Reasons to donate today!

When you give to STAR/PAL you can be confident that your funds are being managed and applied responsibly, and serving a great cause. By minimizing our fundraising and administration costs, we ensure that the biggest percentage of our budget is allocated to programming that directly serves our mission. 

With over 80% of our funding dedicated to our youth programs, you can be sure that your contribution is making a difference to support, inspire, and encourage youth, build relationships between law enforcement and kids, and to build lasting bonds that strengthen our community.

  • San Diego Police Department
  • San Diego County Probation Department
  • National PAL
  • SDG&E
  • The Zable Foundation
  • The Parker Foundation
  • City Council Community Projects, Programs, and Service
  • A variety of individual donors
