$400 million gift to Ben-Gurion believed largest-ever to an Israeli university

(JTA) – A $400 million gift to Ben-Gurion University of the Negev, earmarked in large part for water research, is believed to be the largest-ever bequest on behalf of an Israeli university. The gift was made by the estate of Dr. Howard and Lottie Marcus of San Diego, CA.

The family made its fortune investing with Warren Buffett.

A substantial portion is earmarked for the university’s water research institute, which studies sustainable use of water resources, desalination technologies, water quality and microbiology.
