Foundation donates $2.5 million to establish Buddhist Studies chair

Hong Kong’s Robert H. N. Ho Family Foundation announced a $2.5 million donation on Monday to establish an endowed Buddhist Studies chair at Stanford’s Robert Ho Center for Buddhist Studies. With a matching gift from the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation, the money will go toward funding the first permanent faculty post dedicated to Buddhism at the University.
