Grant Making

The Vision of Hope Fund is now accepting Letters of Inquiry for the 2015-16 Vision of Hope Grant.

PCAR launched the fund in July 2005 to battle child sexual abuse by funding innovation in child sexual abuse prevention and intervention.

We prioritize critical research, effective prevention strategies, teaching adult responsibility and accountability, and supporting services to children who have been sexually victimized.

A total of $50,000 is available to fund one or more projects during the fiscal year 2015-16. Awards are contingent on the availability of funding and are subject to approval of the PCAR/NSVRC Chief Executive Officer.

One-year grants will be awarded. The grant is for activities to be conducted during the period July 1, 2015 through June 30, 2016.

Eligible applicants include public agencies (including state agencies, units of local government, public universities and colleges) and private organizations (including faith- and community-based organizations) conducting grant activities, including 501(c)(3), LEA (local education agencies), individual researchers or research organizations.

Ineligible projects include international proposals, funding for new personnel positions, funding to replication an existing project that is already being used elsewhere.

Applicants must provide documentation of 501(c)(3) determination, and be registered with the Pennsylvania Bureau of Charitable Organizations or able to provide a description of the reason they are exempt from BCO registration.

A limited number of submissions will be chosen to complete a full grant application. Deadline to submit your Letter of Inquiry is October 17, 2014.
