$400-mil­lion gift for Har­vard

Los Angeles Times - - THE NATION -

Har­vard Univer­sity has re­ceived its big­gest gift in school his­tory — a $400-mil­lion do­na­tion from Wall Street hedge fund bil­lion­aire and alum­nus John Paul­son, the univer­sity said.

The en­dow­ment from Paul­son will sup­port the School of En­gi­neer­ing and Ap­plied Sciences, which has led tech­nol­ogy break­throughs and is plan­ning to ex­pand, the univer­sity said.

Har­vard re­ceived the gift amid a $6.5-bil­lion fundrais­ing cam­paign that started in 2013.
