Donor Advised fund (DAF)

A financial advisor may recommend setting up a DAF because of a tax event via a capital gain, inheritance or sale of a business. There are many benefits to donating to PAL via a DAF: immediate tax deduction, organizing mechanism for giving, time to make decisions and money that can grow tax free. A DAF also allows a donor to give non-cash assets an easier and less costly than setting up a private foundation (which are usually usded for larger amounts and for wealth preservation). Interested in learning more? Speak with your financial advisor about the next steps to give to PAL via a Donor Advised Fund.

Have a DAF set up already? You can give to The Police Athletic League through your DAF.


Do you have stocks that you would like to contribute? PAL can benefit from a donation of stocks at any time of the year! Ask your financial advisor about how to make a donation of stocks to PAL.

Matching GIfts

If you make a gift to PAL, your company may match your donation. If so, that could double your gift to PAL! Some companies also have donations and matches that can be directly donated through their giving programs. Speak with your company's human resources manager about matching gifts to PAL.

The 1914 Club for monthly giving

As a monthly donor, you will join a group of supporters who are helping The Police Athletic League continue its mission which began in NYC in 1914. It was then Police Commissioner Woods who organized a city-wide search for vacant lots to be converted into playgrounds, to help reduce tensions between young people and the police. Over 100 years later, your monthly gifts are helping PAL continue this same mission with a new generation of young people and police officers in New York City.

By giving monthly to PAL, you will become a member of the 1914 Club for Monthly Giving. Other benefits include:

  • A contact to help with any questions or information
  • Special invitations to PAL events
  • 5 and 10 year supporters receive special recognition
  • Quarterly e-newsletter
