of Hope" by accepting your donations to CASA all month (10% discount applies only on April 5).  Patron's making their annual spring garden purchases in April can plant a little hope when they make their donation to CASA!!  A personalized donor plant tag will be planted in the garden to HELP A CHILD BLOOM with EVERY donation!

Don't forget to tip your elf!

  • All year ~ Adopt a Child Program:  It costs $1,500 to provide an advocate for a child for ONE year.  Your business, organization, family and individuals can sponsor the provision of an advocate to a child for all or part of a year.  The donation can be a one time gift OR $125 each month.  There are more than 500 children that are served by CASA CIS each year.  Please consider being a sponsor.
A Uniquely Yours Company Fundraising Event:
Your business or organization can help CASA to provide advocates to the children by holding your OWN exclusive event involving your staff, clients or patrons. Your event will raise money for CASA but should be uniquely created around the work of your company or the interests of your staff and clients. Those that are most often done are runs, walks, bowling, biking, pancake breakfasts, bar-b-ques, etc.  A more unique approach is to tie it to your work For instance, "Bub's Travel" could have a campaign called ' Cruisin' to Save a Child' and tie cruises between certain dates to raise a predetermined (or more) amount of money.  This could involve your clients and help promote them as well. You will have an opportunity to place an article and perhaps an ad that talks about your company or an ad that could list all of the clients you have who contributed to your campaign, promoting both your business AND that of your client as partners to the children in the community.  While this may seem a little self serving to businesses like yours that seek to help with anonymity, it helps non-profits as a whole when a business promotes how they are helping charities to other businesses in the area.  It encourages them to develop their own giving program.
