What is Giving Tuesday?
November is commonly celebrated as a month of appreciation. Giving thanks to family, friends, and all those who light up our lives. Let us not stop the celebration with just family and friends! Join the movement to give thanks and appreciation to the Nonprofits that work tirelessly to make a positive impact on our communities!
What does your donation mean?
Your contribution will help support our commitment to indigent persons within the immigrant community in greater San Diego County. That includes:
- Individuals seeking asylum to escape unjust persecution from their home country.
- Undocumented victims of domestic crime, trafficking, and other civil infringements.
- Abandoned, immigrant children seeking legal protection and visas.
You will be helping clients like Natasha*, who fled Russia after her life was threatened for being a member of the LGBTQ community; or like Margarita*, a Mexican woman who married an American man that locked her into a life of domestic violence and forced servitude. In both of these cases, Casa Cornelia provided legal assistance, and now both women have successfully received humanitarian relief to live without fear.
This is how your donation strengthens our mission and the community in San Diego County:
- $50 will fund a legal screening for one child
- $100 will fund one Know Your Rights presentation
- $500 will fund legal services for recently arrived asylum seekers
- $1,000 will fund assistance for immigrant children's protections
- $5,000 will fully fund one asylum case
