Lennar Foundation Cancer Center

 

City of Hope said Wednesday it received a $50 million gift from Lennar Foundation for its planned comprehensive cancer center at the Great Park Neighborhoods in Irvine.

The donation was from the charitable arm of Lennar Corporation, a Miami-based homebuilder with a long-held West Coast hub in Aliso Viejo.

The gift, the largest single contribution to City of Hope Orange County, will support the opening of its 190,000-square-foot facility in August 2022.

City of Hope expects to ultimately invest about $1 billion into the Irvine campus, which will include a specialty hospital opening in 2025.
