Who we are:
CASA of Los Angeles (CASA/LA) mobilizes community volunteers to advocate for children who have experienced abuse and neglect and are in the foster care system. We envision a Los Angeles in which every child in the child welfare system has an advocate and the opportunity to thrive. CASA/LA is on a path over the next ten years to expand services to children in LA County’s child welfare system to provide advocacy services to 12,000 of the 30,000 children in the dependency court system every year. Key to these efforts is recruiting and training more CASA volunteers each year, retaining existing CASA volunteers, and raising additional revenue from private and public sources.
Our core values:
The Chief Development Officer (CDO) will lead the strategic direction of and oversee all of CASA/LA’s development, fundraising, and marketing functions in collaboration with the CEO and a strong team of development professionals. The CDO will develop and execute plans to help CASA/LA raise just over $5 million in FY 2021 and double that annual revenue over the next ten years. The CDO will manage a team of four development and marketing professionals (two direct reports) and oversee fundraising efforts from individuals, corporations, foundations, events and public funding sources. The CDO will represent CASA/LA in the community as an ambassador along with the CEO.
