Our founders have been cultivating the idea of creating a strong institution for local strategic influence for a long time.

The basis of the Foundation is the equity, formed by the investments from the holding of international companies, founded by the Ukrainians.

In 2021, ЗMIN Foundation officially became a part of the charity sector.

2022 was the year when we all bitterly experienced the extremes of a full-scale war.
Keeping our balance between the directions of powerful systemic support of the Defense Forces, and implementing our permanent long-term programs.

The sum of investments of the equity since 2021 comprises more than 143 000 000 UAH.

The key thread of ЗMIN activity in 2023-2024 is growing and strengthening the community of partners under the leading motto "WITHOUT SOMEONE, WE AREN'T".

Over 60 partner organizations, united by the Foundation, jointly form the ecosystem of strategic influence, combining different topics, fields and sectors.

We boost up those players and directions that are connected to the ongoing context, simultaneously providing a possibility to acquire both knowledge and tools for strategic thinking forward - through the formats of grants, scholarships and co-creation of the projects.

The key direction for 2023-2024 is realisation of the project "RIPPPLES": a powerful, loud, and effective investment campaign for the support of the Defence Forces of Ukraine.
