Other Ways You Can Help:
Fund a Scholarship:
It costs us $1,600 to provide a full year of safety and support to one child. The majority of youth that we serve are low-income and underserved by other programs and services. Our services are offered free of charge. This is made possible by gifts and grants. A contribution of any amount helps bridge the gap between the experiences most kids expect and what California PAL kids can only hope for without you.
Many companies will match the contributions that you make to an organization. If you make a donation, please let us know if your company has a matching gifts program. If you are not sure, contact your company and/or organization's Human Resources or Community Affairs office.
Host a House Party:
Surprisingly, many people in the community are not familiar with the programs that California PAL offers today. A fun way for people to help us raise awareness is to host a house party at their home and invite friends to learn about how California PAL is helping the youth...
Leave a Bequest:
All of us have the power to make a difference. One way is to include the California Police Activities League in your will and/or estate plans.
