Steven Ullman and his brother George “Corky” Ullman Jr., both of Santa Clarita, are donating $2 million toward a new, $15 million dining commons at California Lutheran University in Thousand Oaks, the school announced Tuesday.
The donation comes through the Ullman Family Scholarship, established by the brothers’ parents in 1987. The university had decided to scale back the project to $13 million before the brothers stepped in to make up the shortfall.
Corky is a CLU regent and a 1976 alumnus who played football. Steve was on the wrestling team and graduated in 1977. They previously donated $1.5 million to build a baseball stadium that the school named for them.
According to the school, “the family has provided support for CLU scholarships and facilities, including Ullman Stadium, for nearly 35 years.”
In January, Henry Mayo Newhall Memorial Hospital in Valencia publicly thanked Steve Ullman and his wife, Kim, for contributing $1.5 million toward the cost of a new, $6 million, 11-bed neonatal intensive care unit, which the hospital named for the couple.
Steve and Corky Ullman own Grant Parking Inc., a holding company whose assets include Ullman Bros. Land and Cattle Co. and Ullman Partners LLC.
