Party Parade 2020

Welcome to the Party Parade Website.

Party Parade will continue to give
small grants to local charities in 2020.

Deadline for Proposals : March 20, 2020


In the last 30 years, Party Parade has contributed over $1,000,000 to community charities in the area.  Party Parade has also created awareness of the goals, programs, and needs of the charities it has supported.

We are grateful to the community and to the hosts and guests who have generously supported Party Parade.  Please accept our heartfelt thanks for making Party Parade a success over the past 30 years.
We will continue to support local charities. We hope that those of you who have supported Party Parade in the past will continue to do so.


The Party Parade Fund

The Party Parade Fund was created in 1998, the tenth anniversary of Party Parade. Since that time, it has awarded small grants to many local charities for projects that might otherwise have fallen through the gaps.  The Fund's recipients in 2017 were:

Ready Kids:
To support their Play Partners program to provide a year's worth of weekly literacy services to low income children.

Quickstart Tennis of Central Virginia
To implement the BrightSTARS tennis program for disadvantaged and at-risk preschoolers in three schools in Albemarle County, introducing kids to a lifetime sport and healthy eating.

Elk Hill
To provide support for a scholarship for Elk Hill's Charlottesville summer camp.
