Help CAI Help Kids


We need your support in order to continue our work — and here are ways you can help us help kids:

  • Make a tax-deductible donation to CAI.
  • Make the Children’s Advocacy Institute your charity of choice when using Goodsearch to conduct Internet searches or Goodshop when shopping online. GoodSearch is a Yahoo-powered search engine that donates about a penny per search to CAI each time you use it to search the Internet. GoodShop is an online shopping mall which donates up to 30% of each purchase to CAI; hundreds of vendors — stores, hotels, airlines, and other goods and service providers — are part of GoodShop, and every time you buy from one of the vendors online, part of your purchase price will be donated directly to CAI.
  • Register your support for CAI's legislative priorities.
  • For attorneys involved in class actions resulting in a cy pres distribution fund, recommend CAI as a potential recipient of those funds.
  • Join the Children’s Advocates’ Roundtable and participate in its quarterly meetings.
  • Join Lawyers for Kids, which gives attorneys, law students, and others in the legal community the opportunity to use their talents and resources as advocates to promote the health, safety, and well-being of children; assist CAI’s policy advocacy program; and work with CAI staff on impact litigation or by offering expertise in drafting amicus curiae briefs.
  • Subscribe to receive E-NewsNotes, periodic emails from CAI about important legislative or regulatory proposals, significant litigation, new reports and publications, and other important events that impact the health and well-being of California’s children.
  • Have A Heart, Be A Star, Help Our KIDS! Purchase a California Kids’ Plate, a DMV special license plate featuring one of four symbols: a star, a hand, a plus sign, or a heart. Proceeds support local and statewide programs to prevent child injury and abuse, as well as childcare health and safety programs.
  • Volunteer to be a Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA), a volunteer willing to advocate for the safety and well-being of children who have been removed from their homes due to parental abuse and neglect. Find out more and locate a CASA organization near you.
