T. Eric Galloway serves as the president of the Lantern Organization, Inc., which oversees the development of real estate projects. Outside of work, Eric Galloway is dedicated to giving back to his community.
Mr. Galloway cofounded the Galvan Foundation to serve the people of Hudson, New York. Over the years, the foundation has given grants to a number of educational organizations that have greatly impacted the community.
The Galvan Foundation gave a $15,000 grant to the Hudson Family Literacy Program, which helps individuals meet their educational goals and promotes literacy in Hudson. The foundation has also supported the Bard College Dream to Achieve Program, which provides after-school tutoring to high school students. The program is run by students in the Bard master of arts teaching program.
To increase opportunities for underserved students, the Galvan Foundation offered $150,000 to the Columbia-Greene Partnership Academy to cover tuition for 25 students from Hudson. Perfect Ten After School, a curriculum for girls from fourth grade through graduation, has received more than $80,000 from the foundation to develop its programs for at-risk girls.
