Giving Programs at the Ukrainian Center

Pryvit ‘Ukrainian Center’ Community!

In 2022, when Ukraine got reinvaded and its very existence is in mortal danger, the Ukrainian Center became our community Hub for providing humanitarian aid to Ukraine.

We redoubled our efforts to educate our federal and state representatives about Ukraine’s needs and to advocate for action against the invaders and US aid for Ukraine. We formed our community’s crisis response team to organize rallies and protests, and raised funds for much needed medical and refugee humanitarian aid. We began providing refugee services, classes and informational support for newly arrived Ukrainians in the Twin Cities. All this while continuing our usual youth and cultural activities and advancement of Ukrainian heritage, culture and history.

THANK YOU for your continued support. We could not have done it without you! Your support nourishes our efforts and keeps us moving forward.

Please help us make sure that the Ukrainian Center continues to serve our community in 2023 and beyond. Make a generous donation during this time of crisis.

Be a “ Supporting Donor ” at $120 or a “ Sustaining Donor ” at the $240 level.

We look forward to seeing you at one of our community events!

Paul Jablonsky, UACC President, 
and the entire UACC Board of Directors

Our Mission

Ukrainian American Community Center is a 501(c)(3) non profit organization, whose mission is to unite and empower the community through social services, humanitarian aid, and advancement of Ukrainian heritage, culture and history.

With the renewal of the Russian war on Ukraine on February 24th, 2022, our volunteers dedicate their efforts to providing humanitarian aid to the people of Ukraine and raising awareness about Ukraine in Minnesota, the United State, and abroad. Through your generous donations, we fund a variety of projects to help the people of Ukraine and to support newly arriving Ukrainian refugees.

The UACC team and volunteers have been working tirelessly around the clock helping people in need.

We greatly appreciate the tremendous support from all of you!
