Planned Giving

Planned giving options (often referred to as bequest or legacy giving) helps to ensure your commitment to providing rights-based advocacy for children in foster care. The way you feel about all children deserving a safe and nurturing home where they can reach their full potential is personal. All children deserve this right, and you know it’s harder for child victims of abuse and neglect who have been placed in foster care. As a champion for the children in our community, you want every child to reach their full potential.

Please discuss your legacy goals with your financial or estate professional.

Bequests through Will or Trust

Your bequest will provide a vitally-needed way for CASA to continue its advocacy for children in foster care for generations to come.

CASA of Monterey County recommends that bequests be made toward unrestricted general purposes in its work to train and support CASA volunteers to support our foster youth.  We are happy to provide you samples of bequest language to assist your financial or estate professional in the preparation of your will or trust.

Charitable Gift Annuities

A charitable gift annuity (CGA) is a win-win contract between a donor and CASA of Monterey County. As a donor, you make a gift to CASA of Monterey County using cash, securities or possibly other assets. In return, you become eligible to take a partial tax deduction for your donation, plus you receive a fixed stream of income from the charity for the rest of your life.

To discuss any planned giving options, please call our Director of Philanthropy Teressa Jimenez at (831) 455-6800 x22, or email [email protected].

Donate Through Donor Advised Fund (DAF)

Donor Advised Funds (DAFs) allow donors to make a charitable contribution, receive an immediate tax deduction, and then recommend grants from the fund over time.

CASA of Monterey County has proudly received contributions from our philanthropic community through DAFs and can be aligned with the supporter’s interests. Gifts to CASA of Monterey County can be designated for use wherever the need is greatest or for specific funds, such as our Children’s Needs Fund or CASA Scholarship Fund.
