Tom and his wife have founded OneRoof, Inc., a social enterprise business designed to bring broadband connectivity, computer literacy, and employment skills with their company to rural areas in India and Mexico. OneRoof isn’t a non-profit organization, so this is most likely one of their sources of income.

In 2007 Tom and his wife found Beneficial State Bank, a community development bank, and this also contributes to their income.

All in all, Tom was a billionaire when he left Farallon Capital, so the income he has does not contribute to his net worth as much as the money he amassed while in Farallon.
