RANCHO MIRAGE - The locally-based Galen Family Foundation announced today a six-year deal with the Palm Springs Unified School District to fund an endowment at Rancho Mirage High School.
The endowment, which will total $1.5 million over the six years will benefit the performing arts.
The first check of $250,000 was presented by Helene Galen to the district in ceremonies at the yet unopened school.
The Galen Family Fundation has supported many projects with the University of Southern California, and this is the first pledge the foundation has made to a public school.
The Palm Springs Unified School District plans to rename the theater buildings as The Helene Galen Center for the Performing Arts and The Helene Galen Theatre for the Performing Arts.
Rancho Mirage High will open in September.
