History of the Eagles’ Wings Foundation


, , , ,

As a passionate philanthropist, Thomas Zenovic gives back to his community through participation in a variety of charitable groups and causes, including the Eagles’ Wings Foundation (EWF). Through the support of people like Thomas Zenovic, the EWF provides disaster relief after storms and other catastrophic events.

The Eagles’ Wings Foundation was started in 1999, amidst relief efforts in the Bahamas in the wake of Hurricane Floyd. EWF’s leader, Scott Lewis, had been appointed to the position of incident commander to deal with the calamity, and subsequently this led to the formation of the organization’s first leadership team. Since its inception, the group has continued to learn from each of its deployments, and this has improved their response capacity as well as their ability to serve as a resource for other organizations. Some of the major disasters to which they have responded include the Deepwater Horizon oil spill of 2010, the Japanese tsunami and earthquake of 2011, and a series of hurricanes that occurred in 2004 and 2005. EWF regularly works with government organizations, assuring that disaster victims receive the most efficient response possible.

A wealth management advisor and vice president with Merrill Lynch, Thomas Zenovic has nearly 20 years of experience in financial planning. Outside of his professional life, Thomas Zenovic is involved with numerous charity organizations, including the Children’s Miracle Network, the Eagles Wings Foundation, and JDRF, formerly known as the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation.

JDRF is dedicated to determining the cause of type 1 diabetes and finding a cure. In July of 2013, hundreds of children affiliated with JDRF met with members of Congress in Washington, DC, on the need for type 1 diabetes research funding. They called for the renewal of Congressional support for type 1 diabetes research through legislation such as the Special Diabetes Program (SDP). Supporting JDRF’s cause is a new study indicating that diabetes costs are expected to more than double by the year 2020. However, with continued funding for programs such as the SDP, the incidence and severity of type 1 diabetes could be reduced, saving taxpayers billions of dollars.
