The George P. Karusky, IV Memorial Foundation was created from overflowing love for “Georgie” who passed away suddenly on April 23, 2020. Georgie was a loving son, grandson, nephew, cousin, sweetheart to Samantha, friend to many and best friend to the lucky few! He was a proud Archbishop Ryan Raider, Class of 2020, three-sport athlete. People were drawn to Georgie, he was kind, easy going, hilarious, and loyal. To honor Georgie, one of his closest friends, Steven Neilson, started a fundraiser to collect money for the installation of a stained-glass window in the chapel of Archbishop Ryan High School. At the request of Georgie’s dad, all excess monies would be put towards scholarships. Through the outpouring of support and generous giving of the community, the collection well surpassed the goal of the stained glass window installation! Additionally, the Archbishop Ryan High School Family and Leadership joined the quest to raise funds. Their goal also exceeded expectations! With overwhelming generosity and support from many collectively, the GK4 Foundation was created. The George Karusky, IV Memorial Foundation is a legacy fund that will help children for generations to come. The GK4 Foundation will provide opportunities for children in multiple ways while supporting the community at the same time. Your support will be the cornerstone of the success of the foundation and we will be forever grateful. It should also be said that 100% of all funds collected will go to put smiles on children’s faces as Georgie always did in more ways than one.
