Volunteers Advocating for Children in Nueces and Aransas Counties
Your donations support the recruitment, training and long-term support of volunteers who serve our community’s most vulnerable children. The goal of CASA of the Coastal Bend is to serve all children who come through the foster care system in Nueces and Aransas Counties. Sadly, we currently are able to serve only one third of the children in protective care.
CASA of the Coastal Bend is proud to be participating in the Coastal Bend Day of Giving - a 24 hour charitable challenge administered by the Coastal Bend Community Foundation. The online matching gift event will take place November 9th from midnight to midnight.

Mark your calendars because we will need your help! We will be joining 52 additional local nonprofits to raise money together. This year, 27 local funders have pledged $1.2 million in matching grants. The amount donated will be matched and doubled, up to $21,800 per organization, each raising at least
$43,600 in just 24 hours!
The Coastal Bend Day of Giving is a one day event led by the Coastal Bend Community Foundation to raise as much money as possible for local nonprofits through online fundraising. It is a community-wide event to show off the Coastal Bend’s spirit of giving, raise awareness about local nonprofits, and celebrate the collective effort it takes to make this area great.
