If you want to enrich the life of some of our CASA children contributing to our specfic funds is a great way to donate.
The Carol Wardell Scholarship Fund
This scholarship is a simple way to honor CASA supporter, Carol Wardell’s, strong will and resolve in seeking a prosperous life for children who have been in foster or relative care. The goal of this scholarship is to assist these same children as they become future parents, role models and leaders. The scholarship may only be used for post high school educational expenses or vocational training, and will be paid directly to the school or program designated.

The Follies Fund
It has long been the dream of our local CASA program to help our foster children have a more “normal” childhood experience. Attending a school dance, having the chance to own and learn on a computer, or go to a summer camp can help a foster child feel more confident.
The Follies Fund partners with local retailers to provide a place where a foster child may shop and are given the opportunity to select items that match their personal taste. The fund focuses on categories such as technology, clothing, sports and toys, as well as allowing for educational and recreational activities such as music lessons, summer camps and computer classes. Without the Wenatchee Valley Follies Guild this dream would never have come to reality and with your contribution and continued support it will continue for many years to come.
The Christmas Stocking Project
Each Christmas the CASA Program deliver handmade Christmas socks to foster children in our community. Each sock is lovingly made by people throughout the Wenatchee Valley and becomes a way to build positive memories for each child. The socks are filled with gifts and delivered to each child by their CASA before Christmas day. Donations of toys, games and special wishes help to create a special day for each child. Monetary donations insure that a child’s specific wants and/or needs can be met. For more information on this project please click here.
