The Bitpanda Emergency Response Fund

Humanitarian support for people affected by the war

In response to Russia’s full-scale military invasion on Ukraine, we’re setting up the Bitpanda Emergency Response Fund — a crowdfunding platform that allows you to contribute the crypto-assets of your choice to causes that provide humanitarian support to people affected by the war. We will convert all funds into euros without any fees and donate them to selected organisations on a weekly basis.

Bitpanda will kickstart the donations with a EUR 100,000 contribution and will be matching every donation, up to EUR 500,000 in total. On top of that, each of our three founders will make an individual contribution of EUR 50,000.

The Causes

Your donation will help support the following causes. We will keep adding new organisations over time.

Save the Children

Every war is a war against children. They must be protected in times of crisis and conflict. Your donation will support children and their families in Ukraine and neighbouring countries. Together, we can help with e.g. medical supplies, blankets, hygiene kits, safe spaces for children, emergency educational resources and more.

Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) / Doctors Without Borders

Doctors Without Borders is an international, independent medical humanitarian organisation. MSF provides medical assistance to people affected by conflict, epidemics, disasters, or exclusion from healthcare. MSF’s actions are guided by medical ethics and the principles of impartiality, independence and neutrality. MSF teams work in over 70 countries, including in Ukraine and its neighbouring countries.
