The crisis of war in Ukraine has been an unfolding disaster. We’re taking action today, and asking you to help.
We have always been committed to helping those in society who need us. The crisis of war in Ukraine has been an unfolding disaster, but we haven’t yet reached the worst days. So we’re taking action through iConnections Funds4Ukraine: a fundraising event that will directly benefit Ukrainians in their time of greatest need by channeling the power of our community.
Funds4Ukraine will be an online capital introduction event benefiting charities with direct involvement in Ukraine, where we will donate $100 for every meeting held on the platform during this event between allocators and managers.
We will also announce a series of one-off virtual sessions discussing and addressing the latest developments of the crisis with speakers from politics, foreign policy, economics, humanitarian relief, and the investment world.
We have already attracted the support of some the leading names in our allocator community, including:
Group Health Foundation
Mother Cabrini Healthcare
University of Pennsylvania
University of Rochester
Yale New Haven Health
Concern’s Emergency Fund is earmarked for emergencies, including the Ukraine Crisis, to be deployed rapidly.
Concern’s Emergency Response Team is currently assessing the humanitarian needs along the Ukraine borders with Poland. It plans to assess the situation along the borders of Romania and Moldova in the coming days. The team will work with national authorities, the United Nations, local non-government organizations, and Concern’s partners in the Alliance2015 group of NGOs to respond. Concern has extensive experience of dealing with refugee crises around the world, including humanitarian responses in Europe, most recently responding to the crisis in Kosovo and Albania in 1999.
In the coming days, we’ll also announce our session dates, topics and speakers. We urge you to register for this event as soon as we have dates fixed in the calendar. As always, you can stream the event through the iConnections web platform or through the iConnections App, available on Google Play or App Store.
If you’re already a member of iConnections, you’ll receive an email announcing the full details of the event and how to register. If you are not a member yet, please check our social feeds for updates as you prepare to join us for this event.
Allocators can start pledging meetings now — every meeting completed on the iConnections platform will generate $100 for Ukraine support.
Managers can join iConnections today and start supporting the event. Become a member and take meetings with allocators to create donations for Ukraine.
Everyone in our network, including service providers, can donate directly to Funds4Ukraine. In return, you’ll be featured as a partner of the campaign in all campaign-related literature and on social media.
