Ming Hsieh
Donation: $50 million to USC at Los Angeles

Ming Hsieh has left his mark at his alma mater, the University of Southern California at Los Angeles. First he went onto found tech behemoths AMAX and Cogent. Then in 2006, he donated $35 million to the school's electrical engineering department -- which was subsequently named after him.

In 2010, Hsieh made an even bigger donation: $50 million to establish the USC Ming Hsieh Institute for Research on Engineering Medicine for Cancer.

Hsieh said in a speech that the center will "accelerate the pace of getting the new medicines from the lab to the cancer patients," as well as bridge the USC campus itself.
