As a business leader and philanthropist, Tom believes it is our moral responsibility to give back. Tom Steyer is a member of the advisory council at The Hamilton Project and also served as the co-chair of Save Lives California. Tom and his wife, Kat Taylor, have pledged to give most of their wealth to charitable causes. Together, they founded Beneficial State Bank, a bank that invests all profits back into the community while providing loans to individuals who would normally be excluded by traditional banks.
Steyer continues to give back to his alma mater, Stanford University. Together with Kat, another Stanford graduate, they’ve founded The TomKat Center for Sustainable Energy and the Steyer-Taylor Center for Energy Policy and Finance, both research institutions at the university.
