Jean Rustici Memorial Fund

Who Was Jean Rustici? 

The Jean Rustici Memorial Fund was created in 2016 by

a group of Jean’s friends and is sustained by CTAEYC’s

willingness to manage the funds and implement the lecture as

part of their conference. To memorialize and honor Jean’s impact

on Connecticut, her name and passion for early childhood education

will continue to be associated with this event, sustaining her impact on young children and early childhood professionals.

The Jean Rustici Endowed Lecture honors, celebrates, and preserves the memory and influence of Jean Rustici as a champion of early childhood professionals, the Connecticut Association for the Education of Young Children, quality early childhood education, and children and families everywhere.

Your donations will help sustain Jean’s memory and influence early childhood professionals in Connecticut. Tax deductible donations may be sent to CTAEYC, 415 Silas Deane Hwy, Suite 402, Wethersfield, CT 06109. Please note that your donation is for the Jean Rustici Memorial Lecture.  You can also opt to donate online by clicking the link below.
