Because Childhood Lasts a Lifetime.

Giving Societies

Prevent Child Abuse America’s (PCA America) supporters are essential partners in prevention. They ensure that we can help families and children to thrive for generations to come. In part, we honor special donors through the following giving societies…

Partners in Prevention: Monthly Giving Program

Why give monthly? Recurring donations make it easier for us to focus on our work with families and plan ahead. In honor of PCA America’s 50th anniversary, you can support growing a better tomorrow for all children by giving $50 monthly.

Can’t afford to give $50 a month but still want to help? You can give any amount monthly—every gift helps in growing a better tomorrow! You can change or cancel at any time.
