Together, we grieve this loss.

Bill Ensuring Funding for Child Abuse Prevention Funding Heads to the Senate Floor

Bill Ensuring Funding for Child Abuse Prevention Funding

Heads to the Senate Floor

Rancho Cordova – This week, Assemblyman Ken Cooley’s AB 924 to re-establish the State Children’s Trust Fund as a donation option on state income tax forms heads to the Senate Floor.  AB 924 will reinstate the State tax form check-off box as a donation option, ensuring that the Fund will continue to support innovative and effective child abuse prevention programs across the state.

Currently, California taxpayers have the opportunity to pledge a portion of their expected tax return to charitable funds when filing their taxes. Each charitable fund’s listed check-off box location on the tax form is tied to a minimum contribution level adjusted annually for inflation. Failure of any tax check-off to meet the minimum contribution level results in that fund being repealed.
