Interested in leaving a legacy that will change a life forever?


All services to domestic violence survivors are completely free of charge. Every dollar donated to CASA goes directly to meet the needs of our survivors. CASA accepts financial donations to provide the necessary counseling and assistance needed to help survivors escape domestic violence. You can make an investment in changing a life forever! 


Support survivors of domestic violence by making a charitable gift during your lifetime or as a planned gift at the end of life. Under current federal tax laws, generous tax deductions are permitted for charitable gifts. Your attorney or tax advisor can best advise you on the method most suitable for you.


If interested in including CASA as part of your planned giving, contact CEO, Sunshine Arnold, for the Tax ID and exemption certificate numbers. The organization should be named as Citrus County Abuse Shelter Association for legal documentation.


You may mail a check with your tax-deductible donation to:
