The UFF Advantage

90% of charitable funds for Ukraine are donated to large international nonprofits, and around 87% of that aid never makes it past Western Ukraine to the front lines where it is desperately needed. UFF is unique because we are small, agile, and headquartered in Kyiv. We don't lose aid to international corruption, and we don't rely on other organizations for delivery. The UFF accepts tax-exempt donations by ACH bank transfer, credit card, PayPal, Wire Transfer, Check, Donor-Advised Fund, PayPal Giving Fund, and Venmo. Learn more about our mission here.

Aid With Integrity

We know who to trust, who not to trust, and we build our humanitarian aid pipelines with integrity and less than 4% overhead costs.

Choose Your Cause

Pick one of 4 campaigns or donate to our general fund and we’ll put your money where needed most. All donations are U.S. tax exempt.

We Live in Ukraine

We're based in Kyiv, we have extensive experience with Ukraine's defenders, and we're often at the front lines. We go where other charities cannot.

Skip the Bureaucracy

We don’t leave aid with the government or other organizations. We deliver direct to those in need, shake their hands, and say "hang on, we’ll be back."
