Our History

The democratic movements that led to Ukraine’s independence from the Soviet Union in August 1991 stirred our local community of Ukrainian-American immigrants and descendants to form the California Association to Aid Ukraine.  CAAU was subsequently chartered in California as a non-profit corporation, under Internal Revenue Service Code 501(c)(3) in December 1991.

CAAU initially focused on channeling humanitarian relief aid to address critical needs that were basic and immediate.  Over the years, as Ukraine has evolved, CAAU’s efforts have expanded to include projects that leverage modest investments from our local community into lasting positive results for the people of Ukraine.
