Ways to Help
Colorado has over 13,000 youth in the Foster Care System and last year only 1/3 of those youth received support from a CASA. Learn how you can make a difference today.
Court-appointed Special Advocates (CASA) Volunteers make a life-changing difference for children in the foster care system.
Volunteers spend time with a child to develop a fuller picture of the child’s life and make informed recommendations to the courts.
A donation to Advocates for Children CASA goes directly back to the youth in your community impacted by trauma and neglect.
A donation helps us recruit, train, and support CASA volunteers who are serving our community.
Spread the Word
Advocates for Children serves over 700 children in Arapahoe, Douglas, Elbert and Lincoln Counties every year.
We need your help to ensure that we continue to grow and support the children in our community by having enough volunteers and donations to operate effectively. Follow us on one or all of our social media websites and share our stories with your friends and families.
Become a Partner
Our corporate donors get their name in front of community leaders and demonstrate their philanthropic commitment.
Partnering with Advocates for Children CASA will give your business extensive visibility and affiliation while making a profound impact on the lives of hundreds of children. If you are interested in donating to our organization or sponsoring one of our events throughout the year, contact Andrea Tagtow.
Ways to Spread the Love
Gift Your Stocks
Take advantage of the bull market we are in by gifting stock! Start by contacting the company where your stock is held, and let them know you’d like to donate shares to a charity. From there, please reach out to Andrea Tagtow to get in contact with our account manager. This is a great opportunity to support our ongoing work in the community while possibly avoiding capital gains and other taxes.
Donate Your Tax Refund
If you receive a state income tax refund, you have a new opportunity to donate it (or simply a portion) to support our mission. You can enter Advocates for Children CASA (registration number 20023003345) in the “Donate to a Colorado Nonprofit Fund” line on your state income tax return or tax software. Or share this info with your tax preparer when preparing your tax documents, and they’ll take care of it for you!
