Rod Thomas has served as an advisory board member and active participant of many charitable organizations. His contributions in terms of time and energy over more than three decades of progressive work have improved the lives of many people from all walks of life on a truly global scale. Taking time from his busy schedule as the Managing Director of Avantis Wealth to help others is something many might not do, but Mr. Thomas always makes it a priority in his schedule.
Many people are either willing to donate time or money to worthy causes, but Mr. Thomas has shown time and again that he is willing to contribute both. Backing his words with his deeds and engaging others from his professional or personal life to build on that momentum has allowed Rod Thomas to do a tremendous amount of good for society, and enabled others to follow his example more easily.
While some of Rod Thomas’ charitable actions have been global efforts, the majority of his non-profit focus has been directed toward his native England. Participating in the London Marathon for Clic Sargent, funding the work of Chestnut Tree House and raising considerable funding for the British Heart Foundation – working toward broad goals of better health for everyone in the United Kingdom and beyond allows Mr. Thomas to do the most good with each bit of effort.
