A Stanford Graduate and founder of Business Wire, Lokey has given over $700-million dollars to charity, mostly educational institutions on the west coast. He was one of almost 100 billionaires who signed the Giving Pledge to commit half of their wealth to nonprofits. Lokey has given away about 90% of his wealth, but calls “giving” a misnomer. “It’s investing,” he explains.
