Who We Are

Since 1922, we have built a reputation for seeking out what needs to be done to help our children and our community, working together and making each project a reality. Our members are community leaders who proudly believe our organization is the absolute best opportunity to get engaged in the community and make a positive difference. That is how we help build a better way of life and a better Bradenton.
The Foundation was formed in 1998 as a result of the vision of a select group of Club leaders. The Club developed and operated the Bradenton Trailer Park, one of the largest trailers parks in the world, from 1936 to 1997. The formation of the Foundation was to receive the net proceeds from the Park and then utilize the interest income from the proceeds to benefit local nonprofit organizations. The Bradenton Trailer Park was sold for $8.8 million in 1997 with the Foundation receiving the proceeds. The Foundation has provided the community with over $7.2 million touching and improving the lives of Bradenton’s young people.
