Tom’s background

While Donald Trump claims his long history of failed and bankrupted businesses made him a “master of the deal,” Tom is a true self-made billionaire.

In 1986, he opened Farallon Capital Management and grew the firm by investing in businesses that expanded and hired more people.

Tom and his wife, Kat Taylor, were among the first to sign the “Giving Pledge” to dedicate their wealth to philanthropic purposes during their lifetimes.

The grassroots campaigns Tom has led over the past ten years have put more renewable energy on the grid while creating thousands of new jobs and generating funding for schools and health care.
