Child Abuse Prevention Fund

The Child Abuse Prevention Fund provides financial support for prevention activities in Wisconsin to help ensure a safe environment for children and educate professionals and the public about the role of prevention in eliminating child abuse.

The fund was created to combat the growing number of child abuse cases. From the start, we recognized the only true way to wipe out child abuse was through prevention - keeping child abuse from happening in the first place. Since 1988, the organization has distributed more than $10 million to support community-based child abuse prevention initiatives throughout Wisconsin.
