We're committed to empowering the next generation of philanthropic leaders through the award of scholarships. Over 135 scholarships and stipends have been awarded. These include college scholarships for high school seniors, scholarships for college students to be paid for semester journalism internships, summer internships at a public service agency or nonprofit, and alternative spring break scholarships so that students may experience the joy of giving back through community service.
We are saving lives and making our roads safer by educating students and adults about distracted driving. Our science-based presentations have been given to more than 500,000 students and adults nationwide. Our extensive work includes the development of video public service announcements, educational materials, including safe driving agreements, quizzes and surveys, distracted driving elementary school lesson plans and a picture book to teach children how to speak up when they are being driven by a distracted driver, a bystander intervention program to teach teens how to effectively speak up when driven distracted by others and annual video and meme contests for student created distracted driving messages. Our newest project is a partnership with Brigham and Women’s Hospital and Harvard researchers to conduct the largest teen distracted driving study ever.
Animal Welfare and Service
We honor Casey’s love of animals through our sponsorship of a kennel at a no-kill shelter, annual spay/neuter days at minimal costs to pet owners, programs that rescue animals from disaster areas and multiple facility dogs at a rehabilitation hospital. Our annual day of service on the anniversary of Casey’s death incorporates our commitment to giving back with Casey’s love of animals. Our volunteer day has taken place at animal shelters and the rehab hospital where we have sponsored facility dogs.
