Ukraine Aid. Community


Who we are

Ukraine Aid. Community (UA.C) is a non-profit founded by a group of like-minded Ukrainian, Russian, and US researchers, entrepreneurs, and academics for whom Ukraine's fight for freedom hits close to home: family, friends, ancestry, language, and more.Across the board, UA.C's founders see it as their personal and moral duty to do what they can to help Ukraine and its people.

To that end, UA.C collects donations from the public to provide Ukraine with what it needs most, such as humanitarian aid, protective gear, and more. We do this through our end-to-end logistics network that relies on Points of Contact in Ukraine and Poland. From Ukrainian government representatives and to local volunteers, these Points of Contact inform us of what exact supplies are most urgently needed.

UA.C's mission is to employ its project management and logistics capabilities to ensure accurate and timely delivery of much needed humanitarian aid and other supplies to the Ukrainian people.

UA.C fulfills this mission in five steps:

  1. Obtain real-time, up to date information from our Points of Contact (e.g., government officials and civil activists) in Poland and Ukraine on what supplies are most urgently needed.
  2. Research manufacturers of the needed supplies and set a fundraising goal based on their prices.
  3. Make our fundraising initiative public, with all donations going toward said initiative (unless requested otherwise).
  4. Once the targeted fundraising amount is reached, we contact the suppliers to place our order, setting the manufacturing process in motion.
  5. When the supplies are ready, we arrange for shipping to one of our logistics hubs (in Poland and Ukraine) for subsequent delivery to the targeted recipients.

As a federal income tax-exempt private organization under IRC Section 501(c)(3), we ensure the utmost transparency in our work. If you have any questions about our work or would like to cooperate with UA.C, feel free to contact us.
