Vision & Mission

The Victor Pinchuk Foundation, an international, private and non-partisan philanthropic foundation based in Ukraine, was established in 2006 by businessman and philanthropist Victor Pinchuk.


We believe that the future has to be addressed now and that each of us has the power to act. We believe that empowered future generations can be a major driver of change. We believe that long-term and large-scale social investments can create a favorable environment enabling people to take their destinies into their own hands


Our goal is to empower future generations to become the change makers of tomorrow. To achieve this goal, we develop a variety of projects, build partnerships in Ukraine and worldwide, and invest in three main areas:

  • in people, to boost human capital,
  • in society, to promote social responsibility,
  • in the world, to foster a more integrated world.

Financial Report
The Victor Pinchuk Foundation was established in 2006, bringing together the various lines of philanthropic activities Victor Pinchuk had been developing over the previous 13 years. The Victor Pinchuk Foundation combines two legal entities: one not-for-profit UK entity, "The UK Office of the Victor Pinchuk Foundation", which serves as the international representative office and facilitates the Foundation's international activities, and one charitable not-for-profit organization registered under the Ukrainian charitable law (Ukrainian Charitable Organisation "Foundation of Victor Pinchuk – Social Initiative", which covers different activities in Ukraine.

All the activities of the above foundations, hereinafter collectively referred to as "The Victor Pinchuk Foundation", are governed by one management team. Reporting to the founder on an annual basis, management prepares a combined statement of cash receipts and disbursements, which presents the cash receipts and disbursements of these two foundations, together with a summary of significant accounting policies and other explanatory information ("the Combined Statement"). The Combined Statement for 2019, audited by Ernst & Young Audit Services LLC, was issued on 22 September 2020. A full set of the Combined Statement together with Independent Auditors' Report can be obtained at request from the Victor Pinchuk Foundation.

The Foundations receive donations primarily from legal entities for the purpose of funding various charitable and social projects and making charitable donations.
