Ukrainian Studies Foundation - British Columbia

Does your organization have a Ukrainian language program for children or adults?

Do you know of an interesting, informative speaker on timely Ukrainian issues?

Are you writing a book on Ukrainian topics?

Is your organization contemplating a project with an academic Ukrainian element?

If the answer is yes, then you may be eligible for financial assistance from the Ukrainian Studies Foundation of BC.

The Ukrainian Studies Foundation of BC has, for 20 years, promoted and supported Ukrainian studies at all educational levels, and co-operated with other institutions or societies in programs consistent with these aims.

To accomplish its aims, USF-BC provides seed money to organizations that partner with it and entertains interesting and worthwhile proposals for financial support.

Members of the board of directors represent diverse professional expertise and community involvement. USF-BC has supported Ukrainian language and history courses at BC universities, Ukrainian school programs for children and adults, lecturers and speakers at community events, the publication of books of Canadian authors on Ukrainian subjects, the publication of promotional materials for historical events, a library cataloguing project, sale and promotion of books at public events.

USF-BC derives its funding from bequests and donations, is registered as a Society in BC and a charitable organization with Canada Revenue Agency, and issues tax receipts for donations and bequests.

To inquire about partnering, financial assistance, or donations, get in touch with Lydia Huzyk by email or leave a message at 604-437-1464.
