Help CASA Win $100,000!

Posted 10/9/17

CASA is an official contestant in the Allstate Foundation's Purple Purse Challenge! That gives us a chance to win up to $100,000 in cash prizes from them-- but we need to reach certain fundraising goals to win. Help out by donating $25 or more now!

Purple Purse 2017 on Crowdrise

Prizes are awarded depending on your donations, so please contribute to CASA's #PurplePurseChallenge! Click here to learn more: www.casa-stpete.org/purple.


Q: How do I become a team leader?
A: Visit this web page and then click the purple "Fundraise" button.

Q: What does it mean to be a team leader?
A: Team leaders act as a sort of pep-squad captain to help CASA win competitions in the Purple Purse competition during the month of October. They do this through social media AND/OR in-person with their friends, clubs or workplaces-- whatever method they like best.

Q: Does it cost anything?
A: No financial cost required! You will be encouraging others to donate to CASA at designated times, so that CASA can win additional cash prizes from the Allstate Foundation.

Q: How much time is involved?
A: Just a few hours if you stick with social media. We'll email you suggestions of times and text for social media posts. You will have the option to check your team stats on the leaderboard and send out additional encouragement to your friends.

For the extra-excited, you can coordinate something at your workplace or with a club. The time involved will vary according to your particular plans.

Q: What are the contests/prizes?
A: The full list is posted here.

Q: Why is this important?
A: Two years ago CASA opened a 100-bed domestic violence shelter. Through creativity and efficiency we have now increased our capacity to 133 beds and cribs! That's a 33% increase, and translates into hundreds of additional people who we can protect from violent abusers.

Unfortunately, our funding has NOT increased enough to match the financial costs involved. We need your help raising money so that we can maintain our higher level of services.
