2011-12 Philanthropic Annual Report

California State University, Pomona

Contribution Highlights

During summer of 2011, the Division of University Advancement entered year four of their five-year Campaign for Cal Poly Pomona. The 2011-2012 year concluded with $104,956,701 million raised. This amount is 70 percent of the university's $150 million goal. The following are a few highlights of last year's success:

  • Peter Castro, Professor Emeritus of Biological Sciences, signed a $1.5 million bequest, the largest gift to the College of Science, to endow two scholarships, as well as establish an environmental science scholar-in-residence. The bequest came a few months after a generous $147,000 donation Castro made to establish another scholarship: The Rachel Carson Environmental Science Scholarship, named after the American biologist and conservationist who started the modern environmental movement.
  • Architecture alumna Juliana Terian, co-founder of Nouvelle View and former chairman of Rallye Automotive Group (NY), pledged $2.5 million to the College of Environmental Design. It is the single largest cash gift in the history of the college and the seventh largest cash gift in Cal Poly Pomona history.
  • Engineering technology alumnus Tony Marraccino and his wife, Terri, made a generous planned gift that will equally benefit the Rose Float program, the College of Engineering and a maintenance fund for the university.
