In fact charity programs in Staritsa town area started way before official establishment of the «Staritsa» fund. The programs comprised publishing, church restorations and some other benevolent activities. They have been implemented by both organizations’ and individuals’ efforts. It also helped much to forge a team of alike-minded people and colleagues. Two of them have become fund’s Governing Board members - Alexander Shitkov, a local historian and Dmitry Kurdiukov, arch-priest, a clergyman of Kazanskaya (Our lady Kazanskaya) church in (the city of) Tver, the former senior priest of Georgievsky (St. George) church in Urievskoe village, Staritsa town area.
