We are a coordinating alliance of civil-social organizations, foundations, governmental institutions, and private businesses. Together, our aim is to create a network of coordinated solutions for displaced people and refugees. Our current network mainly focuses on organizations that operate in or are based in Germany with some exceptions.
The assault on Ukraine is sending shockwaves across Europe and the entire world. Millions of people are affected by the war and its consequences. While millions of people are being impacted and require immediate help, many businesses and organizations want to contribute their time, skills, and resources. We join forces to quickly and efficiently match qualified needs with individuals and organizations who wish to help and meet those needs.
The Alliance4Ukraine is under the shared patronage of the German Federal Minister of the Interior and Communication, Nancy Faeser, and the Minister of State to the Federal Chancellor and Federal Government Commissioner for Migration, Refugees and Integration, Reem Alabali-Radovan.
How to join?
... as an aid organization with needs
Does your organization offer short-term and long-term aid to people who have fled Ukraine? If so, the Alliance4Ukraine can assist you with helping even more by expanding the offerings that you already have in place.
... as a supporting organization with (potential) contributions / offers / proposals
Perhaps your organization does not offer a specific solution but nevertheless it can provide staffing, financial or other support for aid organizations? If so, your organization can become part of the Alliance4Ukraine and, in doing so, it can join forces with many other organizations, foundations, and businesses that are helping Ukrainian refugees in these and other ways: 1) by donating money; 2) by offering volunteer work; 3) by providing expertise and access to networks for aid organizations.
Note to all organizations interested in joining: As we are currently receiving many requests, it might take us several days to get back to you. As much we will try to respond to you in a timely manner, we ask for your patience. Moreover, please understand that our mission to support already existing refugee organizations will not allow us to accept all requests to join our alliance.
The Alliance4Ukraine Fund allocates financial resources donated by foundations, businesses, and individuals to meet the financial needs of acutely-strained refugee organizations in a quick and flexible manner.
Many refugee organizations need to expand vastly their capacities. Thus, they need financial resources as quickly as possible in order to meet increasing demand. The Alliance4Ukraine Fund is designed to provide these organizations—and already established initiatives—with initial financing or bridge and interim financing.
These organizations depend on donations to facilitate aid that is urgently needed now. Every contribution helps! We thank all organizations and individuals who support the Alliance4Ukraine Fund.

How are resources distributed?
We connect financial resources and volunteer time to heavily-strained organizations.
We will—whenever possible—steer resources toward existing organizations whose solutions are needed now and in the coming months. For this, we facilitate customized time resources of all supporting patrons and distribute the Alliance4Ukraine Fund for initial financing.
Granting of funds
The ProjectTogether team evaluates financial requests and makes recommendations to the Alliance4Ukraine Advisory Council. The Advisory Council consists of donors as well as experts. The Alliance4Ukraine Advisory Council meets regularly via videoconference and makes the final decisions concerning the distribution of funds.
What is the Alliance4Ukraine NOT doing?
We want to avoid redundant structures of support. Therefore, we deliberately do not support the launch of new initiatives, but rather focus on existing and established organizations.
We are not organizing escape routes. Numerous organizations and networks already exist that do this.
We neither connect individual volunteers nor do we coordinate their support, but rather focus on supporting the efforts of organizations, foundations, and businesses.
The Alliance4Ukraine aims to strengthen already existing organizations in Germany, especially those that can help refugees with European Union admission procedures, forms, regulations, housing, etc. Together, our aim is to create a network of coordinated solutions for displaced people and refugees along the following focus areas.
