List of donation links related to the invasion of Ukraine

(Note: I am not Ukrainian. I have verified these to the best of my ability. Mix of Ukrainian and international orgs. This list is being continually updated. Inclusion of an org is not an endorsement of all their activities or positions but rather indicates that I believe they are working on the ground right now.)

Additional note on how to help antiwar protesters in Russia:
While Ukrainians are suffering most right now, the repression of antiwar protesters in Russia is scary. The OVD Info organization has been supporting protesters in Russia with legal aid since 2011. Donate to help Ukraine first, but you can also donate to OVD Info’s efforts here: https://www.globalgiving.org/projects/ovd-info/
