Step Four: How we handle the money:
Stand with Ukraine through Film exists to raise funds to assist Ukrainians in and near Ukraine who are suffering as a result of the Russian invasion of their homeland. To simplify the flow of funds from ticket buyers and others, the project team created the Ukraine Relief Fund under the fiscal sponsorship of Human & Civil Rights Organizations of America, Inc. (HCROA). HCROA was established in 1994 and has been an integral part of the US government’s Combined Federal Campaign, the leading workplace fundraising program in the country. HCROA handles millions of dollars annually, donated by individuals and transferred to benefiting charities. It undergoes annual financial audits. HCROA is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization. Donations are deductible to the extent allowed by law. Donations – whether from ticket sales or private gifts – will go to international humanitarian organizations. Among those expected to receive the bulk of the donations will be World Central Kitchen and the International Organization on Migration. A number of smaller tax-exempt groups will also receive support, reflecting the recommendations of Ukrainians.
Checks can be payable to Ukraine Relief Fund, Human & Civil Rights Organizations of America, PO BOX 2052, Salem, MA 01970
