~Mission Statement~

The Thompson Brothers 4 The Future Foundation was created to inspire youth by encouraging the benefits of an active and healthy lifestyle while promoting the attributes of the student-athlete. Its focus will be on creating programs for indigenous and underserved communities where lacrosse meets culture in an effort to create community-based opportunities that provide a pathway for the next generation to achieve their dreams.

The Thompson Brothers - 4 the Future Foundation

4 The Future Foundation Founders

Over the course of their record-breaking careers, the Thompson Brothers have revolutionized the modern game of lacrosse by incorporating their cultural connection to the game and playing the fierce style created by their ancestors. The collective success of this lacrosse family is due in large part to a strong work ethic, discipline and commitment to excellence. These pillars of success have also translated into their educational accomplishments at the University level and will be building blocks of the student-athlete concept that the Thompsons seek to teach through their non-profit work. The Thompson Brothers have chosen Gayle Kelley to serve as the organization’s first Executive Director. Gayle’s expertise includes the areas of education, non-profit, government affairs, program development and entertainment. The Thompson Brothers understand that Gayle’s remarkable record of service will allow her to create programs, services and concepts that reflect the dynamic lives and careers of the 4 The Foundation Founders. Gayle has a deep passion for sports and in particular the indigenous sport of lacrosse saying, “I am pleased and honored to serve as the first Executive Director of the 4 The Future Foundation. I look forward to working with the Thompson Brothers and Board of Directors in supporting their guiding principles and setting the organization on a course to fulfill the Foundation’s Mission.”

“Hiring Gayle Kelley was an easy decision based on her credentials, experience, and our mutual vision for the future.”
