“Karpaty Foundation continues to provide further benefits to community…”
The Board & Trustees of The Karpaty Foundation have pleasure in announcing that at its recent meeting to review applications for grants submitted within the scope of the purpose for which the Foundation was established, three (3) applications for grants were considered. To date, the Foundation has now provided some $250,000 in supporting a broad variety of community projects and enabling students to attend various courses at Universities in Ukraine.
The Board/Trustees wish to advise that the core funds currently held by the Foundation are not finite, and the initial $1 Million provided as a result of the merger between Karpaty Ukrainian and Sydney Credit Unions can be increased by direct donations or bequeaths to the Foundation. Your support will allow the Foundation to provide even greater assistance to worthy community projects and to increase the level of scholarships benefiting students in the community to study abroad. Should you wish to discuss this matter further please do not hesitate to contact a Director/Trustee at your convenience.
