How does a charitable foundation ensure the protection of personal data of its benefactors?

Our Foundation was founded and operates in accordance with the Constitution of Ukraine, the Law of Ukraine "On Charitable Activities and Charitable Organizations".

Principles of the Fund’s activities:

  • The Foundation carries out its charitable activities on the principles of legality, humanity, common interests and equality of rights of participants, openness, transparency, voluntariness and self-government.
