Dear colleagues:
Russian manor renascence Fund’s mission is protection, reconstruction and effective modern use of the unique objects of native manor and parkland culture. The Fund’s activity is based upon the integration of social and private initiatives and the public policy of historical and cultural heritage management and protection.
Since October 2000 Russian manor renascence Fund has been developing and realizing concrete projects of the restoration of manor architecture objects, while reconstructing them for the modern utilization. Among the other trends of the Fund’s successful work are the informational and popularizational acitivity, exhibitions, scientific research and publishing. The Fund effectively cooperates with scientific, industrial and social organizations. Among the parnters of the Fund are federal, regional and local authorities; famous museums, archives and libraries; public organizations of scientists and cultural workers; leading manufacturing, financial and trading companies.
Russian manor renascence Fund is highly interested in international cooperation and attracting off-budget investment to carry out the projects on restoration and protection of Russia’s manor and parkland culture rarest samples, which namely are Uzkoye, Cheremushki, Znamenskoye-Sadki, (inside Moscow), Arkhangelskoye, Nikolskoye-Prozorovskoye, Vinogradovo (Moscow city region), Suda (Novgorod region) and many other. The Fund invites volunteers to its restoration and preservation projects in the above-named manors and parks.
The Fund is willing to render the detailed information on the manor ensembles, projects of modern use of these manor complexes, as well as the necessary information on those Fund’s activities which require sponsorship investment.

Let me make sure I understand this proposal... This fund wants naive Americans to donate money for the restoration of manors that were stolen?  Maybe if the properties were given back to the families who own them, then they could get restored!

Jacqueline,

I'm looking eyes to eyes with you (restitution ndlr)but what concerns this fund of Mrs Roosevelt they vould not be presented as naive,they are are a non profit association who only aims at promoting russian culture by restoration of russian architecture smasterpieces taht often fall in ruins  in view of the lack of state funds...

We could thanks them among others for the restoration of Arkhangelskoye(prince's Youssoupov palace) and Isnaia Poliana(Tolstoi's field)...I hope however that some russian association folow into Rosevel's foots steps...

The is the magnificent lion fence in front of the former Bezborodko residence (now a hospital). It is located on Sverdlovskaya Embankment facing the Neva river. On the opposite side of this location lies the Smolnii Embankment.
