Our Funding

Historically, the coalition has relied on a broad array of government sources for funding. PCADV board and staff recognizes that this over-reliance on government dollars needs to be replaced with a strategy that diversifies funding to include individual, foundation and corporate support. The ultimate goal is to realize private funding support of 25 percent of the coalition's work statewide.

Through a contract with the Pennsylvania Department of Human Services, the coalition brings in more than $25 million in state and federal dollars annually. Of this amount, 82 percent goes directly to the 60 local programs to support vital services.  PCADV monitors local programs for quality and assists advocates across the state with ongoing training and technical assistance.  

Anne Ard, Coalition Membership Chair

As the Executive Director of Centre County’s local domestic violence shelter and rape crisis program, I count on our connection to PCADV for support.  Not only do we receive direct financial support for our shelter and legal advocacy programs but being part of the Coalition keeps us connected to others who do this work.  We learn from one another, develop best practices, support one another during times of crisis, and know that when we raise our voice on behalf of battered women and their children we are a stronger, clearer voice as part of a broad-based Coalition.
