Sr. Jorge Imana, a world renown artist passed away at his home in Bajamar in early December. From the beginning of the BSF, Jorge and his wife, Cristina, have been supporters and Cristina has served on the Board for many years.A life-long lover of all the arts, Jorge recently helped one of our students purchase a new violin.
This gift inspired Cristina to endow a new program, The Jorge Imana Fund for the Development of the Arts, which will allow BSF students the incredible opportunity to study the arts, whether it be dance, painting, music or photography. Students will be able to submit a proposal for a grant to do something that simply would be outside of their family's capabilities to explore.
The original endowment has grown through donations from many who loved and respected Sra, Imana and who wished to donate to this fund in his memory.
