Endowment Gifts

"Kids Come First!" Endowment Fund for Research in Children's Mental Health

Endowment gifts help stabilize funding for CASA because they are invested, not spent.


The Endowment Fund for Research in Children's Mental Health was created by an initial donation of $5,000.  The purpose of the fund is to support clinical and evaluative research in child and adolescent mental health at CASA.  CASA is involved in ongoing research projects including evaluations of programs to ensure continuous quality improvement in the services we provide.  Your gift will ensure CASA's ability to provide this valuable service.


A percentage of the investment may be used annually to fund current and new initiatives.  The balance of the investment income is re-invested to protect the fund against inflation.  This is the real ‘gift’ of endowment.  With this balanced approach, over a single lifetime, an investment of $50,000 today could result in future annual support for CASA of over $900,000.  And, your gift keeps on giving, and growing, forever.
