Thanksgiving is November 27th. Black Friday is November 28th. Cyber Monday is December 1st. Giving Tuesday is December 2nd. Consider giving to the CASP Scholarship Fund on Giving Tuesday!
In 2012, an organization called 92nd Street Y in New York partnered with the United Nations Foundation to officially recognize the Tuesday after Thanksgiving as a national and global day of giving back. This partnership sparked a movement of people from all over the world to give back in their community.
CASP is asking community members to join in by giving back to CASP on Giving Tuesday, December 2nd! CASP will be putting all donations toward our scholarship fund. In the 2013-2014, CASP expended $53,747.75 in scholarship dollars, and by the end of December 2014, it is estimated that CASP will have spent $18,760.50 in scholarship dollars for the 2014-2015 school year. By the end of the 2014-2015 school year, we estimate that we will have helped 36 children and 28 families with after school care.
With your generous donation, CASP can help even more students and families benefit from our programs. A recent report from the Afterschool Alliance found that after school programs are in demand in Oklahoma. With your support, CASP can serve those students whose parents have need of after school care, but find it difficult to fit this expense into their budget! When elementary school students enter CASP, they are in safe place where they have the opportunity to participate in Be Smart Homework Club, Be Fit Club, numerous enriching activities, relationships with caring staff, and much more. Additionally, after school care supports working parents and gives them peace of mind as they end their work day.
