Sean Greeley, 57, of Rumson, was charged yesterday with stealing more than $25,000 from the Rumson Fair Haven Touchdown Club, a non-profit entity that was established to raise funds to support, develop, and promote High School and Youth Football in Rumson and Fair Haven, according to a statement by Monmouth County Prosecutor Christopher J. Gramiccioni.

The former president of the non-profit with control of all its accounts, Greeley is alleged to have used the club’s debit card for personal use between April 2017 and July 2018.

During the investigation that started last August, investigators learned that Greeley admitted to taking the funds.

If convicted of third degree theft, Greeley faces up to five years in a New Jersey state prison.

  1. Hey, legislators; said at 7:42 pm on January 31st, 2019:

    While you quibble about stuff that either makes us pay more, or changes nothing, why not do a law stating that all these booster groups, non- profits, even first did squads, or pta’s, have to show that they have more than one officer/pair of eyes on everybody’s books- and, has to submit annual financial statements to one of the many oversight state departments, so that there are less incentives or temptations, to raid these accounts! There are too many of these problems, and who suffers? The kids ( mostly,) or group, they supposedly work to support!

    I think the point is is that a 57 year old man should not be tempted to steal.

  3. The main point is, said at 9:43 am on February 4th, 2019:

    people have and are, and will be tempted: sometimes, more oversight is a good thing. In the case of some of these booster groups, we have seen that too many leaders seem to think of those treasuries as their own: some of them will “borrow” funds, because it is too easy to do. ( read, no one else is watching.) It winds up that some have personal or financial problems, and may think they will sometime pay it back, but often, they don’t/ can’t. Then, trust is broken, kids learn a sad lesson, and some lives are ruined. Outside audits, and more forced accountability, can stop these unfortunate, but real,tendencies..
