Independence From Government Funding
Neither the National Association to Protect Children nor PROTECT seek or accept government funding. This principle is enshrined in our bylaws. This enables both organizations to set our priorities based solely on what we believe will have the greatest impact on the protection of children. It also ensures that we can aggressively fight for child protection and law enforcement resources without any real or perceived conflict of interest.
