The Pat Burgess Team is not only committed to finding the perfect home for their clients, they are committed to investing in the neighborhoods they serve. Whether it be through volunteering for local or national organizations, coordinating community events for local families, empowering women to collectively work together and raise funds for charities in need or volunteering their time for the betterment of the local community, The Pat Burgess Team makes it a priority to give back.
Leading the team and setting the example of the importance of giving back is Pat herself, who from a young age has volunteered her time for the betterment of others. Her charitable and volunteering efforts span a lifetime with some of the most notable being her time at the Ronald McDonald House after college, traveling with her son to Mexico to help build homes for the poor and her development of “The Children’s Water Foundation” in Ghana through her Church. The impact that each of these experiences has had on her has lasted a lifetime and is the foundation for why it is so important for The Pat Burgess Team to continue serving the community.
Rotary is a huge part of Pat's life. Our motto is “Service Above Self” and we work tirelessly to make this world a better place both locally and around the world: food drives, clothes drives, building schools for the less fortunate, working with the local schools, supporting our Troops overseas, eradicating Polio…the list is endless. Pat is proud to have been the President of the Danville-Sycamore Club as well as the Community Service Chairperson for several years and Membership Chairperson.
Pat started “Divorce Angels” after personally going through a crushing divorce. She promised God that if she made it through, she would help others. This is such a debilitating experience. It is hard to know who to turn to for the right answers. “Divorce Angels” is made up of a group of professionals who volunteer their time monthly to provide practical solutions to tough questions. These professionals include an Attorney, CPA, Financial Planner, MFT Therapist, Home Organizer, and Mortgage Broker.
Pat is honored and humbled to be a co-founder of Impact 100 East Bay, an amazing group of talented women who are making an extraordinary impact within our community, focusing on the unmet needs within Contra Costa and Alameda Counties.
Helping our local community is of the utmost importance to Pat. She loves the town of Danville, so several years ago she got involved with the Danville Area Chamber of Commerce. Pat was asked to sit on the Board and more recently was named Chairman of the Board.
