The nonprofit world relies heavily on our for profit partners. Not just for corporate sponsorships – albeit those are important – but also for talent, employee engagement, and connections. This month, we want to thank our Silver level, In Good Company sponsors, Rockfish Interactive, Truity Credit Union, and Mercy, for their extensive and widely varied contributions.
Our oldest sponsor of the three, Rockfish Interactive, first supported CASA back in 2013. Through the years, their staff have been strong advocates of our Light of Hope event and provided volunteer support around the CASA office. Most recently, their CFO, Cyndi Dye, joined our board and is lending her financial acumen to strengthen CASA’s financial position.
Truity Credit Union came on-board as a sponsor in 2014. Whenever we talk to our Truity partners, we appreciate their focus on business development and relationships. As they understand our need to grow and diversify our advocate base, Truity has connected us with multiple colleagues and agencies who bring us steps closer to our goal to serve every child by 2020.
Our newest supporter is Mercy which joined as an In Good Company sponsor in 2016. When we think Mercy, we think CASA volunteers! Currently, 7 of our 281 advocates are employees of the Mercy health system. These employees are compassionate and knowledgeable and are strongly encouraged by their employer to use their many talents to help children in need.
We are so grateful to these important partners for being allies in the fight to protect and defend the children we serve.
