UCLA cancelled an agreement the school had with Donald Sterling in which he offered to donate $3 million paid out over the course of seven years, the university announced on Tuesday. Sterling, through his Donald T. Sterling Charitable Foundation, had already sent UCLA $425,000 in donation to be used toward kidney research. The entire sum of that money will be returned to Sterling. “Mr. Sterling’s divisive and hurtful comments demonstrate that he does not share UCLA’s core values as a public university that fosters diversity, inclusion and respect. For those reasons, UCLA has decided to return Mr. Sterling’s initial payment of $425,000 and reject the remainder of a $3-million pledge he recently made to support basic kidney research by the UCLA Division of Nephrology,” UCLA spokeswoman Carol Stogsdill said in a statement.
