Jewelers for Children
Support Level: Mission Partner
In 2013, Jewelers for Children continues its support of abused and neglected children throughout the country with a $500,000 contribution to National CASA, which will be passed through to local CASA programs to support the Champions for Abused Children grant initiative.
“Children often bear the brunt of tough economic times," says Ed Bridge, chairman of Jewelers for Children. "As families experience greater stress due to financial pressures, children in at-risk families are more likely to be victimized. That is why we remain committed to helping fund the work of community CASA programs.”
Jewelers for Children (JFC), the industry organization of jewelry retailers, manufacturers, watch companies and trade associations, is the leading private supporter of the National CASA Association and its member programs. Through its Champions for Abused Children Initiative, JFC has contributed more than $7.4 million since 2003, significantly advancing National CASA's vision of providing a CASA volunteer for every abused and neglected child who needs one. The initiative also provides opportunities for jewelry industry members to volunteer to help children.
As a result of the hard work and generosity of JFC's underwriters and other members of the jewelry industry, Jewelers for Children has distributed more than $40 million to its recipient charities since 1999.
