Re: 2007 Annual Giving Campaign (September 1, 2006 – August 31, 2007)  

 

The 2007 Annual Giving Campaign, conducted from September 1, 2006 through August 31, 2007, received private gifts totaling $153,277 from 569 donors

Highlights of the 2007 campaign are: 

- Unrestricted Gifts totaled $132,014, approximately $20,000 greater than last year.  This amount has been directed to the Foundation’s general operations and programs, as follows:

General Operations                       $    87,256
Economic Development                $         230
Education                                         $    15,011
Health Care/Humanitarian Aid     $      3,810
Public Policy                                     $    25,707

- Gifts supporting General Operations totaled $87,256, approximately $15,000 greater than last year.  In the history of the Foundation’s annual campaigns, only the 2005 Annual Giving Campaign’s totals were larger for this category.

- Participating donors numbered 569, exceeding last year’s donor total, and represented the second largest number of annual donors ever.

Without these funds, the Foundation would find it impossible to continue its important work.  I wish to thank all our donors, with special appreciation to the:  Heritage Foundation of First Security Federal Savings Bank of Chicago, IL, International Renaissance Foundation, Internews, Self Reliance (NY) Federal Credits Union of New York City, Selfreliance Ukrainian American Federal Credit Union of Chicago, IL,  SigmaBleyzer,  and individuals Adrian & Larissa Dolinsky, Peter Jarosewycz and the Dmytro & Jaroslava Jarosewycz Memorial Charitable Gift Fund, Anna Marks and the Marks Family Charitable Trust,  Marta Pereyma, Murray Senkus, Stefan & Wolodymyra Slywotzky,  and Halyna Traversa. 

Public trust for the Foundation is growing, evidenced by restricted, long-term gifts. 

The Zapytiv Community Development Fund, created by the late Mychailo Boyko and his family, received donations exceeding $21,000 during the year.

I am confident that all our donors and friends will validate the efforts of the U.S.-Ukraine Foundation through their continued generosity.  It is for this reason that I look forward to even greater success for the 2008 Annual Giving Campaign!
