About Us

A "Do Tank"

The U.S.-Ukraine Foundation (USUF) is a strategic “do tank,” headquartered in Washington, D.C. with a permanent Kyiv offfice, working on the ground in Ukraine since 1991. Beginning from our inception, the Foundation, a non–governmental, 501(c)(3), has created and sustained numerous strategic programs and projects, having secured funding of about $50 million.

Our work is aimed at supporting the development of democracy, a free market economy and human rights in Ukraine, and the strategic partnership between the U.S. and Ukraine.

Programs, which build peace and prosperity through shared democratic values, have focused on the areas of democracy, economic development, health, humanitarian aid and national security policy. Today, the Friends of Ukraine Network (FOUN), the Biotech Initiative and Leadership Development are among the key activities of the Foundation.

Our success is made possible by sponsors and by the cooperation and partnerships we have with a broad base of individuals and organizations in the United States, Ukraine and around the world.
