Check out our FY 2016 Annual Report!

2016 was an exciting year for Child Advocates San Antonio! We expanded our advocacy for abused and neglected children of San Antonio and Bexar County. Our FY 2016 annual report not only highlights our successes of this past year and our generous supporters, but our goals of providing more Advocates and improving the outcomes for abused and neglected children in foster care. Please pick up a copy from the office today or click here to see it online.

CASA kicks off their Birdies for Charity campaign

Valero and CASA are working together for the annual Valero Texas Open Birdies for Charity.  The Valero Texas Open works annually with charities across Bexar County to raise awareness and donations for causes in our community. 

Birdies for Charity is a no-cost fundraising program that gives 100% back to CASA, designed to give us the opportunity to generate contributions through the Valero Texas Open. All you’ll have to do is make a pledge for every birdie made at the Valero Texas Open. The 2016 Valero Texas Open had 1,834 birdies made, so a pledge of $0.01 yielded a donation of $18.34; even a one-time donation helps the cause of serving more abused and neglected children! 

We’d love for you to get involved with Birdies for Charity and give back to your community in a fun way!

How Can You Help?

1) Click here to make a donation or pledge to CASA!

2) Share our other social media posts online, so more people know how to contribute!

3) Consider handing out Birdies for Charity donation forms to interested family or friends (or even bringing them to your office space!).  They are available for pick up here at the CASA office or we can mail them to you upon request.

All proceeds go directly to CASA.  Last year, we were one of the top charities and it takes your support to get us to number #1! Our Advocate supervisors are in a competition to see who can bring in the most money, so help them win a day off by getting your friends and family to donate!

Mark your calendar for the Big Give!

The Big Give had their kickoff this month and we are excited about the changes they have in store!  They have contracted with a new provider to ensure that the website issues of last year do not occur again.  In addition, the new providers a lot more freedom to personalize our messaging.  Mark your calendars for May 4th and join CASA in our annual BIG Give event here at our office. Be sure to check back with us for more details on what to expect!
