About the Foundation

The Wolodymyr George Danyliw Foundation was created in 2002, a charitable organization, shortly after Mr. Danyliw's passing in April 2002, as a memorial tribute to a man who devoted much of his time to the Ukrainian community. George Danyliw was an acknowledged Ukrainian philanthropist, patriot, lawyer and businessman. Throughout his entire life, Mr. Danyliw focused his energies on political, economic, social, cultural and legal issues facing the Ukrainian diaspora. The Foundation's mandate is to encourage research, teaching and study of contemporary issues facing Ukraine and Ukrainians. The foundation strives "to lead Ukraine and Ukrainians globally toward higher levels of excellence in academic achievement, and to promote international awareness of contemporary Ukraine."

The goals of the Wolodymyr George Danyliw Foundation are to:

  1. educate the public about the social, economic, political and cultural history of the Ukraine and of Ukrainians worldwide by organizing and sponsoring conferences, seminars, workshops;
  2. conduct research for the benefit of the public into the social, economic, political and cultural history of the Ukraine and of Ukrainians worldwide;
  3. advance education by providing scholarships and bursaries to elementary, secondary and post-secondary students in the Ukraine and to Ukrainian students worldwide; and
  4. advance education by providing research and teaching fellowships for the purpose of scholarly research into and teaching about the social, economic, political and cultural history of the Ukraine and of Ukrainians worldwide.
