Check Off Child Abuse

Children’s Trust Fund – Missouri’s Foundation for Child Abuse Prevention

The Tax Check-off Program provides a way for Missourians to support CTF and our mission to prevent child abuse and neglect. When the Children’s Trust Fund (CTF) was established in 1983, the General Assembly determined that general revenue from the State of Missouri would not be appropriated to fund its activities. It was determined that the Tax Check-off Program would serve as the primary source of funding where donations to CTF could be made by the public on their state income tax returns.
