McGrady helped found the Native American Partnership at Bethany First Church of the Nazarene and later began a non-profit foundation named after his father Paul J. McGrady Sr.  The foundation focuses on serving and supporting compassionate ministries that feed and help provide for the poor, homeless and those with addictions.  In four years of existence the foundation has gifted $50,000 to churches and Christian organizations in support of its mission statement.  "As the young son of a BNC Professor in 1962, I came to understand the special mission of making Christ like disciples at SNU. Over fifty years later, I still have a huge belief and support for the mission of making Christ like disciples at SNU.  I have been extremely blessed to serve over 33 years at SNU and my wife Dana and I are very proud that our two children Chris Ann and Garrett are SNU graduates."
