How to apply for funding

Postcode Ukraine provides grant funding to charities and voluntary organisations in Ukraine who are helping those affected by the war. We have funded projects supporting frontline humanitarian aid, assistance with evacuation, rebuilding shelters and playgrounds, mental health initiatives among others. We are always open to new project ideas where they directly support the needs of the people of Ukraine during this time of war.

We endeavour to build long lasting and meaningful relationships with the charities we support and have created a three tier funding programme:

  • Key Partners - for grants of $10,000-$25,000 / 370 000 UAH - 925 000 UAH
  • Partners - for grants of $5,000-$10,000 / 185 000 UAH - 370 000 UAH
  • Affiliate charities - for grants of up to $5,000 / 185 000 UAH

We consider new applications for grant funding on a rolling basis. Once a charity has been accepted for funding we consider them part of our wider family. They will be invited to apply for funding during quarterly or bi-annual funding rounds. In most instances, we will begin our funding relationship at the Affiliate Charity level with small grants of around $2,000.
