Tom Anderson

Tom Anderson is a guy whose passion is helping others, he just so happens to be a financial advisor. After graduating from Canisius College with a finance degree, he didn’t want to go the banking route and loved working with others, so he decided to pursue a career as an advisor. He focuses on helping others achieve their goals no matter what stage of life they are in. He is very involved with the Lymphoma and Leukemia Society, Big Brother Big Sister of WNY, the St. Francis High School Alumni Board, the Canisius college young alumni philanthropy group, and the Hauptman-Woodward Institute. He plays baseball in the summer, skis in the winter and loves photography and traveling as much as he can.

Why were you interested in helping HWI?

I am interested in helping HWI because I love being able to give back to the community. I am involved with other organizations but this is the only one that focuses on research that will help our current and future generations. HWI has done some amazing things in the past and I am proud to be a part of it moving forward. There are so many exciting things to come and I am really looking forward to them!

Why does research matter to you?

Research matters to me because science is always changing and evolving and if we don’t do research and learn more about whatever it may be, we will fall behind. Always being able to learn and grow is something that I am passionate about and research is certainly a way to do so!
