NCASA logo National CASA Association

The mission of the National Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) Association, together with its state and local members, is to support and promote court-appointed volunteer advocacy so that every abused and neglected child can be safe, establish permanence and have the opportunity to thrive. CASA volunteers are appointed by judges to watch over and advocate for abused and neglected children, to make sure they don’t get lost in the overburdened legal and social service system or languish in inappropriate group or foster homes. Volunteers stay with each case until it is closed and the child is placed in a safe, permanent home. For many abused children, their CASA volunteer will be the one constant adult presence in their lives. Independent research has demonstrated that children with a CASA volunteer are substantially less likely to spend time in long-term foster care and less likely to reenter care.

Seybert Foundation Logo Seybert Foundation

The Seybert Foundation, founded more than 100 years ago as the Adam and Maria Sarah Seybert Institution for Poor Boys and Girls, is an independent foundation that makes grants to nonprofits serving disadvantaged children and youth in the city of Philadelphia. The foundation's average grant amount has been just over $3,000 of late, with priority given to those nonprofit organizations with annual operating budgets of less than $1.5 million. Seybert Foundation has long included general operating support as one form of its giving strategy, but the vast majority of its grants were historically program-related. "More often than not, applicants seemed to assume they had to structure a request in the form of a project grant, and we responded in kind,” says Sara S. Moran, who will conclude her second term as Board President in January 2013. "But as our average grant amount decreased and our community's needs rose, we began to re-think our approach and how we could focus our dollars while maximizing the value of the support provided to our grantees.”
