Students, faculty and staff gathered around the flagpole outside of Chambers for a vigil for Ukraine.

Russia’s invasion of Ukraine has sparked outrage and an outpouring of support for Ukraine’s citizens from around the world.

Davidson College and surrounding communities continue to organize events and curate resources in an effort to aid Ukrainians, raise awareness of the crisis and educate those who want to know more about Russia, Ukraine and the historical and cultural context around this unprovoked conflict. 

This page is a non-exhaustive list of the resources and events being organized on campus and nearby. We will continue to update this as new information and opportunities to show support for Ukraine become available.

Donate Funds

Relief organizations highly recommend that individuals work through existing organizations.  

A financial contribution to reputable relief organizations is one of the most effective ways to support organizations who have the infrastructure to mobilize direct efforts. If you prefer to make a donation, be sure to visit Charity Navigator to help assess an organization’s effectiveness in managing donated funds.  The following is a nonexhaustive list of organizations that have mobilized efforts and need support.
