Terri McKinnon is the friendly person who answers the phone when you call the Charitable Foundation, and who helps you when you come to our door.
Terri is also an artist, and she has donated a piece of her artwork to Court Appointed Special Advocates of New Hampshire to be featured on greeting cards to helps raise funds for and awareness of their good work.
CASA is a nonprofit whose volunteer advocates represent the interests of abused and neglected children in New Hampshire’s courts. Last year, CASA of New Hampshire volunteers helped more than 1,200 of New Hampshire’s most vulnerable children.
Terri’s piece “Heading Home” is featured on one of six holiday/winter-themed cards that are available to purchase to support CASA’s work. (Custom imprints and photos can be added to the cards when you order). CASA also has a beautiful collection of all-season cards by New Hampshire artists and photographers.
What a beautiful way for your holiday greetings to also help New Hampshire’s kids.

In New Hampshire, according to a recent American Institutes for Research report, “The highest poverty school districts have the lowest student outcomes. The negative relationship between poverty and outcomes is very strong.” The Charitable Foundation is supporting two nonprofit organizations that are addressing these issues: Reaching Higher New Hampshire and the New Hampshire School Funding Fairness project. Because all students in New Hampshire should have equal access to educational opportunity so they can thrive in school, graduate and grow into adults who are able to help sustain New Hampshire’s communities and economy.
