Philanthropy for Ukraine – Global Philanthropy’s Crucial Role in Ukraine on the Second Anniversary of Russia’s Invasion
The Council on Foundations, the Mott Foundation and Philea will host “Global Philanthropy’s Crucial Role in Ukraine on the Second Anniversary of Russia’s Invasion”, online on 29 February, to learn more about the present state of Ukraine and opportunities for philanthropy.
Global philanthropy generously provided initial humanitarian aid to the Ukraine crisis caused by Russia’s unprovoked war, offering essential support like food, clothing, and shelter. Yet, as Putin’s invasion shows no signs of ending, Ukrainians confront escalating needs. Despite reduced news coverage, Ukraine’s large-scale devastation and human suffering demands a renewed philanthropic commitment.
This event will feature:
- Timothy Snyder, Yale University Historian and Author of Bloodlands: Europe Between Hitler and Stalin and The Road to Unfreedom: Russia, Europe, America
- Yuliya Tychkivska, Executive Director, Aspen Institute Kyiv
- Ondřej Liška, Regional Director, Europe, Porticus
The event forms part of Philea’s Philanthropy for Ukraine initiative.
