Sun Youth is happy to announce that it recently received 65,000$ from the Charlotte and Leo Karassik Foundation. These funds will be used to finance Sun Youth’s Emergency Relief and Crime Victims Funds. The Charlotte & Leo Karassik Foundation was created due to the generosity of Charlotte & Leo Karassik, both of whom have passed away. The Foundation funds other registered charities dedicated to the welfare of individuals and communities. Sun Youth’s mission relies primarily on the generosity of private donors, such as the Charlotte and Leo Karassik Foundation. This is the third donation to Sun Youth from the Foundation in just 2 1/2 years. Following the death of Mr. Karassik in 2007, Mrs. Karassik preselected seven organizations to benefit in perpetuity from the generosity of the Foundation, before she passed away herself in 2012. Other beneficiaries include hospitals, universities, eldercare centers, sports organizations, summer camps and more.
