The Tolstoy Foundation, established in 1939 by Alexandra Tolstoy, youngest daughter of Leo Tolstoy, and others, is a non-profit international philanthropic organization without political or religious affiliation, committed to a dual mission of humanitarian and cultural/educational concerns.
The Foundation’s activities focus on the empowerment of orphaned and disadvantaged children in Russia, primarily through education and practical training programs at home and at the Foundation’s center in Valley Cottage, NY. The Foundation also provides humanitarian assistance to the distressed, sick and aged worldwide. It also operates homes for the aged in the US, France, and Latin America.
In September 2007, the Saint Sergius of Radonezh Assembly and Learning Center, in association with the Tolstoy Foundation, Inc., opened its doors to its first students. The Center helps to preserve Russian culture and language, welcomes new students and organizes wonderful cultural events.
