You Can Make a Difference in a Child's Life
Did you know… it costs $2700 to provide an advocate for a child for a year? CASA of San Luis Obispo County receives 60% of its funding from the local community and depends on these contributions to fund its work.
There are 450 abused and neglected children under the jurisdiction of the juvenile court in San Luis Obispo County. Your gift to CASA will help us reach our goal of serving each one of these children by providing them with a trained CASA volunteer advocate/mentor.

- IRA Charitable Donations - If you are 70 ½, retired, and have an IRA (SIMPLE or SEP) from which you are legally required to make a minimum withdrawal each year, that required withdrawal is a taxable event - EXCEPT when all or part of that withdrawal is donated to a qualified charity. Currently, this is a temporary tax provision available through 2014. A new bill is being brought to the Senate to make the provision a permanent tax law, but, as with all legislation, it's uncertain if the bill will pass. Consult with your tax advisor for details.
