We did it!

This week via social media and through an email to members, we asked Thetas and their friends to help us raise $25,000 in 25 hours to help 25 children in celebration of our 25-year relationship with National Court Appointed Special Advocates. We are pleased to share that we exceeded our goal! At least 27 children (we are still tallying the donations!) will receive the support of a CASA thanks to the hundreds of Thetas and their friends who worked together to demonstrate that abused and neglected children are not forgotten!

This 25-hour challenge is just one way Theta remains an ardent supporter of CASA after 25 years. Thetas continually demonstrate their commitment to the cause by serving as volunteers for CASA and, as revealed through this drive, as powerful advocates to spread awareness. Through their fundraising efforts, our college and alumnae chapters provide local CASA organizations with much-needed support in their respective communities. Through donations received throughout the year, Theta Foundation makes quarterly grants to National CASA to help provide essential training, educational materials, and advocacy work that benefit the nationwide network.

No matter how you choose to support CASA, rest assured you are making it possible for a qualified, compassionate adult to fight for and protect a child's right to be safe, to be treated with dignity and respect, and to learn and grow in the security of a loving family.

The 25-hour challenge may be over, but the impact of our generosity is only just beginning! Our thanks to Thetas and friends for continuing to spread the widest influence for good and for leading the way for this worthwhile cause.

Learn more about Theta's relationship with CASA and how you can continue to help.
