Dr. Joseph Shainsky Foundation, a Public Benefit not-for-profit 501 c(3) Corporation

was established on February 27, 2012 in Los Angeles, California. 
The specific purpose of this corporation is to create a Dr. Joseph Shainsky Library and Cultural Center, and to award an annual prize for outstanding achievements in the creation of Products of Spirit: arts, poetry and philisophy.              
Dr. Joseph Shainsky Foundation also offers beautiful charitable sightseeing tours for the US Veterans.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                               

It will not be an exaggeration to say, that Dr. Joseph Shainsky was a true millionaire. He has delivered millions of long-lasting moments of happiness to the untold number of people. As a medical doctor and Director of Center for Decease Control (UzSSR), he saved lives and prevented epidemics; as an educator, he taught countless medical students; textbooks he wrote are being used in medical schools today. He excelled as a researcher and scientist, was featured on TV, radio and in print. In his retirement years Dr. Joseph Shainsky founded a tour company in Los Angeles, California, where he then volunteered as a tour guide. Here too, without any compensation, he continued generously sharing his unprecedented knowledge, helping Russian Americans to discover America and the world, which in the end benefited over 500,000 people. Dr. Joseph Shainsky seemed to be one of the few, who possessed all Ten Essential Virtues, i.e. Wisdom, Magnanimity, Integrity, Justice, Fortitude, Love, Self-control, Positive Attitude, Hard Work, Gratitude and Humility.
