About the Foundation
Kharkiv Karazin University Foundation was created as a charitable entity to support the University and its employees in times of war and after-war hardships.
Kharkiv University has already made and continues making a tremendous contribution into national and international science, as well as into the development of culture sports, and education. Even in wartime, the University keeps on functioning and providing professional training of future specialists together with their social and patriotic upbringing. But obviously, the war sets its limitations and poses its risks that substantially complicate the University’s work.
This project was initiated for the sake of supporting Karazin University and fostering its after-war reconstruction. We believe that together we will be able to implement this intention, to save and multiply academic culture of Kharkiv region and all Ukraine.
To facilitate the protection of scientific, educational and spiritual achievements of Karazin University, to preserve Ukraine’s intellectual potential and to make its victory over the Russian aggressor closer.
