The Children’s Trust Fund (CTF) recently participated in the Missouri State Employees Charitable Campaign statewide kickoff festivities for 2008. The theme of this year’s campaign is Show Me You Care. The annual event provides state employees with one unified fund raising campaign to contribute to charitable organizations from across the state.
CTF is one of many non-profit organizations and charities in which state employees can choose to designate a portion of their income. This campaign is critical to CTF’s prevention efforts since the organization receives no general revenue funds. Contributions assist CTF with providing grants to community organizations that prevent child abuse/neglect and create awareness to the importance of strong families and keeping children safe.
