The Port Washington Police Athletic League Needs Your Help


If you are reading this plea, it is because we believe that you have a direct connection to PW PAL. It is possible that you or your child benefited from one of our programs, learned the fundamentals of sports and sportsmanship, gained insights into the game or just enjoyed a clean healthy way to spend time after school or on weekends. It is equally possible in our 70 (SEVENTY) year history your parents played here maybe even your grandparents. We are proud of the long list of families and individuals that became part of our PAL family. Unfortunately, now we must turn to you and ask for some help. Our facilities are in need of immediate improvements and repairs. We don’t have the funds in our budget to make some critical fixes. Now, we need your help. We are asking anyone and everyone who appreciates what we provide to the community or anyone who just has it within their hearts to support a really good kids program to make some kind of contribution. While our needs are great, no donation is too small (or too big).


As most of you already are aware, the Port Washington Police Athletic League, is a 501 (c) (3) not for profit organization that has been in continuous operation since 1948. 100% of your tax deductible donations will directly benefit the children of the community. We keep our registration fees to a bare minimum (and in many cases offer registration on a full scholarship basis to families that can’t afford to make a financial commitment).


We affirm that all funds raised will go directly to needed capital improvements. You should also know, all our directors are volunteers and serve the children and community with no compensation whatsoever. As Director of the program, I have spent 5+ years as the Volunteer Director of PW PAL. My personal wish is to leave a lasting legacy of a safe place for kids to congregate, learn and play. It is why I devote my time and energies to this cause.


For those of you who are so inclined, please go to knowing that any amount (no matter how large or small) is greatly appreciated.
