United Way East Ontario
Through over 30 years of building and preserving wealth, some of Thom's most rewarding work has been contributing back to his community. He was recently appointed to the Board of Directors with United Way East Ontario where he works with the local communities to break down barriers, improve lives, and create opportunities for the people who need it most. With a population of over one-million people, our nation’s capital is home to a diverse and vibrant mix of neighbourhoods, each with their own set of social challenges. Thom is excited to work with individuals, agencies, companies and government leaders to change lives in Ottawa.
As they are committed to 100% local impact, every dollar invested stays in the community where it was raised, where it is needed most and will have the greatest impact for our communities’ most vulnerable people. United Way East Ontario also ranked second on Maclean’s top 100 list of Canada’s best charities for 2020 and made the top of the 2020 MoneySense Charity 100 list, which analyzes the transparency and efficiency of Canadian charities.
