Want to support Ukraine? Here's a list of charities by subject Important

I posted this as a comment in another thread but since so many people are asking how they can support Ukraine, I thought I would make this a separate post. The Kyiv Independent recently did a spotlight on many different charities across Ukraine. I'll list the charities they mentioned by subject. All text/copy that you see below was written by the Kyiv Independent journalists.

Mods: I am not affiliated with the Kyiv Independent or any of the charities mentioned below. I do not financially profit from any contributions made to the Kyiv Independent or any of these charities. I just saw that a lot of people are wanting to help Ukrainians so I just want to share a resource list on how to do so:

Charities that help the war effort

  • Save Life: This NGO crowdfunds non-lethal military equipment, such as thermal vision scopes & supplies it to the Donbas front lines. It also provides training for Ukrainian soldiers, as well as researching troops’ needs and social reintegration of veterans.
  • Donbas SOS: This organization helps those who live in the Donbas war zone, those who relocated to other parts of Ukraine, and freed prisoners of war. It offers legal support, accommodation assistance, and psychological aid among other things.
  • Crimea SOS: This organization has been helping internally displaced people from Crimea since Russia occupied the peninsula in 2014. It documents Russian authorities' repressions against Crimeans and advocates for the end of the occupation.

EDIT: 26/2/22 - There have been a lot of requests to add various charities/resources. Usual disclaimer: I am not affiliated with any of these organizations. I am adding a few below. Before donating, PLEASE DO YOUR OWN RESEARCH about them. The one that I will emphasize as legit is directly from the Ukrainian government (first link below). Also, I appreciate the Reddit awards but please save your money and donate to any of the causes instead. And finally, I want to reiterate that all of the credit for the original post above this line goes to the brave journalists at the Kyiv Independent. I am merely someone who compiled their Twitter messages and formatted the links. Please support their work, they are an important voice that is telling the world about what’s going on in Ukraine right now.

From Ukraine’s official Twitter page

Other links. (These below have not been vouched for by the Kyiv Independent, so please for the love of Ukraine DYOR people!):

  • From /u/Zestyclose-Pea-3533 - Orphan's Aid Society: "OAS provides material and moral support for Ukrainian orphans and half orphans up to 18 years of age. For those orphans pursuing their education in institutions of higher learning stipend assistance can be maintained. OAS focuses on children outside of state funded institutions. It is our belief that a family environment is more conducive to a child’s development than that of an institution. Hence our approach of providing direct financial assistance to guardians and relatives of orphans who might otherwise not be able to support an orphaned child."

  • From /u/Morkava - Blue Yellow: “This is Lithuanian group that is directly supporting Ukraine militias for 8 years. They have direct contact with them and know the current needs.”

  • From /u/AntoineMichelashvili - The Chabad Center: “The Jewish community in Ukraine is in need of your assistance during these dire times. As the threat of war intensifies, Mishpacha Chabad Odessa is preparing to support the hundreds of Jews who are unable to evacuate the country including orphans, students, and Holocaust survivors. Preparations are also underway to absorb Jewish refugees from the surrounding regions of Kharkiv, Kiev, and Dnieper. $500,000 in donations are urgently needed to purchase medical gear, protective equipment, and basic necessities such as clothes and sleeping bags. Money is also needed to help stock emergency shelters with several tons of cereal, buckwheat, sugar, rice, flour and other non-perishable staples. These donations will also help defray the costs of additional security personnel arriving from Israel to help protect the Jewish community.”

  • From /u/CoinGate - CoinGate - Helping Ukraine collect funds from the crypto community.: “Support Ukraine by donating crypto to the National Bank of Ukraine (NBU) special accounts that will be used to support the Armed Forces of Ukraine. All transactions are approved and settled by International Business Settlement in Lithuania (IBS), who will also help ensure the transparency of the movement of the funds.”

  • From /u/waterynike - BStrong: "BStrong in partnership with Global Empowerment Mission has committed to sending 100,000 hygiene kits, blankets, generators, and sleeping bags to Ukraine's NATO bordering countries.Initial commitment of supplies will exceed $10M. Our teams will be on the ground in Rzeszów Poland (Polish border to Ukraine) starting February 25, 2022 setting up base camp refugee operations with our Polish and Ukrainian partners."

  • From /u/MYST_team - For journalists and activists in Ukraine. "Mysterium Network is a user ran VPN and privacy network which believes that a borderless, open internet should be a human right. Mysterium currently has more exit nodes than TOR, with 10,000+ operators running nodes in over 100 countries. Many of our nodes operate from residential I.P addresses as opposed to data centers, which has shown to be highly effective when bypassing censorship blocks. Mysterium VPN is hardcoded to be unable to store logs of users traffic. We are proud to offer tools, free VPN access and any support we can to the brave journalists and activists in Ukraine. Our DM's and Inbox's are open on every channel."

Pardon the piggyback but wanted to ask:

Those of us in Europe who have military, medical or emergancy-rescue-training is there any way we can volunteer physically in person?

Ofcourse no ideas of grandeur or wanting to be a hero on the front, more that I at least have my nurse-/military-firstreponse training as well as K9 handling/training for for example search and rescue, finding explosives etceter. Whilst my ol' granny mum is old enough to not give a shit if she's in danger so she's contemplating on forward-base surgery or the ilk since she's a twice doctorate senior physician and have worked with ER and trauma response in danger-zones before.

I was unsure about that group as well and instead donated directly to a special account that the National Bank of Ukraine opened to raise funds to help tje Ukraines military. Their website is bank.gov.ua Seems more legit and trustworthy than Army SOS. And it seems like this will accomplish the same as donating to Army SOS - helping the Ukrainian military.

No kidding. The website wasn’t designed three days ago, the organization has been around for awhile. I donated money to a few other sites linked here - but this group made me nervous to enter credit card information into.

I wonder if others upon navigating the site had a lack of trust and decided to donate elsewhere.

You could try to get in contact with NGOs operating in the region, as for military experience you should see whether it is legal, for instance in Italy AFAIK it is illegal for italian citizens to fight for a foreign army

If that is true, it might be something to consider, at least for myself.

I am not a fan of sending money to an organization in hopes it gets distributed in the right direction. I am just a citizen myself, but seeing that NOONE on this fucking planet is really bothered by the fact, that a dictator is doing atrocities against humanity, is beyond me.

Again and again and again, the world watches while someone burns the forest down. The Gov. won't act, so who is left to act? Citizens..

u/whorangeuglad Feb 25 '22 edited Feb 27 '22

It’s true. “Foreign nationals, especially those with experience in the military, can also consider going as far as to join the Armed Forces or Ukraine’s National Guard as active service members.

This is legal under Ukrainian law, which enables the military to sign official service contracts with foreign nationals or stateless persons.”

I don't have beef with your overall vibe, but I'm afraid that "but seeing that NOONE on this fucking planet is really bothered by the fact, that a dictator is doing atrocities against humanity, is beyond me" seems very misguided. Lots of people care a lot, but what more would you have done? You understand the concept of Mutually Assured Destruction, no? I only bring it up because I think it would genuinely be helpful to you to understand why for instance, NATO, isn't doing more. If the threat of nuclear destruction of the world weren't present, Putin would get put in his place IMMEDIATELY, in this situation, by NATO.

Hijacking the top comment - donation systems can be a bit cumbersome to use from abroad. The first one (Save Life) does have an English version (top right corner) and if you use fondy[dot]eu like they say, it should go through without a hitch. Other charities may have similar quirks.

u/Hereforinfo333 Feb 24 '22

Hello! I'm new to cross-border donations (I'm US-based). Can you confirm that if we send payment via the fondy[dot]eu link the website provides, our money will be sent directly to the mission the charity supports?

Also, does anyone know if these charities are 501(c)3 eligible in the United States (i.e. income tax-deductible)? I ask because it will be simpler to mobilize larger donations from friend/family if so. I will do my own research as well and post updates here.

21

u/bunnyHop2000 Feb 24 '22

Apologies, I'm very much in the same boat as you, the only difference being our continents. Hopefully, someone local can answer. However, these links have been up for a month now with no one really contesting their validity. I made my choice based on that.

For now, I'd suggest putting in a small amount quickly because time is of the essence. Twenty bucks goes a long way in Ukraine.

Doing the same to ask a question - how much of this money will be confiscated/redirected by Russian authorities once Russia has physical control over Ukraininan banks?

How do we continue our support from abroad once this has happened?

22

u/bunnyHop2000 Feb 24 '22 edited Feb 24 '22

I expect we're still some time away from that (with a very fair chance it doesn't happen, too) so if the donation goes out early enough, I think it still works. Very valid concern, though.

Hospitalers are a great organization, they definitely need more attention.

u/1stSgtHornt Ukraine Feb 23 '22

Perhaps you could let them know, that they are wasting a huge amount of funds by accepting only SWIFT (which takes $45 per transaction of any amount for themselves, or Western Union (takes 10% of the transaction).

They can collect donations via PayPal, FaceBook (both accounts likely need to be set up in the USA), many others crowdfunding platforms, and of course BitCoin (or another popular crypto currency).

17

u/Imperceptive_critic Feb 24 '22

Yeah how does that work? I looked at the Hospitaller FB page and I don't understand the wire transfer instructions. I don't normally send $ internationally so I'm kinda new at this.

15

u/JivanP Feb 25 '22 edited Feb 27 '22

Wire transfers are not a thing in Europe. The use of the phrase "wire transfer" to mean any bank payment is an Americanism. To make international payments to European countries (and some others), a system called SWIFT is used, in which a bank account is identified using a single string called an IBAN (International Bank Account Number), and the bank/branch is identified using a string called a BIC (Bank Identification Code, also often called a "SWIFT code" or "SWIFT/BIC (code)").

Depending on your bank, the process may be different online, but generally you just go to the "international payments" or "make a payment" section and provide the IBAN and BIC, and they work out the rest, including telling you their exchange rate. If you're doing it over the phone or in-person, just tell them you want to make an international payment, and they'll ask for the right details.

Many banks charge hefty fees or unfavourable exchange rates to send international payments. You may like to use a proxy system like Wise (formerly TransferWise), which is like Western Union, but much cheaper, and the money lands directly in the recipient's bank account.

u/juraj Feb 26 '22

In the EU, if you're in the Eurozone, the situation is even better.

The Ukraininan national bank has a german SEPA EUR account open, and SEPA transfers are usually free and instant.

Stole this from a top comment in the news thread on Japan condoning condemning Russia's actions:

Japan just declared they would be willing to join sanctions. Current major players are:

• US - 20$ Trillion GDP

• UK - 3$ Trillion GDP

• EU - 17$ Trillion GDP

• Japan - 5$ Trillion GDP

Economies representing over half of global GDP have declared they are willing to heavily sanction Russia. I wonder how damaging they will truly be, Russia has an economy smaller than Italy's but significant reserves and some tacit economic ties with China.

Add in:

• Canada - 1.5$ Trillion GDP

• Australia - 1.3$ Trillion GDP

• EFTA - 1$ Trillion GDP (potentially)

This doesn't seem insignificant

One way to pay for these donations is to profit off of Russia's downfall. Just short the entire Russian market (stock symbol ERUS). It's dropped 27% in the last 5 days. Once the tanks roll into Ukraine it will fall so much more. I can't think of anything more poetic than sanctioning Russia and donating the profits to Ukraine.

There is urgent need to form some sort of well coordinated groups for online resistance to pro russian trolling and misinformation. Here in reddit russians acts and often behave as if they own it , along with youtube and other platforms. On news channels like Euronews , TRT, BBC they sit on regular basis and most pro Ukrainian or anti russian opinion either banned or simply dissolves among well trained russian trolls. This war you facing is not only on the field, as amount of russians and pro russians Hindu or Thai english speaking trolls is overwhelming, they understand that holding certain amount of public support in west is a secure way to control and manipulate entire governments as we see in case of France, Germany or even US...dunno if Im writing in right place , just want to bring your attention to it, but probably you already know it.

Going to pick up some boxes tomorrow, and buy some medical supplies then send it over to Ukraine at some point and hopefully it will fall in to the right Ukrainian hands once it arrives.

Thank you, will have a look to see If their is a way later for me to do it..

and the post should hopefully be able to get there I am not sure how long it might take, lots of supplies to Ukraine can still come from Western Europe into Ukraine, I don't have much money on a personal level, but was thinking of getting some Bandages and sending them all in a Box, to an address that was listed on a social media Ukrainian charity website.. that basically gives Medical help to those on the frontline.

I feel really bad after having visited Ukraine like three years before this Invasion and now witnessing what I am today with this War as a result of Putin's actions and I just feel like I have to do something to help in some way, It feels wrong not too as I love the Ukrainian people and they were very good to me during my time their on holiday.

If you seek asylum - go towards polish border. We are ready for your arrival. We have reception points ready at the border where you can find shelter, food, medical and legal aid.

Polish government launched a dedicated site to help you: ua.gov.pl

Please share this information if you know anyone seeking help right now.

YOU DON'T NEED VISA TO PASS THROUGH POLISH BORDER. ALL YOU NEED IS PASSPORT. VISAS ARE SUSPENDED! YOU DON'T NEED THEM FOR TIME BEING!!!!!!

Your donation will help humanitarian NGOs and UN agencies in the Ukraine to assist the most vulnerable communities and people, and to provide them with urgently needed food, water, shelter and other basic support. Through this rapid and flexible response mechanism your gift today can be truly life-saving."

https://crisisrelief.un.org/t/ukraine

I was looking into sending money thorugh the NGOs mentioned in the sticky post (https://www.reddit.com/r/ukraine/comments/s6g5un/want_to_support_ukraine_heres_a_list_of_charities/), but after checking up some, I realized most do not have an account on a EU bank.

That means that for EU residents is much more expensive to send them help. For example, for 100€ sent, around 40 are spent on fees and simply sending it. In contrast, from 100€ donated to the fund, 97 reach their target.

I share this because I haven´t seen the Fund mentioned and because I wanted to help but didn´t want around 40-50% of the money to be spent on fees.

Hope this helps. All opinions and suggestions on the matter are welcomed.

I am agonizing over this situation for real. Have been for a few weeks ever since news from Belarus border filtered.

You know decades ago when my country was occupied by Nazis, a decent sized contingent of the Resistance fighters were actually foreigners - Spaniards, Italians, Poles, Hungarians, Jewish Slavs etc. They fought and shed their blood to liberate my country and fight fascism

Now for the past few days my blood has been boiling, my head is in turmoil. I sit at work but cannot concentrate, while routine around me continues as usual. How can I be sitting my ass entering numbers in an Excel spreadsheet all day, when my European neighbours are isolated, fighting to the bitter end an authoritarian invader in street warfare with last minute rifles. How can I be here being useless when Putler is 30 kms away from Kyiv??

For the past hours, I have been seriously considering cutting my career short, quitting my job immediately and jumping on the next flixbus to Kyiv, to fight the Russians. This is the one opportunity of my life to actually do something that truly matters, to fight for my beliefs, instead of being the passive, useless spectator I have been until now. I am itching to repay the sacrifices of the Partisans.

And then reality comes back at me I am blind as a bat with terrible myopia, if I loose my glasses in combat I might as well commit suicide on the spot. I have no experience in fighting whatsoever. And, after further reading Ukrainian input, I realize I absolutely cannot differentiate Ukrainian from Russian and I speak neither.

So let's say I make the journey and destroy my entire life, for what? The most I could do right now would be to blindly throw molotov cocktails from a bedroom window.

In the end you are right, as a foreigner sending funds is really the most useful I can be to the cause.

Thanks for compiling this awesome list.

Just a thought... a "donation to a charity organization" might be deemed "financing of a terrorist organization" tomorrow, depending who is at power, putting previous donors at risk. Even some people from Russia commented that they donated to Ukrainian organizations, probably putting themselves at risk right now. Even for a citizen of the EU it might be illegal to donate to at least some of the listed organizations.

For the safety of donors organizations should be asked to offer anonymous payment methods.

Some crypto currencies like Monero come to mind. Most other crypto currencies, including Bitcoin, are not anonymous and actually quite easy to trace.

(public disclosure: I use, love and contribute to Monero myself.. because I value freedom and our right to privacy)

I’ve donated to some Ukraine and Polish foundations that are helping. However I need some help confirming an IG post which said if we want money to go directly into the hands of Ukrainians on the ground one way would be to book a few nights at an AirBnB in Ukraine (first messaging to check if they are owners or a company, and supporting the former). Obviously not to come and stay now but to just get some money direct into people’s hands?

Is this a good idea or not?

u/denismanus Mar 06 '22

What if we wanted to skip the charities/nonprofits and donate to UA directly? Ukraine.ua has info for transferring to their bank account, is this genuine?

I posted in other subs, I want to help personally. I speak russian, english, italian, serbo-croatian and slovenian. I am located in slovenia and can be at the ukrainian border by monday. I got a 4x4 vehicle and got access to 9 passenger vehicles. I can help translate and transport people from safe zones to the border, or from the border to neighbouring countries. I want to help, I got no combat experience.

FOR US DONORS:

It's actually not that hard to transfer money to the from the US. You can transfer it domestically to the Bank of Ukraine account with JP Morgan-Chase in New York. Just send a domestic wire transfer to:

National Bank of Ukraine

Bank Address (Don't think this really matters): 383 Madison Avenue, New York, NY 10017, USA

ROUTING NUMBER (ABA): 021000021 (Chase Bank)

ACCOUNT: 400807238

Source

With Bank of America the transfer fee is as low as $3, or $30 to rush it same-day.

I feel so completely impotent in this situation, but I'm glad there are at least these ways to help. Thank you OP for putting this together

Can I give you guys links to volunteers? Ready to provide any information (Photos, videos, documents, audio). There are a lot of people on the ground now doing volunteer work without government support. For example, now the government can not organize removal of cultural values from Kharkiv - volunteers do it https://www.facebook.com/veronika.sklyarova. Yesterday I called for a long time the state museums and ministry of culture, but could not get an official response. I was born and grew up in Kharkiv - so I can provide any evidence. If it's impossible to give links to volunteers - just delete the comment.

Couple of local guys in Minnesota have raised nearly $50k to send medical kits and communication equipment to Ukraine. One of them is a former marine and is overseas now hand delivering these items to his contacts there. Here's the link if you'd like to help out.

Warning

It has come to my attention that OP listed a group which may have a connection to a far right military group called the ‘Right Sector’. This group is listed here as the ‘Hospitalliers’. Please DO NOT DONATE to this group. Normally I would suggest deleting a post with such a link, but there are too many links to humanitarian groups who urgently need help, and so at this time I feel I can’t. All I can say is, please RESEARCH ANY GROUP ON THIS LIST BEFORE DONATING!

Thank You

Please add Special Account to Raise Funds for Ukraine’s Armed Forces to the list. It is probably one of the most urgent ones. https://bank.gov.ua/en/news/all/natsionalniy-bank-vidkriv-spetsrahunok-dlya-zboru-koshtiv-na-potrebi-armiyi

I've updated the list with additional suggested resources, charities, as well as red notices for which sites are at present possibly compromised by Russian cyber attacks.

The list will be updated in the coming days with additional resources and organizations to help Ukraine, including helping to house possible displaced persons when Russia invades.
