CASA is proud to announce our participation in Giving Tuesday this year on November 29th! Our payment provider will be waiving their fees on that day, and we will be aiming to raise $5,000 in support of the foster youth of CASA. Even more excitingly, a generous commitment by the Rick and Marcie Sexauer Foundation to match up to $5,000 means that we will be raising up to $10,000 for the youth of Ventura County, all in one day!
For those who don’t know, Giving Tuesday was created by the team at the Belfer Center for Innovation & Social Impact at the 92nd Street Y. Giving Tuesday connects diverse groups of individuals, communities and organizations around the world for one common purpose: to celebrate and encourage giving.Giving Tuesday harnesses the potential of social media and the generosity of people around the world to bring about real change in their communities; it provides a platform for them to encourage the donation of time, resources and talents to address local challenges. It also brings together the collective power of a unique blend of partners— nonprofits, civic organizations, businesses and corporations, as well as families and individuals—to encourage and amplify small acts of kindness.
As a global movement, Giving Tuesday unites countries around the world by sharing our capacity to care for and empower one another.
