On Wednesday, Kentucky Attorney General Jack Conway unveiled a newly designed Website created for the Child Victims’ Trust Fund.

The Attorney General’s Office said the updated and user-friendly Website gives Kentuckians better access to information about the CVTF’s child sexual abuse prevention initiatives and the resources that are available to them.

The Website also allows Kentuckians to donate to the fund.

“Statistics show that 1 in 10 children in the United States will be sexually abused before they turn 18,” General Conway said.

“The effects of this abuse are devastating on a child and can last a lifetime. By increasing awareness about the CVTF and its importance through ICareAboutKids.ky.gov, we can better educate Kentuckians and continue funding the necessary programs that serve kids across our Commonwealth.”

In addition to the CVTF Website unveiling, Attorney General Conway announced that a public service announcement encouraging Kentuckians to support the CVTF through the Kentucky Income Tax Refund Check-Off campaign would begin airing this week on radio and TV stations across the Commonwealth.

Located in the “Fund Contributions” section of the Kentucky income tax form, the tax refund check-off allows Kentuckians to make a tax-deductible donation to the fund.

“I hope you will join me in checking off the box to donate a portion of your tax refund to the CVTF,” General Conway said. “Your contribution goes a long way to help support evidence-based programs that fight child abuse in Kentucky and protect our most vulnerable children.”

Along with the Kentucky Income Tax Refund Check-Off and now online donations, CVTF prevention activities and child advocacy programs are funded through private donations and proceeds from the “I Care About Kids” license plates.
