McCombs’ particular interest in M. D. Anderson was accentuated in 1986, when he visited a dying friend undergoing treatment there.He expressed how he was overcome by the kindness of every employee he met at the hospital. The workers, McCombs found, had been trained to offer compassion and solace to all who come through the doors.
He joined the Anderson board and in 2005 donated $30 million to the hospital. The business school at the University of Texas was renamed the Red McCombs School of Business in recognition of his $50 million donation to the institution.

Red Mccombs Controversy

McCombs owns a piece of property surrounded by National Forest near Wolf Creek ski area, a resort in southern Colorado owned by the Pitcher family. McCombs has long wanted to develop a resort community on his property, a plan that has drawn opposition and lawsuits from environmentalists and surrounding communities.
McCombs has been unsuccessful in his attempts to convince the court to remove a key roadblock preventing his proposed development. McCombs then attempted to build a 50,000-acre (200 km2) casino resort at Navajo Canyon on Lake Powell. The local Navajo Nation chapters, local government officials, all unanimously rejected the casino proposal and any projects by Red McCombs.
In 2013, McCombs was found by the United States Supreme Court to have engaged in a sham tax avoidance transaction and was therefore liable for a valuation misstatement penalty.
McCombs severely criticized the 2014 University of Texas hire of Charlie Strong as football coach. He described Strong as “great position coach … not on a par with other candidates.” Three days later he apologized, and pledged “total support” for Strong.
