Other Ways to Help

Your help makes our impact possible.  Serving every child is possible, but we can’t do it alone!  Here are some of the ways that you can help.  Creative ways to help your local CASA programs are endless and very welcome. If you have any other suggests on ways to support our program, please contact us at or (775) 574-8820.

Become a CASA

Are you interested in becoming a CASA volunteer and donating your time to helping one or several foster children in need?

Not Ready to Become a CASA? No worries! We understand that becoming a CASA volunteer is a significant investment of your time, energy, and your emotions. The following are additional ways you can help the Washoe CASA Foundation:

Request a Speaker

Interested in having CASA present to your organization or at an event?  You can help recruit volunteers by inviting a CASA Ambassador to speak to your office, place of business, church, book club, club, or organization. Share the details here and we’ll be in touch.

Make a Donation

The amount of children we can help is directly tied to the amount of funding we receive. You can make a difference in the life of a foster child.

Become a Champion of Children

Our advocates champion the rights of foster youth every day. With your monthly contribution, you'll become a champion for our advocates (by ensuring they have the resources and support they need to do their work professionally and efficiently) and our city's youth (by providing CASA volunteers who will serve them to the best of their ability). Your monthly donation enables us to plan better and use your gift where it's needed most.  Join our monthly giving program today.

Donate For a Loved One

Memoriam – Keep the giving spirit of a friend or loved one alive through a donation in their name. Consider giving to Washoe CASA in memory of a loved one – continuing that person’s legacy by making a difference in children’s lives.
