Mission Statement

To provide underprivileged families with limited resources on Aquidneck Island, the funds necessary for their children to participate in activities that will enhance their development and promote positive community experiences. We are in the process of expanding the scope of our mission to include other underprivileged youth throughout New England.

Description

The Derrick Cazard Foundation began to formally organize as the Derrick Cazard Memorial Fund in the fall of 2008. The organization evolved as a direct result of our love, memories, and devotion to a vibrant and charismatic young man who tragically lost his life in an accidental drowning on June 30, 2008. This bright and empathetic young man had a special love and place in his heart for children. Especially vulnerable and underprivileged children whom he felt could go much further in life if they had access to more opportunities. This dedication developed early in life when he began babysitting and taking on more of a role as a mentor. In honor of his social concerns and outspoken nature, his friends and loved ones developed this organization in his name.

The manifest mission of this organization is to provide underprivileged/low income families with limited resources, funds for their children to participate in activities that will enhance their development and promote positive community experiences. There is however; a latent mission in our organization. We are an innovative group of people with a majority of highly energetic and creative young adults.

So far, this aspect of foundation goals seems to be working well. Our development will be evaluated and steps established for improvement as we undergo future transitions.

We are in the process of expanding the scope of our mission to include other underprivileged youth throughout New England.
