Charity Beneficiaries

Every year, the St. Patrick’s Day Parade committee choses a group of Douglas County area children’s charities as the beneficiaries of the funds we raise at a variety of fundraising events, all leading up to Parade Day. Once we have our beneficiaries selected, the work really begins. Charities are involved in every aspect of running our parade and the many charitable events we hold each year.

We will be accepting applications for 2025 later this year.

We have a complete list of the St. Pat's Beneficiaries since 1988!

From a past charity:

To say that we have already benefited from our experience with the Lawrence St. Patrick’s Day Parade Committee would be an understatement.  The committee and its “friends in the community” have shown Lawrence Youth Football and its family of friends what wonderful things that can happen when everyone works together for a common cause.  The effort put forth by your group is an amazing thing to see and ultimately be a part of.  We are forever grateful and thankful to be a benefactor of the Lawrence St. Patrick’s Day Parade Committee."
