Mission Statement

The Parady Cares Foundation Inc. makes a profound and sustaining impact in the lives of children, veterans, senior citizens, and others in need.


Our Foundation has an ongoing relationship with local elementary schools to provide resources and support for student enrichment. In addition, we support local youth organizations such as the Sumter County Youth, Project Legacy and the Boys & Girls Club.


Veteran groups such as The Villages Honor Flight, Vietnam Veterans of America, Combat Veterans to Careers and Project SOS include Veterans from all branches of our Military. Our efforts are designed to honor and support them.


The Parady Cares Foundation strives to help the members of our community maintain a healthy lifestyle. We merge our efforts with groups such as Alzheimer’s Family Organization, The Village Angels for Autism and Breast Cancer Awareness Groups.


Our Foundation friends are passionate about family and generously donate to our annual campaigns. As a result, we are able to provide less fortunate families with the basic necessities of food, clothing, and shoes, along with specialty items during the Holiday Season.


Supporting Exceptional Student Education (ESE) and meeting the physical, mental and emotional needs of individuals of all ages is important to the Foundation. Our resources provide funds for therapy and educational tools they otherwise might not be able to obtain.

“Mike and I wish to express our feelings of privilege that we were able to assist today at the Veterans Golf Outing at Golden Ocala. A Parady Cares event is always done with such class and a purpose. The fact that Parady Cares raises funds for as many worthwhile causes makes us proud to be a part of it all.”
