The Denville Police Athletic League is a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that provides youth sport programs to the children of Denville Township. In addition to our sports programs, the PAL also sponsors other worthwhile community causes, such as the construction and/or renovation of community playgrounds. The Executive Board is comprised of members of the Denville Police Department and all of our sport directors and coaches are local volunteers.

2018 Fund Drive
Our Annual Fund Drive was set to begin in October. However, due to unexpected delays with our fundraising company, the mailer was not delivered until mid November. All residents will receive a mailer with information on the program along with a request to make a donation. This fundraiser is to help finance all of the administrative costs of running our various sports programs and to assist us in supporting our charitable programs. This is the only fundraiser that the PAL runs for this purpose. Over the past several years, the costs to run these programs have continued to rise while the donations used to pay for these costs have continued to decrease. We kindly request that you donate what you can so that we can continue to offer these programs without having to raise registration fees or having to make cut backs. Every dollar counts, so please help support us so that we can continue to support Denville's youth. Thank you for your support!
Note: The fund drive consists of two mailers. The second mailer is a reminder sent to anyone who did not respond to the original mailer. There was a delay in the 2017 reminders being mailed, causing many of them to be received in January/February of 2018. Any donations in response to that mailer that were made earlier this year were technically for our 2017 program. As we have once again experienced a delay, the 2018 reminders will not be sent until sometime in January of 2019. Once again, we want to point out that any donations received in response to the mailers are for our 2018 fund raising campaign. We apologize for any confusion and are working with out fundraising company to prevent this issue again in the future.
In addition, the Denville PAL does not solicit for donations via telephone. If you receive a phone call representing the Denville PAL and asking for a donation, we strongly suggest that you do not donate as any funds will not be forwarded to our program.
