Toy Industry Foundation

Toy Industry Foundation LogoIn 2015, the partnership between the Toy Industry Foundation (TIF) and the National CASA Association provided both generous funding for training CASA volunteers and close to 50,000 toys for abused or neglected children. The Toy Industry Foundation continues to be a major partner in the National CASA Association's mission to support and promote court-appointed volunteer advocacy so that every abused and neglected child in the United States can be safe, has a permanent home and the opportunity to thrive.

Two successful “Play Your Part” events were hosted in 2015. Both brought Toy Industry Foundation volunteers, CASA volunteers and staff, and foster children together for days of magic.

Toy Industry Foundation Chicago 2015

At this event, hosted by Beverly Hills Moving and Storage, CASA of LA, the National CASA Association and the Toy Industry Foundation, toys were wrapped for more than 7,000 abused and neglected children throughout California. Ten local CASA programs distributed the toys wrapped by Toy Industry Foundation volunteers.

“Play Your Part” was made possible thanks to generous toy donations to TIF’s Toy Bank, volunteer teams, and sponsorship provided by toy industry companies, including the following “Big Heart” and Specialty event sponsors: Funrise Toy Corporation, JAKKS Pacific, Mattel, Patch Products, TOMY International, and Vtech Electronics North America.
