In case of incomplete legal support for the registration of the fund (for example, only the development of documents), the cost is formed based on a specific task.

Work on the preparation of documents begins after receiving a 100% advance payment from the Client.

The cost of our services for registration of a charitable foundation in Kiev does not include the costs of notarization of documents.

The term for registering a Charity Fund is 1-2 business days from the date of receipt of a notarized power of attorney and signed constituent documents from the Client.

The term for entering the fund into the register of nonprofit organizations is 3 business days from the moment of its registration (assignment of the EDRPOU code). The preparation of a hard copy media and its signing by the management of the fiscal service usually takes about a week.

At the request of the Client, we can get an extract from the register of nonprofit organizations in person in the tax office and hand it over to the Client in a convenient way.

You can have our notary.issue a notarized power of attorney

The current legislation of Ukraine does not require notarizing the signatures of the founders on the charter and the minutes of the general meeting of the charitable foundation.

You can get aт off-the-shelf charity fund from us.

DOCUMENTS DEVELOPED BY US PASS REGISTRATION FROM THE FIRST TRY
Registration of a Charity Fund is one of the core services of our company. As practice shows, some provisions of the charter of a charitable organization in the future may cause questions from the tax inspectorate, cause confusion in the distribution of functions between the governing bodies of the organization, create difficulties in accepting and expelling members of the organization. Therefore, our statutory documents are developed with respect to the past experience, which allows us to predict and prevent undesirable situations in the future.

Our successful projects

An international charitable foundation has been registered in Ukraine
In June 2021, the lawyers of our company accompanied the creation of an international charitable organization with its subsequent inclusion in the register of non-profit organizations.
Registration of the Charity fund
On 05/18/2020, the Charity Fund was registered and received a non-profit status.

You can create a charity in the form of:

  • charitable foundation (may be founded by one person or more, acts on the basis of the charter, the funds of the fund may be formed both at the expense of participants and other benefactors)
  • charitable establishment (can  be created by one or more founders, acts on the basis of a founding act, founders cannot manage a charitable establishment)
  • a benevolent association (created by at least two founders, acts on the basis of the charter).


The vast majority of charitable organizations are created in the form of a foundation.

Answers to frequently asked questions

What should be the authorized capital of a charitable foundation?

The availability of the authorized capital in the charity fund is not provided for by applicable law.

How are the votes of the participants (members) distributed when voting at a general meeting? Is it possible to distribute votes by analogy with LLC?

Each of the participants (members) of the organization has a single vote. Since the charity fund does not have an authorized capital, and, accordingly, its parts, it is impossible to distribute votes on interest.

Do I need to notarize the founding documents of a charitable organization?

According to the current legislation, notarization of statutory documents is not required during the initial registration of the organization, or when making changes.

Does a charity organization leader need to be a member?

No, they don’t. You can choose the head of the organization from non-members.

Registration of a charitable foundation (organization) in Ukraine (Kiev and regions)

Registration of this type of enterprise takes place in the following steps.

As soon as the Client makes the final decision on the registration actions, we agree on the advance payment, the cost of our services, the registration deadlines. As a result, we sign a contract for the provision of legal services.

Next, we get from the Client the information and documents we need for work, after which we put everything in order and prepare the documents for submission to a registrar. All documents are subject to agreement with the Client and registration with local authorities.

As a result, the Client receives all documents for a registered organization (charitable foundation, establishment, association ) to carry out charitable activities.
If you wish, you can additionally get legal advice from a lawyer on administrative expenses to find out which of them may arise in charitable organizations during their activities.

Citizens of Ukraine, citizens of other countries, and legal entities can act as founders of a charitable organization. At least one founder is enough to register a fund.

You can also register a charitable organization (fund) in Ukraine at the address of the founder or head of the fund.

Charter and submission of documents

This service includes the development of the charter of the Charity Organization (based on the model charter), the minutes of the constituent assembly on the creation of the organization, registration cards and other documents.

When drawing up the charter, special attention should be paid to the section "Goals and Tasks of the Fund". This is extremely important, since it is in this section that it will be determined what exactly the Charity Organization will do. An incorrect indication of the directions of its activity will make it impossible to further grant it the status of non-profitability.

You also need to carefully consider the compilation of the section of the charter, which describes the procedure for terminating the activities (liquidation) of the fund. The assets of the Charity Organization  during its liquidation cannot be distributed between its founders, but must be transferred to the organization with corresponding goals and objectives or transferred to state ownership.

As soon as the registration process in the relevant registry is completed, we transfer the necessary documents to obtain a certificate on the inclusion of the fund in the register of non-profit organizations. We prepare the necessary application, which the Client must sign.

The final step is have the Client receive all final documents.
