UKRAINIAN NATIONAL FOUNDATION'S OSTROH FUND TOPS $116,000

Thanks to the generous contributions of many individuals in the United States in 2001 and 2002, which totalled nearly $90,000, the Ukrainian National Foundation's Fund for the National University of Ostroh Academy in Ukraine has now surpassed $116,000.

The National University of Ostroh Academy is a semi-private institution of higher learning in Ukraine which has received a number of awards for excellence. Headed by rector Ihor Pasichnyk, the institution is fast becoming the Oxford of Ukraine.

Ostroh Academy was founded in 1576, exactly 200 years before America's Declaration of Independence, by Prince Kostiantyn Ostrozky, one of the richest men in all of Europe and patron of the 16th century Ukrainian renaissance. The "Ostroh Bible," the first Slavonic edition of the canonical Old and New Testaments, was published in Ostroh in 1580. The university was closed for centuries as Ukraine suffered under various foreign occupations. It was re-opened in 1994, soon after Ukraine declared its independence.

The list of donors that follows was prepared by Lesia and Myron Kuropas, who initiated and currently direct the fund. Many donations listed below were earmarked for student scholarships and other special projects developed by the university. All queries should be directed to Myron B. Kuropas, 107 Ilehamwood Drive, DeKalb, IL 60115-1856 or mbkuropas@compuserve.com.

Individuals wishing to make a tax-exempt donation may do so by making a check out to the UN Foundation/Ostroh Fund and mailing it to the above address.

The UN Foundation is a 501 (c) (3) corporation established by the Ukrainian National Association to support charitable projects.
