Passionate about giving back, his business acumen and leadership were highlight valued by the 19 corporate boards, 18 nonprofits boards, and 5 advisory boards of which he served. At IU, he was involved with the IU Foundation Board of Directors and the Kelley School of Business Dean's Advisory Council, where he served as chairman. Steingraber also financially supported the university, particularly the Kelley School of Business through the Frederick G.
