From the President

Welcome to the A. C. Ratshesky Foundation web site. We hope that you find the information on our site to be useful. While we do not actively manage the site on a regular basis, we do update the site after each meeting of the trustees to allow potential grantees to see our funding choices. We hope that this information will help to inform regarding possible grant possibilities.

It may interest you to know that at present, each of our trustees is a direct descendant of Cap Ratshesky, who was a truly iconic figure in our family’s history here in Boston. We truly embrace and honor his principles of philanthropy.

The Foundation places a high priority on adherence to our posted guidelines as well as to requiring organizations to quantitatively demonstrate to the trustees how our grants have helped them accomplish their goals. We are results-oriented and committed to carrying on Cap’s legacy.

It is our great honor to be able to serve on this Board and to be able to play a small role in helping others to help themselves. I encourage you to contact our colleagues at GMA Foundations with any questions you have before submitting a funding request. Thank you for your good work and continued good luck.

Best wishes,

Laurie Morse Sprague, President

A. C. Ratshesky Foundation
