Yaltah's memory has been honoured with a memorial fund* in her name. The primary objective of the fund is to (help) develop the talents of young pianists who have already given proof of their outstanding musical ability and promise in the practice of their art, by means of awards and bursaries.

The distinguished French pianist, Cécile Ousset, is Honorary Patron of the Yaltah Menuhin Memorial Fund. As part of a revamped prize package for the Leeds International Piano Competition, the Yaltah Menuhin Award will become a permanent feature of The Leeds and will be presented to the 2018 Competition pianist who demonstrates the greatest collaborative and empathetic qualities in the chamber performance of the semi-final.
