Australian Charities Supporting Ukrainian People

On 24 February 2022, Russia engaged in a large-scale invasion of Ukraine, dramatically escalating the Russo-Ukrainian War started in 2014. It is the largest conventional warfare operation in Europe since World War II1.

At Giving Guide we’ve been provoked by this deplorable act and wondered how we could help. Giving Guide helps Australian donors find charities close to their home and heart. With our hearts troubled by the current situation we thought we could help by providing you with some Ukrainian focused charities to consider supporting.

At Giving Guide we want to improve trust between Australian charities and donors by providing a resource where donors can analyse charity information before they donate. We also want to help donors find charities in their neighbourhood, by cause, beneficiary, or keyword.

There are several large humanitarian and disaster relief charities performing important roles in supporting the people of Ukraine. A simple online search for “charities supporting Ukraine” will help you find more of these charities and learn about what they are doing to help.

Giving Guide has information on existing Australian charities that openly support Ukraine and its people. Please note we do not endorse individual charities and claim no liability for their governance, financial and charitable practices. We believed it was important to provide a list of charities that support Ukrainians here in Australia and abroad. Please have a look at the GG article 10 Things to Check Before Donating to a Charity as you consider supporting them.

If we missed any charities that should be on the list in the following table, we apologise and request you please send the name of the charity and Australian Business Number (ABN). To investigate our oversight.

In hope of a prompt, peaceful, permanent, and positive resolution.

Methodology: All charities searched are registered with the Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission. On 28th of February we searched “Ukraine”; “Ukrainian”, then “Ukrain” into the search function of Giving Guide. We then cross referenced the results and removed any duplicates leaving 36 charities. We then sorted them by main activity and main beneficiary2. The charities listed may support other activities and beneficiaries; this information will be listed on their single charity page on Giving Guide including a link to their website, if provided. We also took the opportunity to scan some of their Governing Documents and Activity Statements to ensure the charity referenced Ukraine or its people.

  2. Every charity must provide a main activity and main beneficiary when submitting their information to the ACNC.

About Us

Integrity, honesty and unbiased assessment are at the core of Giving Guide’s mission. The charity sector is important to the economy and culture of Australia, We believe independently assessing the accountability, transparency and effectiveness of the sector beyond what is currently available is important to it's future.

Giving Guide anticipates enhancing the level of governance and transparency in the Australian charity sector. An independent charity advisor would benefit the sector by helping charities consider exceeding the existing governance standards of the Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission (ACNC) to the benefit of donors.
