ANKENY, Iowa , August 2, 2023 (press release) –

In-store giving campaign will raise funds for K-12 schools in the 16 states where Casey’s operates

Casey’s is kicking off its in-store giving campaign to support America’s future generation of leaders. Starting today through September 5, Casey’s guests can round up their purchases each time they visit a Casey’s store and join the cause that has raised $3 million for students, families and educators since 2020.

“Learning is the foundation to sparking curiosity and creating brighter futures for kids. Through our Cash for Classrooms program, we’re helping bring meaningful projects and innovative initiatives to life, in Casey’s communities now and for years to come,” said Katie Petru, Director, Communications and Community at Casey’s. “With the generosity of Casey’s guests each year at the register and our partnership with LIFEWTR, we fuel our mission to help improve the lives of students and educators in our local communities.”

Casey’s, together with its generous guests and LIFEWTR, have raised $1 million annually in the last three years, awarding grants to more than 250 schools across its 16-state footprint. In 2022, 79 grants were awarded to K-12 public and nonprofit, private schools in 75 Casey’s communities.

The funding priorities through the program include projects supporting physical improvements, material needs, teacher support and community engagement initiatives in Casey’s communities. Cash for Classroom grants help drive positive change, including:

  • Better reading resources: St. Francis Area Schools in Minnesota received a $10,000 grant to provide take-home decodable books to foster enthusiasm and develop better reading skills for its students.
  • Building foundations with modern technology: Athens Community School District in Illinois received $20,000 to provide their fourth-grade students with new smartboards, helping their students build foundational skills for life-long technological literacy.
  • Making enrichment and learning accessible: Bonnie Grimes Elementary School in Arkansas received a $50,000 grant to purchase and install an all-inclusive, ADA accessible playground, giving students of all abilities the opportunity to interact and play with their peers at school.
  • Expanding minds and facilities: Riverfield Country Day School inOklahoma received a $10,000 grant to expand and better facilities for their arts and athletics programs, meeting the needs of its growing student population.

Every dollar raised by Casey’s guests helps provide funds for schools located in Casey’s communities across 16 states. Learn more about Cash for Classrooms at the Casey’s blog and head over to for more information about the company’s community impact.
