our Founding friends &
our community's emerging leaders
The Founding Friends are a collection of over 80 young adults who want to make a difference in people’s lives. Many of these friends are lifelong friends of Patrick and the Brett Family. These friendships meant the world to Patrick, and clearly he meant the world to them, too, as they are willing to share their time, treasure, and talent with the foundation.
Following our Mission Statement, The Patrick Brett Foundation is offering guidance to and helping to develop each of our Founding Friends' leadership skills, knowing that their leadership skills will encourage positive change in our community. They are given opportunities to learn the basics of running a non profit organization, become comfortable with the decorum needed to serve on a Board of Directors, become familiar with Parliamentary Procedure, master the skills of collaboration and networking, and develop their skills at hosting fundraising events. These leadership skills will follow our Founding Friends from their experience in Patrick Brett Foundation though life.
While many of our Founding Friends are just entering into the world of community leadership, others come to the foundation having practiced these skills. President and Vice President of the Junior League, Founder and Chair of the PCA Tampa Bay Mentor Program, Chair Elect for Leadership St. Pete, Vice Chair of the Florida Federation of Young Republicans, are just a sampling of the way our Founding Friends are using their leadership skills in the community. These seasoned leaders are sharing their talents with their fellow Founding Friends, leading them down the leadership path.
