The goal has been reached! You can still donate to show your support.
Box.org is giving $2 for every $1 Boxers give to the Summer Fun Fund for CASA of San Mateo. May is Foster Care Awareness month and CASA aims to raise $20,000 in partnership with Box to provide a fun summer activity or item to each of the 200 children in their programs. If we reach our $7k goal, Box.org will contribute $14k to bring our grand total to $21,000. Let's do this together to bring joy to kids this summer!
Summer marks a key time for children as they wrap up their school year and look towards fun activities, something they were unable to do last year. While many will participate in those dreamed-of events – from playing in sports leagues to going on family vacations to joining in summer camps – children in the child welfare and juvenile justice systems most likely will not, primarily because of lack of funds and support systems.
Join us in giving May 13-May 31 to support a summer fun activity for foster youth and receive a 2x match for your donation (up to the $7k goal). $100 provides a summer fun activity for one youth, and every amount makes a difference.
Join with friends to together support a child and tag other Boxers on the #boxorg Slack channel once you've donated to get your team involved!
