Rising political tensions between Russia and Ukraine over territory culminated in a constructive declaration of war by Russian President, Vladimir Putin, on February 24, 2022. This extreme escalation has created a humanitarian crisis as Ukrainian military and civilians, alike, come together to protect their country from the onslaught of bombing and other acts of aggression being carried out by Russian forces. 

The charities listed below are Top-Rated by CharityWatch for spending at least 75% of their cash budgets on programs; for maintaining fundraising efficiency of $25 or less to raise each $100 in cash donations; and for meeting CharityWatch's governance and transparency benchmarks.
