Veterans' Trust Fund

Act 194 0f 2012 implemented the Veterans' Trust Fund.  The Veterans' Trust Fund is a special, non-lapsing state fund that can pursue multi-year innovative programs for our veterans.  The Trust Fund is funded from various sources including:

  • A transfer of $1.7 million to fund veterans' services and veterans' outreach services upon the sale of surplus real property.
  • Voluntary $3 check-offs from purchases of drivers' licenses and vehicle registrations.
  • The proceeds from a new special "Honoring our Veterans" license plate.
  • Other donations, contributions and possible future appropriations.

The Veterans' Trust Fund is a state fund under the jurisdiction of the Department of Military and Veterans Affairs.  It is important to contrast this official fund from the Pennsylvania Veterans Foundation, which is a private, non-profit, IRS-recognized charitable organization.
