.- The Dan Murphy Foundation of Los Angeles has approved a grant of $2 million to Thomas Aquinas College in honor of the school’s late president, Dr. Thomas E. Dillon, who was killed in an automobile accident last April.

In a press release, President-elect Dr. Michael F. McLean explained that “this magnificent grant is being made as a lead gift to the college’s new capital campaign, the goal of which is to complete all of the funding for Our Lady of the Most Holy Trinity Chapel. That was a project dear to Tom’s heart, and we are so grateful the Dan Murphy Foundation has chosen to honor him in this way.”

“The Trustees of the Dan Murphy Foundation are pleased to make this contribution in memory of Dr. Dillon, in recognition of his great achievements on behalf of Thomas Aquinas College,” said Richard A. Grant, President of the Dan Murphy Foundation.

“It is hoped the Foundation’s grant will be an impetus to complete the College's capital campaign as a tribute to Dr. Dillon's tireless efforts in building the Thomas Aquinas campus. This beautiful chapel exemplifies Tom Dillon's devotion to the Roman Catholic Church and Thomas Aquinas College,” Grant added.

Thomas Aquinas' $7 million capital campaign will conclude on June 30, 2011.
