Bloomberg’s Giving to the Humanitarian Crisis in Ukraine
Bloomberg stands with the world in condemning the invasion of Ukraine as an abhorrent disregard of international law and human rights.
Bloomberg Philanthropies is building on our nearly 30 years of support for the International Rescue Committee (IRC) with a $30 million commitment, which will help IRC provide further humanitarian support in Ukraine and in other areas around the world where refugees are in need. In addition, we’re contributing $10 million to our partner World Central Kitchen, which has been serving hundreds of thousands of meals per day in and around Ukraine. Our other partner organizations — including the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies, UNICEF, European Federation of Foodbanks, and the International Medical Corps — are providing food, water, fuel, personal hygiene items and first aid to those directly affected.
As of March 10, 2022, Bloomberg employees from around the world have responded by volunteering their time and making over 1,400 contributions that the company has matched, totaling more than $1 million – and counting.
