The influential Ukrainian

For many years Victor Pinchuk has developed philanthropic projects in Ukraine and internationally. In 2006, he consolidated these activities under the Victor Pinchuk Foundation, which became the largest private Ukrainian philanthropic foundation. Its mission is “Empowering future generations to become the change makers of tomorrow.” It focuses on education, healthcare, providing access to the inspiration of contemporary art, and fostering Ukraine’s international integration.
