We are glad to inform you that now Kostyuk Foundation functions as a subdivision/fund of charity called Shevchenko Scientific Society, USA. As a result, the Foundation has got a lot of new and very important advantages vitally necessary for its further development. Here are some of them:
1. Money management is legal, effortless and is free of charge.
2. Shevchenko Scientific Society is exempt from the US Federal Income Tax, which creates a good opportunity for attracting donations from people, organizations and companies.
3. The Society has promised to financially support the Foundation in case if we attract many small-scale private donations.
4. Some companies match private donations to Shevchenko Scientific Society. Thus, your donations could be now multiplied in many ways.
Financial management within the Society allows creating and managing the so-called ‘Iron Fund’ – a certain amount of money greater than $25,000 – on behalf of the Foundation. When we raise this amount,Kostyuk Foundation may function even without further donations, based on the capital income from this Fund.
The next call for Kostyuk Award is now being posted on many web sites including the official National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine.
