The Anton Chekhov Foundation

Welcome to the website of the Anton Chekhov Foundation (UK charity No 1128310).

The goal of the Anton Chekhov Foundation (ACF) is to honour Chekhov’s literary and humanitarian legacy through a variety of cultural and charitable projects. A registered UK charity, it was established in 2008, with the initial aim of campaigning for the long-term preservation of the remarkable dacha in Yalta which Chekhov built for himself and his family at the end of his life. Its activities are currently focused on translation projects and the creation of hospital gardens.

Patrons: Kenneth Branagh, Ralph Fiennes, Michael Frayn, Evgeny Lebedev, Prunella Scales, Tom Stoppard
