GatherDC has watched the last several days of developments in Ukraine with incredibly heavy hearts. There is so much to grieve, and it is hard to watch the ongoing violence, pain, and uncertainty happening on the ground in Ukraine from so far away feeling like there is only so much we can do.

We have compiled this list of fundraisers, organizations, events, and resources for our those in our community who are looking for ways to get involved, whether it is financially, physically, or emotionally.
