The Association of Charities of Ukraine combines over 50 institutions – all–Ukrainian and regional charitable organizations, NGOs, socially responsible businesses and individual philanthropists. Our mission is to improve the “philanthropic” climate in Ukraine, to institutionalize charity and giving in Ukraine, to make it a social norm and a part of every day life for every Ukrainian.


The Association aims at creating the most favorable conditions for the development of charity in Ukraine – the introduction of a system for the transfer of modern technologies for conducting charitable activities, the modernization of modern legislation that regulates the implementation of charitable activities in Ukraine, the wide popularization of charity in society.


The personal participation of everyone, joint actions, and the work for public benefit are the basis upon which the Association is built. Most important for us is to spread these ideas, to make them dominant in the society, and to unite our allies and supporters.  Each individual in Ukraine should understand that he/she is in the center of attention, he/she is the main personage, and much depends on his/her own contribution. Thousands of people and hundreds of organizations already share our point of view. They have already succeeded and want to help their country. We are deeply grateful to all working with us and supporting us. Our joint action is very important, because due to it Ukraine is getting better every day. We invite everyone sharing our goals and principles to support our Association. Together we can do more! God bless Ukraine! “Glory to Ukraine!”
