Join the community in saying "No More" to domestic violence. Help fund CASA to ensure that domestic violence survivors always have a safe place to go and advocates to help them create lasting changes in their lives.
Approximately 30% of women and 15% of men will be effected by domestic violence during their lifetimes. Pause to think about that staggering fact and what it takes to counter this epidemic.
It takes caring people like you to fund CASA so that the next person who calls our 24-hour hotline has access to an advocate in the court system, a support group to help them through trying times, or simply clothing to send their children to school in after they have left an abusive home.

Donate items to the shelter or thrift shoppe
When CASA participants escape a dangerous situation at their home, they may not have the chance to pack clothing or personal care items. Donations from this list mean so much to survivors who must start over with nothing.
Donated items are either provided free to domestic violence survivors or sold at CASA Collections Thrift Shoppe, with all proceeds funding our programs and services. Please drop off items at 1011 First Ave N, St. Petersburg or call (727) 828-1233 to schedule a furniture pickup.
CASA has upcoming fundraising events with sponsorship opportunities, including at our signature annual events, the Peace Breakfast in October and Good Night's Sleep Luncheon in the Spring. Learn about these and other events at www.casa-stpete.org/events.
Gift annuities, life insurance policies, endowment funds, IRA’s and other, often tax advantaged, strategies enable donors to make meaningful gifts to provide crucial financial support for the future of CASA. Your generous gift through your bequest will help hundreds of survivor’s in southern Pinellas County and create a philanthropic legacy for others to follow.
When you make your lifetime giving plans, remember that by providing for CASA through a bequest, your estate will receive the full benefit of an estate tax charitable contribution deduction. Your investment in CASA’s future will ensure a community without domestic violence so that home is a safe place for generations to come.

By gifting shares of appreciated stock, you receive two additional benefits for your generosity: a tax deduction for the total value of the stock and no capital gains on the additional money you made from the appreciation of the stock. Plus, your contribution has a value to CASA now that is far greater than the price you paid for the stock originally.
To learn more about Giving Stock, please call CASA's Development Office at (727) 895-4912 x105 or email@example.com.
Remember a loved one or honor a special event in the life of someone dear to you, such as a birthday or a graduation, by making a gift to CASA in her or his name.
The mission of the CASA Foundation is to maintain a separate organization that exists to help meet CASA's ongoing financial needs and support its long term financial stability.
CASA has recently opened a new 100-bed domestic violence center, more than tripling our capacity to offer protection and services to survivors of domestic violence and their children. The Sunshine & Hope Capital Campaign was established to enable CASA to maintain the physical facilities necessary to serve and provide a comfortable, homelike environment for survivors of domestic abuse. Multiple naming opportunities exist at many giving levels to permanently memorialize your generosity.
For more information about the Sunshine & Hope Capital Campaign, please visit this web page or call CASA's Development Office at (727) 895-4912 x105 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
