Padded with Donations, Harvard’s Endowment Gets More Breathing Room


Recently Harvard University received a massive US$ 400 million gift from hedge fund titan John A. Paulson – the single biggest donation in the university’s history. The money went toward the Harvard’s Engineering and Applied Sciences school. Harvard will rename the school after John Paulson and part of the gift money will go toward the construction of a campus in Allston. Harvard’s endowment does not allocate any money toward Paulson. In 2015, the Sovereign Wealth Fund Institute ranked Harvard Business School #2 as a top business school to be a public institutional investor.
