Results of Silicon Valley Gives 2016 - May 3
We are awed and humbled.
CASA raised $55,081 which put us in 6th place for the most money raised out of 1,020 nonprofits participating in Silicon Valley Gives. Since we qualified for an additional $45,000 in matching grants, we've raised a grand total of $100,081 -- enough to support 40 children on our waitlist!
Your gifts of time, talent and money contribute to CASA's ongoing fundraising efforts on behalf of the most vulnerable children in our community. You may not know that 23% of our funding comes from generous individuals and another 20% is raised by the hardworking members of our Auxiliary, volunteers who plan and host our annual Garden Party.
A big thank you to all of our dedicated CASA volunteers who provided comfort and hope to nearly 300 children last year. You are the heart and soul of CASA of San Mateo County.
