Fred J. Brotherton
The original Trustee of the Foundation, Fred J. Brotherton, was the owner of a prominent construction firm in New Jersey, his home state. A longtime philanthropist and supporter of education, the arts, religious institutions, historic preservation and medical research, Mr. Brotherton established the Fred J. Brotherton Charitable Foundation as a Florida trust in 1997. Throughout a long and productive life, Mr. Brotherton served as Board Member of several foundations and non-profit organizations in New Jersey, New York and Florida. Upon his death in December 2002, Mr. Brotherton’s role as Trustee was assumed by successor Co-Trustees William P. Brotherton, M.D. and Wayne A. Brotherton. Also New Jersey natives, both Co-Trustees live in the northeast and carry on the fine tradition of charitable giving begun by Fred J. Brotherton.
