CAST Foundation is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization that was created in 2010, to Create A Stronger Tomorrow by providing financial assistance to other nonprofit organizations that strengthen our community. CAST Foundation was started by a group of friends looking for a way to make a difference in the lives of others. We have the common belief that the things we accomplish today will make our society stronger tomorrow. In order to accomplish this goal, CAST Foundation donates the proceeds of fundraisers to other nonprofit organizations who share our common goal. Past donation recipients include Children's Oncology Service Inc, CASA of Dekalb County, Feed'Em Soup, Girls on the Run-Northwest, Dekalb County Community Gardens, and Adventure works of Dekalb County.
