$1 million donation will revitalize Webb library
The Webb Schools has received a $1 million donation from the Charles Huang Foundation that will go toward reimagining the school’s 11,000-square-foot W. Russell Fawcett Library.
The money will cover the cost of constructing the Charles Huang Innovation Wing in recognition of the significant donation. The project is currently in the conceptual design phase. Webb hopes to break ground in the summer of 2023.
“Webb’s vision for the library is to create a comfortable and flexible space that encourages all styles of learning and collaboration,” read a news release. “The effort encompasses small study spaces and tools to facilitate gatherings, presentations and performances.”
“The Charles Huang Innovation Wing will enable our students to experience the benefits of a state-of-the-art center for unbounded thinking and learning, with flexible new learning spaces, digital technology and experiential learning resources,” Head of Schools Taylor B. Stockdale said in a statement. “We are deeply grateful and appreciative of Dr. Charles Huang and the Charles Huang Foundation for making this substantial donation to Webb.”
Huang is the founder and chair of Pasaca Capital Inc., a California-based multi-billion-dollar evergreen fund with global portfolio companies in North America, Europe, Asia and the Middle East.
