Our belief and vision is that Kassie’s light will never extinguish; it can and will carry-on through the young people in our community who are inspired to mirror her lifelong philanthropic heart. Kassie’s zeal to make God loved, known and served will be honored by funding the following three branches, all in the name of Kassie Braun:

  • Construction of the Kassie Braun Memorial Catholic Girls School in Abakiliki, Nigeria opening in Fall 2019

  • Annual grants and need-based tuition assistance funds to Cathedral High School, Indianapolis, Indiana

  • Annual study abroad scholarship through St Edwards University in Austin, Texas

Overall, our long-term goal and commitment is to raise $3,500,000 to fully fund the school scholarships in the U.S. as well as the completion of the Kassie Braun Memorial Schools on the other side of the globe.

All donations are tax deductible.

An acknowledgement letter for your donation, with our nonprofit’s tax exempt ID number, will be mailed to you following our event. (The tax exempt ID number for KassieKares, Inc. #82-5264150.)

Kassie Kares - email header August 2019


Kassandra “Kassie” Arielle Braun lived a vibrant life but also rejoiced in life’s simple pleasures. Like the simple and “little way” modeled by her chosen confirmation Saint Therese of Lisieux, the “Little Flower”.  Her life serves as an example for all of us to do little things with great love. Kassie embodied otherness versus selfishness and never met a stranger. In her short life, Kassie’s boundless soul eagerly traveled the world to touch as many people as she could with her joy and love. Like Kassie, we can give of our time, heart, treasure to help people in need of a smiling face, a warm meal, a hug, a roof over their head, a scholarship to travel the world and meet people far and wide and be an ambassador of love as Kassie was.
