Retired billionaire businessman Robert Hung-Ngai Ho, who now makes his home in Vancouver, has gifted $5 million for Buddhist studies to Stanford University

With matching funds from the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation, the center will use the gift to expand and strengthen Stanford’s internationally recognized Buddhist studies program through enhanced support for faculty and student research, visiting fellows, curriculum development and academic and public events.
