KSE Charitable Foundation is de jure two foundations, one registered in the U.S., 501.c.3, and another in Ukraine. 

The KSE Foundation aims to develop Ukraine and Ukrainian society through the support of education and science.

Currently, in addition to educational programming, KSE raises funds for charitable assistance for the population and defenders of Ukraine. However, without proper attention to education, a strategic vision for the post-war reconstruction of Ukraine is impossible.

We work due to your support and strive to be completely transparent in our work. Every month there will be an audit of the Fund’s activities, which will ensure the effective use of the funds.

Working directly with the government of Ukraine, as well as other foundations and volunteer organizations, KSE has established itself as one of the largest humanitarian aid funds, providing life-saving medicines and protective kits for volunteers and ordinary citizens.

KSE Foundation entered the TOP-5 fundraisers who raised the most money for Ukrainians and the army during the war, according to Forbes.

We aim to respond quickly to the needs of Ukraine and Ukrainians in the war.

KSE Foundation has an institutionalized Help Ukraine program, which prioritizes support for our defenders, Ukrainians affected by the war, as well as the restoration of educational and medical infrastructure.

The main goal is for each of these programs to support our government and the state as much as possible and have the greatest possible impact on people’s lives.

icon Assistance for education and development of scientific projects for youth

Establishment of new intellectual centers, start-ups and innovative enterprises is an important investment in the future of our state.

Providing institutional support for students of bachelor’s and master’s programs, investing in fundamentally important educational and scientific projects, as well as ensuring organizational and institutional support for both existing and newly established civic initiatives aimed at preserving the intellectual sovereignty of Ukraine is the basis for the future recovery of the Ukrainian economy.
