Giving something back to the local community has been a part of IWCK life since its foundation in 1992. We seek to help NGOs which work with women, sick children, the disabled and the elderly.

Thanks to the traditional IWCK Charity Bazaar and our other fundraising initiatives we are able to help Ukrainian citizens in need, through NGOs which support them. Our members broaden their knowledge and horizons by participating in the food delivery program or visiting orphanages.

Each year IWCK organizes a Grant Competition when dedicated IWCK members form a Grant Review Committee and spend many hours assessing applications so that the very best projects can be selected and supported. In 2018 IWCK already approved financing of 25 projects.

Throughout the year IWCK also awards Special Initiative Grants, again to help women, sick children, the disabled and the elderly.

You are very welcome to join our charity activities by becoming a member of the Charity Committee, volunteering at our events or even creating your own initiative to support IWCK.
