What You Can Do

There are so many ways to support CAST’s mission.

MAKE A ONE-TIME, RECURRING OR "IN HONOR OF GIFT

Your financial gift plays a vital role in protecting and empowering survivors of human trafficking. We rely on your support to help survivors escape dangerous situations, recover from serious trauma and begin to dream again. You make it possible for them to reclaim freedom and live with dignity.

CAST has been recognized by the United Nations, the White House, the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office and the City of Los Angeles, so you can feel confident that your gift will support the very best programs available to human trafficking survivors.

MAKE A PLANNED GIFT

A planned gift to CAST is an investment in ending modern slavery. Talk to your financial advisor about including CAST in your estate planning or as the beneficiary of your long-term savings plans (e.g., retirement and insurance accounts). These donations can lower your tax burden and support CAST’s life-saving services now and in the future.

WORKPLACE GIVING & MATCH

Check to see if your employer has a workplace giving and/or match program that allows you to designate a portion of each paycheck to help support and expand CAST's programs and services in support of human trafficking survivors. Many programs also have a matching component, so that the impact of every dollar you donate may be doubled.

RAISE AWARENESS & FUNDRAISE FOR CAST

Start your own community or university anti-trafficking group. Organize awareness events and fundraisers (i.e., film screenings, hosted parties, etc.). Your efforts to raise funds in support of our programs are an investment in ending modern slavery.
