State Organization Survey Period Open Through March 31

National CASA appreciates the time that each program takes to compile and submit the Annual State Organization Survey. This survey contains questions in four categories: organizational structure, revenue/finances, board of directors/governing body (if applicable), and staffing. Information from state organizations is essential to our ability to make the case to Congress as well as to national foundations and corporations for continued funding. The findings illustrated by these survey results are critically important to tracking growth, development and trends among state organizations and local programs and helping the National CASA Association better serve state and local organizations. The report produced as a result this survey will also help you reinforce your case for support, placing your work within the context of the national network. For example, both state director and local director salary ranges have been used to make the case for increased funding to state offices in both 2016 and 2017.  

You can access the survey at https://app.keysurvey.com/portal/#1051278. You will need your survey portal user login and password to gain access. If you are unsure of your login and password please contact survey@casaforchildren.org.

 

Annual Local Program Survey Period Open Feb. 15-March 31

It is once again time to complete the National CASA Association local program annual survey. The survey link is now live and the deadline for completion is March 31, 2018 with no extensions.

Information from state organizations and local programs is essential to our ability to make the case to Congress as well as to national foundations and corporations for continued funding. The findings illustrated by these survey results are critically important to tracking growth, development and trends among state organizations and local programs and helping the National CASA Association better serve state and local organizations. The report produced as a result this survey will also help you reinforce your case for support, placing your work within the context of the national network.

All local programs are required to complete an annual survey except those in Florida, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Utah as their state organizations provide data directly to National CASA. Programs that have remote (satellite) offices should include data from those offices in their program’s submission. The remote offices will not receive a separate survey request.

As a part of our commitment to trust and transparency, your state organization will have access to all information in your completed survey. This will help ensure that state organizations have a full set of survey data to inform their work with and service to local programs in their states. Your survey information will be available only to National CASA and your state organization.

Any state organization or local program wishing to apply for a grant from National CASA must be current with the annual survey and program six-month reporting.

Please remember that you can complete the survey in sections and go back to make changes or corrections any time prior to the deadline

Six-Month Survey for Second Half of 2017. Thanks to everyone who submitted their survey by the Jan. 25 deadline!

• The six-month report is required by the National CASA Association's largest funder, the U.S. Department of Justice's Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP). OJJDP is the primary source of funding for pass-through grants to CASA/GAL programs, our national training curriculum, marketing and awareness resources, quality assurance and technical assistance to the network.
• It is critical that accurate state and local program data be reported as we use this information to make a case for future funding to provide grants and other assistance to the network.
• Completion of the six-month report is required to maintain good standing with National CASA. Additionally, any state organization or local program wishing to apply for a grant from National CASA must be current with the annual survey and the program six-month report.
