Uncommon Union helped to launch The Thomas Foundation. The Thomas Foundation identifies and supports emerging leaders with diverse backgrounds from around the world. By providing support, their aim is to overcome entrenched obstacles while encouraging a new generation of social entrepreneurs, educators, politicians, artisans, and visionaries of all kinds.
The Thomas Foundation was founded by Syga Thomas in 2016. As a former Diplomat for the US State Department and a successful entrepreneur, Thomas appreciates courageous leadership in both public and private sectors. Ironically, individuals with exceptional perspectives and creative solutions are often unable to gain meaningful support. The Thomas Foundation seeks to bridge this gap. As a foundation, they seek to build on the contributions of remarkable individuals in the spirit of social progress and democracy.
