The Fellowship of Fathers Foundation (FoFF) was founded in 2011 by the Honourable Gregory Slayton, along with his beloved wife, Marina, to help strengthen fatherhood, families, and faith in the United States and around the world.
Growing up without a natural father, Mr. Slayton is keenly aware of the impact fatherhood has in a family and society. For over 30 years, Mr. Slayton delved into the study of fatherhood practices on five different continents while raising a young family of four children with his wife. The Slaytons had a deep sense of conviction that fatherhood, family and faith are the 3 most important pillars of a civil society, and hence, the Foundation was established.
Mr. Slayton serves as the Chairman of the Foundation and devotes much of his time to the work on a pro-bono basis. He is currently the Managing Director of Slayton Capital.
From 2005 through 2009, Mr. Slayton was the US Chief of Mission to Bermuda under President George W. Bush and Barack Obama. For his service, Mr. Slayton received the Distinguished Foreign Service Award jointly from members of the Congressional Black Caucus and House/Senate Republican Leadership. It is notable that Mr. Slayton is the only Republican diplomat in history to be given the DFSA from these organizations jointly.
