use of funding

The PEC needs funds to conduct a strategic marketing campaign to enlighten congressional delegations, media and the American public on the value of Picatinny and how Picatinny’s mission can be enhanced.

Picatinny Arsenal has been in existence since 1749 when the Middle Forge was established on the base of Picatinny Peak in NJ. It is responsible for over 90% of the lethality on the battlefield and supports all branches of the military yet Picatinny Arsenal is hardly a household name. Ask residents of NJ and many don't know what or even where Picatinny is. The American public has very little concept of just how much Picatinny has contributed to – and continues to contribute – to our Nation’s defense. PEC’s mission is to educate the public and government on this very issue.
