Each Gift Directly Helps a Child

As a donor, you want to know that your gift will be used for its intended purpose. In this section, you can learn about how you and CASA make a difference, the cost per child, and even some real examples of children served by CASA.

Monthly Recurring Donation

At CASA of Franklin County, we take that very seriously. We know that each gift we receive does directly help a child.

  • CASA financial management monitors, tracks and verifies appropriate spending through internal control procedures, sound accounting principles and systems, board financial oversight, financial reviews and audits.
  • CASA does ONE project, has ONE mission and that is to provide the best possible advocacy for as many abused and neglected children as we can.
  • It costs a $1000 a year to advocate for a child. While some administrative and fundraising costs are necessary, CASA has worked to keep these as low as possible, so more of each gift directly helps a child.
  • Your gift helps children who have suffered abuse and neglect often at the hands of the very adults who should be caring for them. Your help provides a CASA/GAL volunteer who will advocate for a safe and permanent home for these children.

CASA understands the need for complete transparency and how our funds are used. This is evidenced throughout the website, specifically in this section and the CASA Financial Overview section. We have included links to our audits, IRS 990s, and our current operating budget. We want you to be confident that your gift is directly helping a child. We welcome questions and will gladly provide additional information whenever possible. Contact CASAs Executive Director, Kathy Kerr at 614-525-2461 orĀ kkerr@
