San Diego philanthropist Conrad Prebys has donated $25 million to the Salk Institute for Biological Studies to boost the La Jolla research center’s endowment, according to published reports.

The gift is the second largest in the institute’s current $300 million capital campaign, following a March 2013 contribution of $2 million from the Helmsley Charitable Trust. Prebys’ contribution brings the tally to $275 million, with a year left in the campaign.

Prebys, who made his fortune in real estate, has made n0umerous large gifts to area health, education and cultural institutions, most recently donating $20 million for a new scholarship program at San Diego State University.
