Fundraising Ideas

Unlike refugees, asylum seekers are not permitted to work for a considerable period of time after they arrive. Those we host therefore depend on our financial support; we, in turn, depend on the creativity of our fundraisers and the generosity of our donors.

Organize a fundraiser?

Maybe you’d like to set your own fundraising idea into motion. Do contact the Fundraising Committee to find out our guidelines.

One example of a simple-to-implement fundraiser: if you belong to an organization that’s sympathetic to CASP’s mission, you might ask that they call for individual donations to CASP as a surprise tribute to (or in memory of) some beloved member of that organization.

Create a Facebook fundraiser?

Instead of a birthday present, ask your friends to celebrate your birthday with a donation to CASP. To find out how, click here, and select Fundraisers for Charitable Organizations.

Donate stocks

If you’d like to donate stocks or other appreciated securities, contact our Treasurer at to make arrangements.

Share your RMD (Required Minimum Distribution)

If the RMD from your retirement account is an unneeded bonus to your regular income, consider sharing it with CASP!

Employer-matched donations

If the business you work for matches employee charitable donations, be sure to notify them of your donations to CASP.

Use the DONATE NOW button

Online donations are always welcome. Consider becoming a sustaining supporter.

If you prefer sending a check, please make it payable to CASP and mail to:

PO Box 1355
Brattleboro, VT 05302-1355

Donate while shopping

If you shop at Amazon, you can ask them donate a percentage of the price to CASP through AmazonSmile

Include CASP in your estate planning
