The University has announced a RISE Campaign gift of $50,000 from Donald T. Galarneau, a 1949 University graduate who worked at General Electric Company for 35 years as a field engineer. The gift will be divided equally for the Shiley School of Engineering and the Donald T. Galarneau Endowed Scholarship.
A Portland resident, Galarneau earned a degree in physics at the University and served in the United States Army Air Corps during World War II. His interests at the University of Portland include the engineering and science programs and the Mini Baja Project. He often attends University reunions and events and is involved with the local Catholic radio station KBVM.
The Galarneau gift is part of the University’s RISE Campaign, which was announced in December 2010 and seeks to raise $175 million by 2014. The RISE Campaign, which has raised more than $172 million to date, is one of the largest development campaigns ever for a Pacific Northwest private college or university.
