Mr. Robert H. N. Ho
Foundation gives to endow Stanford Center for Buddhist Studies, 24 June 2008 [cached]
Robert Ho's career was devoted to journalism and to the management of the family's business interests. Since retiring, he has focused his attention on philanthropy through the foundations he set up (the Ho Family Foundation and the Tung Lin Kok Yuen Canada Foundation) and through personal gifts. Ho follows in the footsteps of his grandmother, Lady Clara Ho Tung, who was a devout Buddhist dedicated to an array of both religious and charitable activities. In 1935, she established the Tung Lin Kok Yuen, which served as both a Buddhist school and a venue for Buddhist practice and which was the first Buddhist school for girls constructed in Hong Kong. In 1994, Ho perpetuated his grandparents' legacy, in particular his grandmother's, by establishing the Tung Lin Kok Yuen Canada Society, and, in 2005, he founded the Tung Lin Kok Yuen Canada Foundation to endow chairs and research programs in Buddhist studies. Ho is realizing his grandmother's aspiration to promote Buddhist education internationally.

VANCOUVER - A new, state-of-the-art research centre will be established at Vancouver General Hospital, housing three internationally-recognized research programs and named after Robert H.N. Ho in honour of his $15-million donation, Premier Gordon Campbell announced today.
"I have lived my life according to the motto that has guided our family for three generations, 'Before you receive, you must first give,'" said Mr. Ho. "This gift was inspired by my friendship with VGH's Dr. Anthony Fung, who convinced me to contribute to these important research projects. I am proud to play a part in helping improve the lives of people from across B.C. and around the world."
The Robert H.N. Ho Research Centre will house hundreds of scientists and clinicians pioneering new treatments and cures for patients with prostate and ovarian cancers, as well as hip and mobility issues.
