Ukraine Humanitarian Crisis

Ukraine Humanitarian Crisis

Russia invaded Ukraine on February 24, 2022, and philanthropy mobilized a response to assist in the growing humanitarian crisis facing the Ukrainian people. As this crisis affects many organizations and communities throughout New Jersey, CNJG is compiling this page of different resources, articles, and other philanthropic initiatives of which we are aware. If you know of others to add, please let us know.


We remind funders to use the Disaster Philanthropy Playbook to help with their giving strategy.

If you are interested in joining CNJG’s disaster response listserve, to keep you informed of responses to this and other future disasters, please email Craig Weinrich.
