Wish List

Ways To Give

Donate online through CADA's Amazon Wish List! Our Amazon wish list makes it possible to donate in-kind goods from the comfort of your own home! 

CADA is a member of AmazonSmile! 

Did you know that a portion of your Amazon purchases can help support CADA? If you shop through, you can select a charitable organization to receive donations from eligible purchases before you begin shopping. We can be found under "Committee Against Domestic Abuse Inc" in Mankato. Make sure you use the AmazonSmile link each time you shop!


We are only accepting in-kind donations that have been pre-approved. This is to ensure the safety of the staff and clients, and to give staff a chance to make sure we have storage space to store your donation.  Please call Leticia at 507-625-8688 ext. 100 or email at  if you have any questions, or to have your donation preapproved.  Donations are accepted by appointment between the hours of 8:30 a.m. and 4 p.m. Monday through Friday.
