Donations to the California Domestic Violence Victims Fund directly support domestic violence programs. The money raised will be distributed by the Office of Emergency Services to non-profit domestic violence programs all across California.
The California Domestic Violence Victims Fund is included in your tax forms as a voluntary contribution line item. It is on Form 540, Side 4, Line 14, Code 433.
We need your help to remain on the tax form! Our state must raise a minimum of $250,000 in donations through voluntary tax contributions each year. If every taxpayer donates just $20, we will reach the $250,000 threshold in no time!

Every year Gazette Newspapers, their staff and their readers truly make miracles happen.
There are no words to express how deeply thankful we are for the dedication shown by Gazette Newspapers and staff to our agency, our programs and most of all our clients year in and year out.
You fill us with joy and hope and drive us to continue our mission helping as many people as we can end the cycle of violence.
This annual card drive allows us the flexibility to be able to help our clients in ways that we otherwise wouldn’t have the funding to do. We can’t thank you enough.
We wish you all a wonderful holiday season and a fantastic 2017!
