LOS ANGELES (AP) Animal feed mogul Meyer Luskin and his wife, Renee, have donated $100 million to the University of California, Los Angeles.
Half the gift goes to the UCLA School of Public Affairs to support teaching and research in public policy, urban planning and social welfare. The rest goes toward construction of an on-campus hotel and conference center.
The 85-year-old Luskin, a UCLA alumnus who lives in Brentwood, is president and chairman of Scope Industries, a Santa Monica-based firm that recycles bakery waste into an ingredient in animal feed.
The school says the Luskin gift is the second largest ever to UCLA, topped only by entertainment industry mogul David Geffen's $200 million medical school donation in 2002.
