PUC Receives Gift from The Darling Foundation

Chris Togami, June 28, 2007
The Hugh and Hazel Darling Foundation has made a $60,000 grant to Pacific Union College to fund student scholarships and a capital campaign readiness effort for the college.

Richard L. Stack is trustee of the foundation, which was started in 1987 by Hazel Darling after the death of her husband, Hugh. Stack visited PUC in May and expressed an interest in helping the College fulfill its mission to provide Christian education in California. The Darling Foundation has funded major projects such as the UCLA law library and the law library at USC, Hugh Darling’s alma mater. Darling was also known for his service as a city councilman and mayor of Beverly Hills.

“We appreciate the commitment of The Darling Foundation, which will make it possible for several students to attend PUC over the next two years who would not otherwise be able to attend,” PUC President Richard Osborn says of the gift. “The Foundation’s investment will also help PUC prepare for a capital campaign to expand and renovate our library, which will become the major learning center on campus.”
