Its mission is to improve the quality of life for Hudson citizens, providing financial backing to charities and programs to help those who are economically disadvantaged. T. Eric Galloway began his career in law after obtaining degrees from Holy Cross College, Brown University, and Harvard Law School. He went on to cofound and serve as president of the Lantern Group, LLC, an affordable housing developer in New York City.

The Galvan Foundation is currently sponsoring the conversion of the historic Hudson Armory Building into the new Galvan Community Center. Located at the corner of 5th and State Streets, the military-style medieval gothic structure boasts over 26,000 square feet. Originally constructed in 1898, the armory was the design of New York architect Isaac G. Perry and was occupied until the 1960s by contingents of the National Guard. It is currently under review for inclusion in the National Register of Historic Places.

Under the new renovations, the building will be revitalized into a community center including a 12,000-square-foot public library, office space for nonprofits and other service-based entities, a community event space, and a senior center.
