Fundraising campaign for Ukrainian publishers

Börsenverein launched a donation project for Ukrainian publishers, bookstores and authors together with the Ukrainian Association of Publishers and Booksellers (UPBA). The donations will support Ukrainian colleagues in acute need and promote the reconstruction of the book industry in Ukraine.

The Börsenverein will give the money raised to the UPBA, which is collaborating with the Ukrainian Toloka Foundation on the project. Then, the funds will be redistributed in a targeted manner. Oleksandr Afonin, President of the UPBA, and Mykola Chayun, Board Member of the UPBA, are the initiative’s sponsors. Membership in the UPBA is not required to receive support. The aid funds should be accessible to all publishers, bookstores and authors in Ukraine.

There are two ways to donate:

  • by bank transfer to the Book Culture and Reading Promotion Foundation of the German Book Trade Association | Keyword: Ukraine | IBAN: DE13 5085 1952 0000 1249 17 | BIC: HELADEF1ERB
  • via PayPal to ukraine-toloka or via the PayPal website
