John Ferguson joined The Patterson Foundation as a fellow in April 2020. His fellowship will consist of managing multiple special projects across several different initiatives to provide strategic value and further innovation.
John received his degree from the Indiana University Lilly Family School of Philanthropy, the world's first school dedicated solely to the study and teaching of philanthropy. He was named Chancellor's Scholar for his graduating class and now serves on the Alumni Board for the school.
He spent the last three years with Indiana United Ways in a variety of roles dedicated to supporting all local United Ways throughout Indiana. Previous to that, John was in hospitality for more than 18 years in a myriad of roles, including trainer and manager. He is passionate about helping people and organizations thrive.
John is a huge Chicago Cubs fan and can generally be found at a baseball game or a concert when not working. He is excited to explore Sarasota and connect with his new community.
