About us

     Ukrainian Philanthropic Marketplace is Ukraine’s first independent nationwide social online philanthropy infrastructure. We provide a unique service for Philanthropists and for those who need help.

 

     Here every man, every company or organization can find and support a charitable Project of their choice. And to make it the easiest and the most convenient way for themselves.

    Here each Hryvnia devoted to charity, will be spent only for its intended purpose. Each Donor will receive a full report for each spent hryvnia. And, of course, sincere words of gratitude from those whose lives have improved thanks to your donations.

 

     Together we change the world & create opportunities. An opportunity to unite many people behind the problems that we can solve together. An opportunity to help the needy. An opportunity to check personally how and for what the charitable money will be spent. In the end, an opportunity for everyone to make our world more kindly and better.

 

     Our goal is to create, to maintain and to develop an effective collaborative platform of donors, non-governmental organizations (Operators of Help) and recipients of help, strengthening the non-profit sector and philanthropy in Ukraine in a such way. The project was initiated by the grant of the Victor Pinchuk Foundation.

 

     Trust of people is our highest value.

How it works

      Ukrainian Philanthropic Marketplace (UBB) is actually an online store. We don’t offer "microwaves and cosmetics", but the opportunity to save or at least improve the lives of individuals.

 

     The Ukrainian Philanthropic Marketplace raises money for worthy causes and Projects throughout the country. Every Project is a story of individuals who need your help. Each project is someone's problem, history, someone's pain and hope. Our task is to gather those who want to help and those who need it together.  

 

     Here everyone can become a Donor: it is easy, simple and convenient. Choose any project, enter a sum into the appropriate field, and just click the "Support" button. And we guarantee that your donation reaches its goal. Every donor will receive a full report about spending money donated by him. Moreover, together with our Operators of Help we are open for the cooperation. Anyone can personally come and make sure that everything written in the report is the truth. Because Ukrainian Philanthropic Marketplace can work only thanks to the people's trust.

 

     Each history is the Project submitted by the Operator of Help. At the very beginning, to select the first Operators of Help, we processed the base of registered NGOs and charity organizations of the Ministry of Justice – at that time there were more than 4 000 positions, then we have filtered "dead", formal, political and suspicious organizations. We have visited all the regions of Ukraine and the true Activists there. Nowadays our Operatoes of Help are more than 120 registered NGOs that operate in accountable, transparent and public way. And we are ready to vouch for them.

 

 

 

 

      We conclude an accreditation agreement with each Operator of Help. In case of the first proven misuse of funds received via UBB, Operator of Help loses its accreditation.

 

     UBB does not receive a percentage of the donations. 100% of your money, except on-line payment commision, allocates directly for the Project. The expenses for UBB support are funded through the budget of large domestic as well as international charity funds. You can also support the activities of Ukrainian Philanthropic Marketplace for your contributions – it helps us to work.

 

     Charity Projects’ donations are accumulated on the bank account of UBB until the sum is raised.

 

     Registration documents of UBB

 

 

 

     Now you know how it works. There’s left nothing at all – just to choose any Project, enter a sum into the appropriate field, and just click the "Donate" button.

 

 

                                  How to get help

Only accredited Operator of Help can post a project on ubb.org.ua. ICF "Ukrainian Philanthropic Marketplace" does not accept applications for help from individuals.

 

If you need help, please contact one of the ubb.org.ua partner charity foundations, and better is to email a couple of them at once because some funds may be more loaded and respond to your request later than expected.

 

To ask for help:

  • go to the section "Operators of Help"
  • select a category in the filters (the right column) to which the future project will belong to (if you need money for treatment, so choode the category of "Health", etc.)
  • choose some charities and ask them for help

 

Once one of the funds agrees to help you, it sends ICF "Ukrainian Philanthropic Marketplace" an application with the relevant documents to publish the project. If the project meets all the requirements, it will be published on the website ubb.org.ua.

 

ICF "Ukrainian Philanthropic Marketplace" does not provide financial aid, but offers a tool for fundraising.

Tatiana Raikova, PR-manager

Almost all her life she dreamed that her work would be associated with charity. She always worries about the people around more than about herself. Drowning herself in work of the Fund, she actively builds a web of communication, using the extensive experience of relations with media and the public. Under her belt there are many years of effective work in the television and jurisprudence branches. In everyday life she practices yoga, loves walking in parks, traveling, writing poetry and drawing funny pictures.

 

 

 

 

 

Julia Glushko, manager of Cooperation with NGOs

She's extrovert, she's able to find a common language with almost any person. Julia is flexible, allowing her to work in any team. But she never oversteps hes moral principles and doesn't do things because of what she might be ashamed. The quotation "Success is never blamed" she puts into her life with great reservations, and goes to her goal, trying to go only by her own, using honest and open methods. In the field of charity she works not so long, but believes that "Charity is a city where every human builds all the buldings together" (Ralph Waldo Emerson).

 

 

 

 

Yuriy Volodin, IT-department

 

Manages all information flows with the help of IT and without the letter. Loves created  "with soul"  projects as much as his mother's Borsch. During the crazy youth he used to play guitar in a Kharkov rock band named Richie Kolyuchiy. If Marilyn Manson or Mudvayne sound too loud from his room everyone knows  —  Yuriy works. Do not disturb him. Yuriy’s motto:  "... First  —  learn, second —  learn and third —  learn and then test it. So that the science not remains a dead letter or a fashionable phrase in order to make it flesh and blood, an element of everyday life".
