Exam­ples include:

  • More than 4,200 young peo­ple tran­si­tion­ing from fos­ter care par­tic­i­pat­ed in Oppor­tu­ni­ty Pass­port®, a unique matched sav­ings pro­gram from the Jim Casey Youth Oppor­tu­ni­ties Ini­tia­tive® that helps par­tic­i­pants pay for edu­ca­tion, hous­ing and automobiles.
  • Gen­er­a­tion Work™ part­ners engaged more than 1,300 busi­ness­es and served more than 12,000 indi­vid­u­als between the ages of 19 to 29. The ini­tia­tive, which Casey launched in 2016, pre­pares young peo­ple for employ­ment in grow­ing industries.
  • Four com­mu­ni­ties served near­ly 3,800 chil­dren by employ­ing the Foundation’s Evidence2Success™ frame­work. This approach helps com­mu­ni­ties iden­ti­fy local issues and then select evi­dence-based solu­tions for improv­ing child well-being.
  • The KIDS COUNT® Net­work advo­cat­ed for poli­cies that ben­e­fit­ed 18 mil­lion kids and led to near­ly $31 bil­lion in new or pre­served state investments.

Through­out 2018, the the Casey Foun­da­tion pro­vid­ed $127 mil­lion in grants, tech­ni­cal assis­tance and con­sult­ing to help devel­op solu­tions that build a brighter future for kids, fam­i­lies and com­mu­ni­ties. At the same time, the Foun­da­tion invest­ed near­ly $117 mil­lion of its endow­ment in hous­ing, com­mu­ni­ty and eco­nom­ic devel­op­ment, inno­va­tion in human ser­vices tech­nol­o­gy, and expand­ing access to cap­i­tal for entre­pre­neurs of color.
