12 January 2016

The Art, Science and Sport Charity Foundation is celebrating its 10th birthday! It began its activities in January 2006 under the previous name, The Art and Sport Foundation.

Throughout the ten years of the Foundation’s existence many cultural, sports, scientific and socially significant events of varying scales have been held thanks to its support.

The Art, Science and Sport Charity Foundation participates in the lives of museums and galleries like The Pushkin State Museum of Fine Arts, Peterhof, Tarkhany and Garage. Major exhibitions in fine arts have taken place with the support of the Foundation, such as “The Pre-Raphaelites: The Victorian Avant-Garde”, “Whistler and Russia”, an exhibition on William Turner and others

As a long-term partner of the Bolshoi Theatre, the Sovremennik Theatre, the St. Petersburg Maly Drama Theatre, and the Mariinsky Theatre, the Foundation pays close attention to the Russian theatre scene. Foundation funds were used to finance multiple theatre performances, as well as numerous successful concerts, tours and festivals.

Caring for Russia’s celebrated academic heritage is another top priority of the Art, Science and Sport Charity Foundation. The Foundation takes a keen interest in the development of Russian science. During the years of its activities, a number of publishing projects have been implemented, comprehensive support has been given to educational institutions, and not least, scientific exchanges, exhibitions and festivals promoting science have all been held.

Another of the Foundation’s focal points is sports. Fencing, football, hockey, judo, volleyball and many other sports are actively making progress at both domestic and international levels thanks to the support of the Foundation.

Lastly, work in the social sphere is of profound importance to the Foundation. In setting up the Assistance Programme for Children’s Social Services Institutions, the Support Programme for Visually Impaired Children, and the “A Future with Confidence” social adjustment project, the Foundation collaborates with more than 50 institutions for orphans and children left without parental care, as well as children with health conditions.

In preserving and expanding Russia’s cultural heritage, developing sports, promoting science and providing social assistance, The Art, Science and Sport Charity Foundation creates a set of spiritual values and a socially responsible atmosphere, for the present and future of Russia.
