CELEBRATING 30 YEARS OF SERVICE TO THE COMMUNITY

The Police Amateur Athletic Foundation (PAAF) was founded in 1978 and incorporated in 1980. This non-profit corporation was organized for the purpose of providing support for amateur athletics and athletic events in which San Jose Police Officers compete with the general public, thereby generating a greater person-to-person contact between police officers and the San Jose community they serve. PAAF’s membership includes over 500 San Jose Police Officers and non-sworn personnel and is overseen by a volunteer Board of Directors.

Over the past 20 years, PAAF has donated over $800,000 to various local charities. These charities include the East Valley Family YMCA, San Jose Police Activities League ( PAL ), Wish Upon A Star, Abrazos and Books, Special Olympics, the Boys and Girls Club of San Jose, the Central Coast Section ( CCS ) Scholarship Program, the San Jose Fire Department Burn Foundation, the Hershey’s City Wide Track and Field Meet, the San Jose High School Football Program, the San Jose Police Chaplaincy Program and the San Jose Giants Community Fund. The funds have been raised through membership dues, corporate donations and through various sporting events we host. Over the years, PAAF has hosted the Simpson / Silva Memorial Basketball Classic, the San Jose Police Memorial Softball Classic, The Caldarulo Cup / Memorial Hockey Classic and the Annual PAAF Charity Golf Tournament.

Since 2002, PAAF has been a major sponsor of several local events. These events include the PAAF Citywide & Statewide Youth Track and Field Meets, the Law Enforcement Torch Run and the Baker to Vegas Challenge Cup Relay. PAAF’s sponsorship of these events have made it possible for thousands of children to participate in these events free of charge. Some of the children would not have been able to participate without our help.
