Pat Potts, President

Potts Family Foundation


Pat Potts, MBA, co-founded the Community Resource Development Foundation and serves as president of its successor, the Potts Family Foundation (PFF). She also founded the Oklahoma Center for Nonprofits and served as president and CEO for over 20 years. Pat was also a founder of the Oklahoma Women's Coalition Association. 

Pat has also served as president on the Oklahoma City School Board, Oklahoma City Beautiful, the Zoo Trust, and the Society of Fund Raising Executives. She currently serves on the boards for the Oklahoma Women's Coalition, Sunbeam Foundation, the Metro Tech Foundation and the Educare Center. 

Pat was recently honored as one of the Journal Record's "Women of the Year" in 2012. 

Pat says she believes in leveraging resources "to address root causes and build the human potential of the people of our state."

Note: Many of us know Ray and Pat Potts, an amazing couple together and as individuals. They have contributed and continue to contribute so much to Oklahoma City and Oklahoma. In tribute to both, we are adding a photo and a quote we found. Kudos to Ray & Pat!

"Married: June 18, 1955. 'Besides the love of a lifetime, we've been best friends, and I think that's part of what makes it work,' she said. Children: Steve, Mark, Larry and Paula Anderson; eight grandchildren."

  • Pediatric Diabetes Research - Oklahoma

    Read how Kiwanis International focused on this Oklahoma's efforts.Oklahoma Kiwanis Clubs have supported Children's Hospital Foundation for pediatric diabetes research for some time. One of the fundraisers, the Sonny Bright Duck Race, named for our state's most ardent leader in supporting this research, is held each May. Oklahoma Kiwanis Clubs have raised much more, but we like this "throw-back" feature.
