Every year, dozens of social enterprises are established in Ukraine. They focus on work integration and improve the quality of life for those facing difficult circumstances. They provide critical social services, oftentimes adapting best practices from other countries in new and innovative ways. They create positive social change in the communities they operate in, and also tackle environmental issues, setting up recycling problems and such. Governmental bodies in Ukraine often have neither the purview, inclination, knowhow, nor the resources to solve many local and regional social problems; social enterprises can help address these. Their business is often volatile due to the lack of available capital and expert knowledge necessary to achieve effective sustainability and scalability.

Ukrainian Social Venture Fund was established to gather resources to aid in the development of social entrepreneurship and to cooperatively address challenges to the field.


We help social enterprises to develop sustainable and efficient business models, and to maximize social and environmental impact. We provide financial support and business expertise aimed at employing new technologies and business practices, improving product quality and increasing social value.

We are forming a circle of social investors, both individual and institutional, who seek to catalyze the impact of social entrepreneurs and stimulate systemic, qualitative change in our country.

Since 2021, USVF has been actively cooperating with the European Venture Philanthropy Association, a leading organization in the field based in Brussels. Within the framework of the Collaborate for Impact project, USVF studies the experience and outcomes gained by various European social investing organizations and tries to tailor them to both the unique opportunities and challenges present in today’s Ukraine.
