Say thanks to your local jeweler on Saturday, September 29th—Jewelers for Children (JFC) Day. Let them know you appreciate JFC’s commitment to helping children who have experienced abuse or neglect.

JFC is the charitable organization of the industry of jewelry retailers, manufacturers, watch companies and trade associations. It is also National CASA’s largest private funder. Thanks in large part to JFC’s investment, our nearly 1,000 programs across the country have been able to serve more than three million children since our partnership began.

Here’s how Jewelers for Children supports the CASA/GAL network:

JFC’s ongoing and generous commitment plays an instrumental role in furthering our vision of every child who has experienced abuse or neglect having the opportunity to thrive in a safe and loving home.

Since 2003, Jewelers for Children has granted more than $10.6 million to the National CASA Association, with nearly $8.5 million going directly to nearly 350 local CASA and GAL programs across the country.
