STROIKA ukraine fund

Respond to the crisis. Reshape the future.
Rebuild with STROIKA.

Donate today

STROIKA’s rapid response Ukraine Fund moves your tax-deductible donations directly to trusted local organizations — to community groups meeting urgent wartime needs today, and rebuilding Ukraine tomorrow.

From Kharkiv to Kyiv, from Odesa to Lviv, activists who have been working for decades to build a more inclusive and democratic Ukraine have pivoted to meet the needs of their war-torn communities. They are now running shelters, documenting war crimes, and navigating wartime supply chains to deliver food & medical supplies.

The problem is that these local groups have funding gaps for wartime relief efforts, and international aid is not sufficiently covering their needs.

The STROIKA Ukraine Fund provides them unmediated relief — fast.

Every $5,000 raised is transferred to one of our trusted partners on a rotating basis, as general support grants directly to their bank accounts, empowering group leaders to decide where funds can make the greatest impact.

where your funds go

Our partners are feminist and Roma activists, human rights lawyers, public health professionals, independent journalists, environmental defenders, and educators. Beyond the current crisis, these community leaders are committed to the long-term work of rebuilding a democratic society for those forced to leave, those who will return, and those who remained – and they need your urgent support.

Our process hinges on transparency, efficiency, and trust.

For over a decade, we’ve built robust local networks in Ukraine and have vetted our partners through extensive due diligence. We have carefully selected organizations that have significant wartime funding gaps and insufficient support from existing international aid. Each group is providing rapid-response services, and is in dire need of funds.

Our partners must meet the following criteria:

  • A strong track record building Ukraine’s civil society over the past decade
  • A history of exemplary financial stewardship and efficient use of funds
  • Effective emergency response during the COVID-19 pandemic and the war
  • A firm commitment to supporting marginalized communities
  • A proven ability to responsibly navigate wartime supply chains
