The Tsukanov Family Foundation (“TFF”) is a London based charity supporting education, arts and culture in Russia and the UK.

TFF aids exceptionally talented children in academics or music through extending scholarships and bursaries in a number of the best British schools, including Eton College, St Paul’s Girls’ School, Royal College of Music, and the schools of Alpha Plus Group.

In Russia, TFF has worked for a number of years with Spivakov's Foundation, a charity established by the world acclaimed violinist Vladimir Spivakov in 1991 to aid the education, as well as musical and artistic development, of talented children in Russia and the former Soviet republics.

TFF supports various artistic projects, with an emphasis on the Russian post-war art. The current exhibition in Saatchi Gallery is the largest single endeavour to date aimed at promoting Russian art of this period. TFF owns one of the largest collection of Russian post-war art.


TFF has worked for years with the leading Russian museums, including the Tretyakov Gallery (for which the Foundation has financed acquisitions on an annual basis).

The Foundation's other affiliations include the National Russian Philarmonic Orchestra, the London Philarmonic Orchestra (LPO) and the Royal Opera House.
