CASA of Oregon also offers the VIDA Individual Development Account (IDA) program,  Matched College Savings Program (MCSP), and E3 – Earn, Educate, Empower to help students pay for school.

  • The VIDA program allows eligible participants to save up to $3000 and receive up to $9000 in matching grant funds that can be used towards tuition, fees, and school supplies. For more information go to www.vidaoregon.org or email us at ida@casaoforegon.org.
  • MCSP is a matched savings account (also known as an individual development account, or IDA) for current and future students to pursue post-secondary education. The MCSP program is currently available to residents of Oregon and Washington to attend participating educational institutions. Based on its sister program VIDA, a collaborative of agencies offering access to individual development accounts to their constituents, the MCSP College Initiative partners directly with post-secondary educational institutions instead of with non-profit agencies and housing authorities, as in a traditional individual development account partnership. CASA of Oregon serves as the administrator and fiduciary organization of both the MCSP College Initiative and the VIDA Collaborative. If you are a student interesting in learning more about MCSP, please contact the IDA Team at 503-625-0792 or via ida@casaoforegon.org
  • E3 is an innovative, need-based financial aid program that pairs resources with eligible students pursuing a college education at one of Oregon’s leading private colleges and universities. E3 makes college more affordable by matching savings at a 8:1 ratio, giving students a total of $4,500 to use for tuition or approved educational expenses per enrollment year! For more information go to http://e3savings.org/ or email lupita@casaoforegon.org.
