Tom Leydiker, a seasoned executive and investor in the financial services industry, has an extensive background in philanthropic work. As someone who has always had an enterprising spirit, Tom is currently building his first entrepreneurial venture in the nonprofit sector: Tom Leydiker Foundation.
ABOUT THE FOUNDATION
Founded in November of 2016, Tom Leydiker Foundation is a charitable organization with a focus in helping and supporting other managed charities. Through this organization Tom will be able to support some of the causes that are near and dear to his heart: assistance for the homeless, education initiatives, improved access to social services, and more. Addressing both the short-term needs (such as disaster relief) and long-term needs (such as economic empowerment) of people around the world, Tom Leydiker Foundation currently supports a variety of organizations, including:
National Police Defense Foundation
Doctors Without Borders
Habitat for Humanity
TiKVA Children’s Home
Friends of Israeli Defense Force
International Federation for Jews and Christians
Prior to creating this foundation, Tom has a long personal background in contributing to philanthropic efforts. One recent opportunity which Tom particularly cherished was his sponsorship of TiKVA’s Annual Gala at Espace NYC. TiKVA is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to providing much-needed resources and support to at-risk Jewish children in Odessa, Ukraine.
