Entertainment industry billionaire David Geffen has three record labels and the Dreamworks animation studio to his name, and he’s also distinguished himself as a prolific philanthropist. His latest big gift is to the tune of $75 million. The gift will benefit Columbia Business School – and more specifically, it will go towards the construction of two new buildings on the school’s campus in Manhattan.
n commemoration of Geffen’s pledge, one of those two buildings will be named David Geffen Hall. The buildings will be located right across from Henry R. Kravis Hall at the school (Kravis is another wealthy philanthropist who made a pledge of some $100 million towards Columbia Business School about a decade ago).
In a press release, Geffen spoke briefly on his decision to share a bit of his wealth with Columbia Business School:
“I’m proud to provide support for the Columbia Business School at this moment of opportunity and change…The school is among the best of its kind in the world and will prepare future generations of business leaders.”
