The Novak Family Foundation was founded per the wishes of Mr. Gust Novak.  Gust was the last surviving member of the Novak family and was preceded in death by his father Dimitri, mother Efthalia, sister Julia, sister Praxy, brother George, and sister Victoria.  The Novak family owned and operated "George's Fruit Store" located at 1646 Broadway in Gary, Indiana.  The family was dedicated to their Greek Orthodox religion, their church, and their community for many years.  It was the wish of Mr. Novak to promote Orthodoxy through targeted grants which would help teach, guide, and strengthen the Greek Orthodox Church, the Greek Orthodox family, as well as helping the poor, hungry, and sick.
