CASP’s mission is “to provide basic needs and a supportive community for those in the process of seeking asylum in the U.S.”

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 about 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 the 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.

Employer-matched donations?

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