Economists for Ukraine
A global non-profit working to end Russia's invasion, support Ukrainians, and rebuild.
We leverage economic expertise and technology to fight off Russia's invasion, increase Ukraine's resilience, and rebuild for a strong, peaceful, and prosperous future.
Our Programs in Numbers
Our programs are active since March 2022 and expanding. We respond quickly to new needs, such as setting up backup Internet in response to Russia’s terrorist strikes against Ukraine’s infrastructure. All of our initiatives are geared towards long-term sustainability and economic resilience: helping Ukraine resist now, while setting up effective frameworks for post-war reconstruction and development though digital aid platforms, resilient infrastructure, and funding science.
To date, we have raised and spent more than $1.4M in Ukraine. Below is a snapshot of what we have achieved. We are actively fundraising and look forward to expanding our impact with your help. All contributions are fully tax-deductible, and 100% of the funds are used for Ukraine.
