The Finish Line

After nearly 70 years of philanthropy, real estate development, and collecting of fine arts, William Rolland has finally decided to cross the finish line. The addition of The William Rolland Art Center will be Rolland's final contribution to Cal Lutheran University and the entire Thousand Oaks community. Over the years Rolland has touched the lives of thousands of students with his contributions of art.

His philanthropy work began with the founding of the William Rolland Firefighters Foundation, and extended to the building of a professional football stadium at CLU. A founder in Malibu real estate development, and contributor to advances in modern racing, his legacy as a Southern California pioneer will be recognized for many years to come.
