77% of all public and charitable organizations in Ukraine now participate in the assistance of the Armed Forces. The number of mentions of charitable foundations, charitable organizations, public associations, and volunteer organizations in the Ukrainian media landscape increased almost 10 times from February 2022 to November 2022: from 9,398 mentions in February to 97,940 in November.  

These findings were illustrated by the sociological study “Ukrainian Civil Society under the War – 2022”. 

The main purpose of the research was to study the state of civil society in Ukraine during the war, in particular, the experience of adaptation and work of public associations (PAs) and charitable organizations (COs), as well as volunteer and humanitarian initiatives after a full-scale invasion of Ukraine.

The sociological study “Ukrainian Civil Society under the War – 2022” was conducted by the Kyiv International Institute of Sociology (KIIS) within the project "Ukraine Civil Society Sectoral Support Activity", which is implemented by ISAR Ednannia in consortium with the Ukrainian Center for Independent Political Research (UCIPR) and the Centre for Democracy and Rule of Law (CEDEM) thanks to the sincere support of the American people, provided through the United States Agency for International Development (USAID). The content of this study does not necessarily reflect the views of the Initiative Center to Support Social Action "Ednannia", the United States Agency for International Development, or the United States Government.


The survey was conducted from December 9, 2022, to January 4, 2023. The main method of data collection was a telephone interview, in some cases, at the request of the respondents, as well as for some of the newly created PAs/COs during a long blackout, the respondents were allowed to independently provide answers to the online questionnaire. In total, 1,519 representatives of public associations and charitable organizations were interviewed, of which 1,003 represent PAs/COs created before February 24, 2022, and 516 are newly created PAs/COs. Organizations from all regions of Ukraine and the city of Kyiv took part in the survey, and 0.6% of organizations relocated abroad were included in the sample.
