Rob Thomson Founds Philanthropic Foundation Waterfront Way Foundation – For a Better Way
Waterfront Way Foundation’s core purpose is to help increasingly more people in our community experience and enjoy life in the reality of a better way, and to support various under-resourced individuals and organizations in the northern Palm Beaches and Treasure Coast communities.
Managing Partner Rob Thomson of Waterfront Properties & Club Communities (“Waterfront Properties”) and Waterfront Yacht Brokerage founded the Waterfront Way Foundation to bring Thomson’s personal and corporate philanthropic and charitable efforts together under one umbrella.
Initially self-funded, the Foundation propels Thomson’s long held philosophy of personal philanthropy and good corporate citizenry. At its height, his Charities for Children Foundation was purchasing, soliciting and personally delivering up to 30,000 toys during one holiday season. Various cancer causes and fishing tournaments have been staples of his efforts for years.
Starting the Foundation was the logical next step for Rob Thomson’s philanthropic efforts. The name is its own interesting story. “We were talking about how much we enjoy the work we do for charity. Someone commented, ‘It’s the Waterfront Way.’”
