About the Foundation

Founded in 2012, the Phoenix Foundation of Central Florida is a scholarship granting foundation.

The Phoenix Foundation of Central Florida was established in 2012 by Patrick Tubbs, who has deep roots in Central Florida.  He grew up in Brevard County, attended public schools on Merritt Island and graduated from the University of Central Florida. Patrick believes in the transformative power of education and has seen first-hand how furthering one’s education can dramatically change a person’s life. To that end, he has established this scholarship foundation as a way to reach out and offer a helping hand to students who otherwise may not be able to improve and restart their lives. Each of the scholarships provided has a specific connection to Patrick’s life.

The mission of the Phoenix Foundation of Central Florida is to afford young people the opportunity to recreate
 themselves while pursuing their educational goals.
As education is the key to changing society, the Phoenix Foundation supports them in this endeavor.


The Phoenix Foundation is a tax exempt 501(c)(3) organization.
