Ukrainian World Congress announces Community Development and Advocacy Fund

Toronto, Canada – In a historical first, the Ukrainian World Congress (UWC) has established the Community Development and Advocacy Fund to support Ukrainian NGOs in the Diaspora. The fund was launched in 2022 with an initial donation of $50,000 CAD from UWC President Paul Grod.

“Making our communities around the world stronger is one of the UWC’s strategic priorities. Together, we are building Ukrainian institutions, a real Ukrainian world, from cradle to grave,” said UWC President Paul Grod. “With this newly established fund, the UWC will be able

to provide strong support to local community initiatives that advocate for Ukrainian issues and help NGOs in new parts of the world. We’re building communities together!”

The Fund will provide co-financing for projects aimed at:

develop communities and/or support community leadership development
– promote truthful image of Ukraine and/or Ukrainian people
– inform about Ukraine’s history, culture or today’s situation
– foster Ukrainian schooling in the diaspora
– foster Ukrainian female leadership and Ukrainian female civic movement in the diaspora
– engage youth in Ukrainian communities and promote Ukrainian youth community leadership

Applications will be accepted from February to May 1, 2022. The projects selected for support will be announced in June. Project evaluation criteria, the project application form and additional information are available on the UWC website .
