ABOUT THE DONOR
Mrs. Gertsacov (or Mrs. G, as her students called her) passed away in December 2007- but her legacy of arts, creativity, and education will live on through this program.
The Arts In Academics Program at the RI Foundation was created by Karel Gertsacov, a retired art school educator in the Cranston School System, to inspire creativity and increase collaboration between educators and artists, and to ensure that the arts remain a core and important part of the Rhode Island educational system.
The fund is administered by the Rhode Island Foundation. The next grant deadline is November 18, 2022
