General Atlantic Announces Philanthropic Efforts to Support Ukrainians in Need
March 21, 2022
The General Atlantic Foundation, alongside General Atlantic Chairman and CEO Bill Ford, has partnered with Victor and Elena Pinchuk and the Victor Pinchuk Foundation, Eric and Wendy Schmidt and Schmidt Futures, Robert F. Smith and Vista Equity Partners and the Minderoo Foundation (founded by Dr. Andrew and Nicola Forrest) to launch a Ukraine Relief Fund. This collaborative philanthropic effort has been established to support Ukrainians most in need, starting with medical supplies.
The Ukraine Relief Fund, which will be a sponsored project of Rockefeller Philanthropy Advisors, will monitor how the humanitarian needs in Ukraine unfold and may also provide transitional, upfront support to refugees and other displaced persons. With the aim of providing urgently-needed support to Ukrainian citizens currently facing tremendous challenges, the General Atlantic Foundation and employees of General Atlantic have committed more than $200,000 to the Fund.
