Harvard receives $350M pledge

Harvard landed a record $350 million pledge from the Morningside Foundation earlier this month. The pledge will support Harvard’s School of Public Health and will be the largest donation the school has ever received.

The foundation is the charitable arm of the Morningside Group, a private equity and venture capital firm run by the descendants of T.H. Chan including Gerald and Ronnie Chan.

Gerald Chan, who earned a master’s degree from the School of Public Health in the 1970s, said the gift will help students and policymakers “improve human health throughout the world.”

Harvard said the School of Public Health will be renamed in honor of the late T.H. Chan.
