Foundations, large companies, high net-worth individuals, startups, venture firms, schools, small businesses, crypto communities, artists and individual sponsors have supported families through The $1K Project for Ukraine.
Here is how YOU can get involved.
#StartupsForUkraine - A campaign to show the collective power of the entrepreneurial community. We called on 1,000 Startups and Venture Capital Firms to donate $10,000 and sponsor 10 families each.
We received an overwhelming support and over $3,000,000 has been already donated by these organizations and many others.
If you are a large company looking to empower your employees to help Ukrainian families here are 3 ways you can get involved today:
1. Donate: Every $100,000 donated funds 100 families.
2. Offer an employee match through Benevity or another program.
3. Spread Awareness: Do a single day The $1k Project for Ukraine home page and social take over.
Email email@example.com if you are interested in making a large corporate contribution.
Thank you to employees of Yahoo!, Google, McKinsey, Morgan Stanley, Microsoft and others for donating!
