Welcome to the
Parrish Charitable Foundation
We are setting the groundwork, for a philanthropic organization that has a solid financial foundation. We want this charity to be around for decades. Now, we have a global footprint, and we envision continued growth. We are making a difference in communities where we do business, and in communities not in our marketplace. We are providing a “Way Up and a Way Out” for youth in underserved communities.
“Your Vision must be greater than the window you are looking thru.”
~ Jay-Z [Entertainer & Business Mogul]
Nationally, donations are made during the year through in-kind and financial contributions to churches, non- profits, families and individuals in the Dallas/Ft. Worth, Texas area.
Some of the foundation’s initiatives include: Sponsorship of faith based and non-profit events, food donations, annual Pastoral Prayer breakfasts, and annual bicycle, helmet and Bible give-a-ways for children in need during the Christmas holiday season. Endowments are also made to colleges and universities.
Internationally, 16,000+ orphaned children of HIV/AIDS infected parents are treated annually for common ailments and treatable diseases at the John and Marie Parrish Medical Clinic in Ft. Portal, Uganda.
The clinic, named after the father and mother of Roland Parrish, is largely funded in part by the PARRISH CHARITABLE FOUNDATION.
