Support for Ukraine and Democracy

Tuesday, March 8, 2022

The Minnesota Council on Foundations stands in solidarity with the people of Ukraine and democratic institutions around the world.   Grantmakers are responding to the humanitarian crisis in Ukraine. Philanthropy plays an important role, and there are number of ways to respond. Following are a few resources we would like to lift up: 

Center for Disaster Philanthropy
CDP offers a comprehensive summary on the current situation in Ukraine, critical and ongoing needs, and how to help.

Council on Foundations
COF offers an excellent summary of resources and response funds.

Peace and Security Funders Group
Click the link above to read a Chronicle of Philanthropy op-ed by Alex Toma, Executive Director of Peace and Security Funders Group, explaining how the war in Ukraine requires a major philanthropic response and overall increase in peace and security funding.

United Way Worldwide
United Way is stepping up to support those displaced by the violence, providing life-saving relief.
