Meyerhoff Pledges
$3 Million to

Baltimore civic leader and philanthropist Harvey M. (Bud) Meyerhoff, retired chairman of Magna Properties, has announced a commitment of $3 million to the Johns Hopkins Initiative campaign.

Meyerhoff's pledge, which he called his family's "initial" campaign commitment, includes $2 million to support the university and hospital's planned new cancer research and treatment facilities.

Of the remaining $1 million, $500,000 will endow the Harvey M. and Lyn P. Meyerhoff Fellowships at the university's Paul H. Nitze School of Advanced International Studies.

The other $500,000 will endow fellowships in the Meyerhoff Cancer Prevention Program and support the Philip Franklin Wagley Chair in bioethics, both in the School of Hygiene and Public Health.

Meyerhoff, a former chairman of the board of trustees of the Johns Hopkins Hospital and Health System, has served many years on the boards of both the health system and university.

"To engage fully in life, all of us need strong minds and healthy bodies, which are essentially the goals of all endeavors at Johns Hopkins," Meyerhoff said. "I want to help ensure that Hopkins will continue to excel in these endeavors. I will do whatever I can to see that this takes place."
