Help us take care of those who protect us

On February 24, 2022, Russian troops launched a full-scale invasion of Ukraine. Since then, our cities have been constantly bombed with missiles and shelled. Countless lives were and are being lost.
MacPaw Foundation is a nonprofit organization established by MacPaw, a software development company based in Kyiv. Since 2016, the Foundation has implemented dozens of social projects in 8 priority directions: Green Project, Tech and Science, Diversity, Education, People in Need, Animals, City, Ukraine.
Due to our commitment to the declared total resistance, we shifted our focus. MacPaw Foundation intends to help save lives of Ukrainian protectors and provide relief to as many civilians as possible.

Donate to help us speed up peace in Ukraine and protect universal values.
