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. In February of 2023, Wayne A. Brotherton stepped down, and his role as successor Co-Trustee was assumed by his daughter, Emily Milazzo of Florida. Both Bill and Emily carry on the fine tradition of charitable giving begun by Fred J. Brotherton.
