Charity

IWCK is a nonprofit, charitable organisation whose aim is to support local Ukrainian charities. They work directly with IWCK’s target beneficiaries including the elderly, the disabled, children, and women in need.

The IWCK Charity Committee is a group of dedicated women whose main activity is to run the charitable side of IWCK. Every minute of donated time is a big help because the time put in by volunteers ensures the successful implementation and monitoring of programs (annual grants, special programs, food delivery, etc.).

Volunteer opportunities are versatile: monitor one of the current Grant Competition projects, volunteer at the Annual Charity Bazaar (our main fundraising event of the year) or join the Food run.

Sign-up sheets will be available at the first Charity Committee meeting. These meetings are held monthly at IWCK office.
