Last Friday, Harvard University was the beneficiary of a $150 million donation from Kenneth Griffin, founder and CEO of Citadel Advisors LLC.
The gift is mainly to support student aid and is the largest in the history of Harvard College (the university’s undergraduate school). This donation will help the expansion of the financial aid program that Harvard President Drew Faust has implemented.
“Ken Griffin’s extraordinary philanthropy is opening Harvard’s gates wider to the most talented students in the world, no matter their economic circumstances,” said Faust.
Griffin graduated with a degree in economics from Harvard College and has several other connections to the school. Prospect Visual reveals some of the strongest overlapping relationships that may have helped influence his generous donation to his alma mater.
