Corporate Giving

CASA of Cook County is always looking to involve members of the corporate sector in our growing work.  CASA builds sustainable partnerships with its corporate partners by working hand in hand to find great opportunities for employee volunteerism at CASA programs and events.  Additionally, corporations sponsor CASA of Cook County events and initiatives.  If you would like to learn more about involving your corporation or business in CASA of Cook County’s mission, please contact CASA’s Director of Development, Edna Ho, at edna.ho@casacookcounty.org

Stock Donations

CASA of Cook County accepts charitable stock donations through E-Trade Financial. Although every gift to CASA is tax-deductible, donations of stock significantly increase your tax benefits. By donating appreciated securities (that you’ve held for longer than one year), you can avoid paying the mandatory capital gains taxes if you had instead sold the stock and donated the cash proceeds.  For more information please contact Mark Dinglasan at mark.dinglasan@casacookcounty.org

Gift Matching

First, find out whether or not your employer has a Matching Gift Program.  Then, double or even triple the value of your donation to CASA of Cook County.  Just ask your human resource department for a matching form, send it to us and we’ll complete the paperwork.  Many companies even make charitable donations that match the time you spend volunteering.  For more information please contact Shannon Hodge, Office Manager, at shannon.hodge@casacookcounty.org

 

Planned Giving

Planned giving (or “charitable gift planning”) refers to the process of making a charitable gift of estate assets to one or more nonprofit organizations. These contributions require consideration and planning in light of the donor’s overall estate plan.  For further assistance please contact Edna Ho, Director of Development, at edna.ho@casacookcounty.org
