Enn Soosaar Foundation

The Enn Soosaar Foundation was founded on 14 November 2011. The goal of the Foundation is to develop, preserve and archive the legacy of a remarkable translator, publicist and member of society, Enn Soosaar.

The Foundation organizes the annual Enn Soosaar Award, now known as the Ethical Essayists Award as a result of a proposal by President Toomas Hendrik Ilves. The authors nominated are those who have helped cultivate and disseminate the same values in society with their writing to which Enn Soosaar dedicated his own fruitful and creative life.

The founder of the Foundation is Tallinn University, and its honorary doctor is Enn Soosaar (1937-2010). The Foundation’s work is curated by Tallinn University, the Estonian Ministry of Culture, the City of Tallinn, Estonian Writers’ Union, the Consistory of the Estonian Evangelical Lutheran Church and several individuals.
