Penn State Puts $2-Million Toward Child Abuse Awareness

Penn State football bowl revenue this year will reach at least $2 million, $500,000 more than the amount the school promised last week would be donated to charities to raise awareness of child abuse issues.
  

School president Rodney Erickson said Tuesday the additional revenue will go toward helping establish a Penn State institute that would work in the treatment and prevention of child abuse.
  

Erickson has vowed to make Penn State a leader in raising awareness of such issues following allegations against retired assistant coach Jerry Sandusky that have tarnished the school’s image. Sandusky is due in court next week on charges of sexually abusing eight boys over a 15-year span. He denies molesting the boys.
  

Penn State typically funnels the bowl revenue back to the athletic department.
