JASPER -- We’re getting an update from organizers of the 100 Men Who Cook event on where the funds raised are going.
All funds raised go to Dubois County CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates)
$7,214 provides the required 20% match for the part-time supervisor position. The remaining balance of her
salary comes from a federal grant. We would not receive the federal money without this match. This position is
totally funded by grant and donation monies.
$786 has been put into our marketing account to continue to promote CASA within the community.
$2,000 has been put into our travel account. Many of our volunteers drive a distance to visit the children they
serve and this money will help them defray their travel cost.
$55,000 has been put into the CASA Endowment at The Dubois County Community Foundation. I believe it is
important to always be looking forward and investing in the future success of the program.
CASA officials have plans in the works for additional projects that will impact the children they serve and the volunteers.
By the end of 2018, the wait list for a CASA in Dubois County was eliminated.
