About US

mission statement


We operate on the premise – “When you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.” We know we can make a difference in our corner of the world. In doing so there will be a ripple effect that will continue to bring change in ways we may never see.
​​Our organization was founded in honor of a wonderful young man who was taken from our world all too soon. Russell was a compassionate, loving and kind man. Our goal is to honor the work he started as a teacher and artist.

The Russell Brian Gusloff Foundation funds scholarships to graduating seniors at York Community High School in Elmhurst, IL, attending college with the career path of teacher or the arts: painting, drawing, jewelry,
photography, ceramics, theater, music.
