New Year Brings Major New Funding for Chinese Garden

Chinese Garden Phase II


Ushering in the Year of the Rooster, a group of major gifts to The Huntington’s Chinese Garden bring it closer to full funding for the second and final phase of construction. New gifts totaling $8.5 million come from June and Simon Li, Joy and Matthew Lin, and Judy Yin Shih and Joel Axelrod. Another gift to finalize the funding of the second phase is expected in early 2017, after which construction will get under way with an eye toward completion by fall 2018. These gifts bring the total amount raised for the second phase to $24 million, which includes features completed in 2014. learn more
