New York, NY In light of the devastating attack on Ukraine, Victor and Elena Pinchuk and the Victor Pinchuk Foundation, Eric and Wendy Schmidt and Schmidt Futures, Robert F. Smith and Vista Equity Partners, Minderoo Foundation (founded by Dr Andrew and Nicola Forrest), and Bill Ford and the General Atlantic Foundation, announced today the launch of the Ukraine Relief Fund, a $6 million collaborative philanthropic effort to support Ukrainians most in need, starting with medical supplies. 

This humanitarian initiative is being created to represent the donors’ collective goal to condemn this brutal assault and help Ukrainians suffering as a result. 

The Ukraine Relief Fund, which will be a sponsored project of Rockefeller Philanthropy Advisors, will monitor how the humanitarian needs in Ukraine unfold and may also provide transitional, upfront support to refugees and other displaced persons.
