Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg and his wife Priscilla are donating $5 million to help expand a community health centre in Silicon Valley. The gift will cover part of the USD 29 million cost for adding another facility to the Ravenswood Family Health Centre in East Palo Alto, Calif. The new 38,000-square-foot facility, scheduled to be complete next year, will house all health services except for administration. The Zuckerberg/Chan donation will cover the final costs to build the facility. Another $7 million is needed for equipment and furnishing after the construction is completed.

The announcement was made on Wednesday January 22 on behalf of the couple during a ground-breaking ceremony for the Ravenswood Family Health Center. Zuckerberg and Chan were unable to attend.
