AN INVESTMENT in a Child’s Future and in our Community
As a Friend of CASA, your tax-deductible gift furthers our capacity to professionally support our volunteer advocates who work with the children in the foster care system. Your ongoing support enables us to train more volunteers to guide the delicate lives of abused and neglected children in San Benito County. The cost of screening, training, and supervising one volunteer for a year is approximately $2,500.

Charitable Contributions for 2020:

For the entire year of 2020, the limitation on how much of your charitable donations you can deduct against your income, no matter who you are or how much you give, has been lifted. Previously, it was a maximum of 60% for cash donations and 50% for non-cash contributions.

Under the CARES Act, these limitations have been removed for Federal income tax purposes. Additionally, anyone who donates up to $300, whether they itemize or not, can deduct that against other income for donations in 2020 (considered an “Above the Line” deduction).

CASA also accepts non-cash donations:
