As of today, we have received over $12,000 in donations to support and aid the people of Ukraine. In April, the Community Foundation granted three nonprofits $3,000 each with the donations received from the Ukraine Humanitarian Fund.

In addition, World Central Kitchen and Doctors without Borders USA were granted $5,000 each from a family fund held here at the Foundation.

The Community Foundation opened the Ukraine Humanitarian Fund in order to join the effort that so many have been putting forth to help Ukraine and those affected. The fund's purpose is to direct donations to organizations providing services and relief efforts to the people of Ukraine. The organizations that were given a grant the World Central Kitchen, forPEACE, and the Ukraine Red Cross.

The Community Foundation’s Ukraine Humanitarian Fund is still open to receive donations. The conflict is not over, and the people in Ukraine still require assistance. Donations made to the Fund will continue to provide support to these nonprofits.

World Central Kitchen (WCK) sets up food kitchens within Ukraine and surrounding areas where refugees are located. WCK buys and cooks local ingredients to Ukraine in order to help support their economy and provide meals to vulnerable communities.


forPEACE works by networking with organizations already within Ukraine. forPEACE offers these organization the funds and resources they need to help continue helping their people. Areas deeper within Ukraine are not adequately provided with supplies, and forPEACE works to help organize the transport of aid to the communities that may be lacking.


Ukraine Red Cross (Red Crescent) was selected for a grant in order to support their immediate aid and resources to those affected and/or injured by any of the armed conflict and its aftermath.
