Lennar’s $50M Gift to City of Hope Speeds Cancer Center Progress
World-renowned cancer research and treatment center City of Hope recently received a $50 million gift from Lennar Foundation, the charitable arm of homebuilder Lennar Corporation. This transformational gift is the largest single philanthropic contribution to City of Hope Orange County.
It will expedite the healthcare organization’s plans to invest $1 billion to develop and operate a comprehensive cancer campus in Irvine. It will also establish an Orange County network of advanced cancer care and research that will speed groundbreaking treatments.
The future 190,000-square-foot Lennar Foundation Cancer Center at City of Hope Orange County will be located on 11 acres at Five Point’s Great Park. Construction is already underway on the cancer center, which will open in 2022. In addition, Orange County’s only hospital dedicated exclusively to treating and curing cancer will open at City of Hope Irvine in 2025.
