4 the Children/ CASA of the Southwest trains volunteers to advocate in court for children involved in Dependency and Neglect cases. CASA of the Southwest serves the 22nd and 6th judicial districts, which cover the 5 counties of Southwest Colorado. 4 The Children, the umbrella organization for CASA, also provides supervised exchange and supervised parenting time (SEPT) for families in high conflict divorce cases, domestic violence cases, and for cases where children are in foster care and able to meet with non-custodial family members. Donations may be specific to either the CASA or SEPT program.
Third-party vendors charge credit card and electronic check processing fees when you make an online donation. Two percent of each donation helps to cover these fees and ensures the program's long-term sustainability. The two percent processing fee is one of the lowest processing fees in the country.
You will automatically receive an on-screen acknowledgement letter and an e-mailed copy for your donation. Every donation is tax deductible as a charitable contribution to the full extent permitted by law. If you make a donation to a charity that offers Child Care or Enterprise Zone credits (additional Colorado state tax credits), Community First Foundation will acknowledge that your donation was processed successfully, but the charity will issue you an additional receipt pursuant to that. To learn more about these tax credits, contact the specific nonprofits.
