The Patterson Foundation is excited to welcome Alexa Carr, Avery Crews Prado de Lima and Andrew Spector of the Indiana University Lilly Family School of Philanthropy at IUPUI as the newest members of its Fellows Program. The incoming fifth cohort of TPF Fellows will apply their learnings from the school’s Master of Arts in Philanthropic Studies degree program during a year-long engagement designed to connect aspiring philanthropic leaders with opportunities to gain experience and learn innovative philanthropic principles while contributing to initiatives strengthening people, organizations and communities.
The Patterson Foundation, a fully endowed charitable entity in Sarasota, Florida, created the Fellows Program in partnership with the Lilly Family School of Philanthropy — the world’s first school dedicated solely to the study and teaching of philanthropy. Through the Fellows Program, graduates of the school’s master’s degree program can apply to work with The Patterson Foundation across several diverse initiatives while gaining the knowledge and insights that will help mold the next generation of community, corporate and private foundation leaders. Previous Fellows have launched careers with charitable foundations and nonprofit networks nationwide in leadership roles following their time with The Patterson Foundation.
