The University of Pennsylvania has received a $225 million gift –- the largest single gift in its history -– from philanthropist Raymond G. Perelman and his wife, Ruth, to benefit Penn’s world-renowned School of Medicine. The gift represents the largest single gift to name a school of medicine in the United States. It will create a permanent endowment for the school, which will be renamed the Raymond and Ruth Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania.
