The Palm Beach County PBA Charity Fund was established in 2004 to assist our members and their children with scholarships to defray the costs of higher education. In addition, the Charity Fund now helps provide charitable assistance to our members and their families who have experienced a life altering tragedy or a catastrophic event.
The PBA Charity Fund, Inc. has helped many children. It is a federally
