Macon County CASA is funded by many streams—individual donations, fundraisers, grants, and more.
Our advocacy work is for the child.
Thank you for making a difference in the lives of abused and neglected children with your generous donations that allow us to:
- Recruit, case manage, supervise, and train CASA volunteers.
- Improve the quality of training of the CASA program.
- Contribute to the annual fund to sustain the CASA program.
- Purchase upgraded information technology.
The average cost per child placed outside of a family home (in foster care) is $5,700/month (covered by state and federal funding—i.e. taxpayers); Macon County CASA reduces the time a child spends in foster care by an average of 6 months per case.
Macon County CASA drives potential taxpayer savings of $34,200* per closed case.
*$5,700 (monthly cost) x 6 (months in foster care) = $34,200
