The Council is proud to join our partners from around the world to stand in solidarity with the people of Ukraine as we mark the anniversary of the invasion. After the Transatlantic Conversation call on February 24, 2023 that marked exactly one year since the invasion of Ukraine by the Russian regime, the Council signed onto a statement of support with Philea and several other organizations.

Transatlantic Conversation with 2022 Nobel Peace Prize Laureate Oleksandra Matviichuk

As the Russian regime's devastating war and destruction in Ukraine continues, private funders stand in solidarity and substantially contribute to supporting Ukrainians, addressing humanitarian and other critical needs. Our goal is to provide philanthropic funders with the latest insights, commentary, and analysis on Ukraine's emergency and evolving needs, as well as initial work and plans for recovery and reconstruction through the spirit of the Marshall Plan, an essential foundation of global security, stability, and prosperity.  

This session was held on 24 February 2023, marked the first full year of the war in Ukraine by spotlighting how mobilized private funders and transatlantic support have responded. As Ukrainians and their global partners address current, near-term, and longer-term needs and plan for recovery, modernization, and a new economic and political path forward, guest speakers will take stock of the world's strategic investment in Ukraine and outline the vision for continued philanthropic leadership.  

In partnership with Philea, the Council on Foundations, Community Foundations of Canada, Philanthropic Foundations Canada, Charles Stewart Mott Foundation, the German Marshall Fund of the United States, and the European Community Foundation Initiative convened on 24 February for a conversation with 2022 Nobel Peace Prize Laureate Oleksandra Matviichuk.
