Re: 2015 Annual Giving Campaign (September 1, 2014 August 31, 2015)

The 2015 Annual Giving Campaign, conducted from September 1, 2014 through August 31, 2015, received private cash and non-cash gifts totaling $744,936 from 582 donors. The dollar amount represents the largest private gift amount ever received by the Foundation in its history.

Cash gifts totaled $354,758 and non-cash gifts totaled $390,178. This latter amount was realized through the Foundation's Humanitarian Program efforts during the year, with special thanks going to our coordinator Tetyana Neeley, many volunteers, and the Brother's Brother Foundation. Nearly the entire non-cash amount represents gifts of medical supplies and equipment that have been shipped to medical facilities in Ukraine.

It should be noted, however, that cash contributions did decline from the FY 2014 amount of $504,579, primarily due to the absence of a major Foundation event, like Ukraine in Washingont, during the year.

The 582 donors participating during the past year, while off the total of 620 for the prior year, still represents the third largest number of donors for a Foundation annual giving campaign.

When considering the additional, volunteer gifts of in-kind services, which totaled $211,269 for the past year, the total amount of “contributions” equals $956,205. This amount is 88% of the Foundation's total revenue of $1,088,035 for the year. Other program related revenue, including grant funds from the Open World Program, constittutes the remaining income of $131,830.

Without private gifts and many volunteer service hours, the Foundation would find it impossible to continue its much-needed work in support of the People of Ukraine. I wish to thank all our donors for their generosity of time and/or money.

This information is also being posted on our website and is reflected in our financial statements.

With 2016 being the Foundation's Silver Anniversary year, let's encourage all our friends of Ukraine to support the work of the Foundation! Your continued loyalty and generosity are much needed and appreciated!
