Welcome to Wise — a global tech company which moves money around the world.
Our team is made up of over 90 nationalities, with offices all over the world — including Cherkasy — so we felt it important to put together resources for donating, and sending money to Ukraine. This war is a tragedy and we stand with Ukraine and its people, including all our Wisers and their families and friends.
Where to donate money
If you donate via Wise, we’ll waive the fees of your transfer. This means 100% of your money will go to charity. See more about how to donate.

How to donate from your Wise account
Once you've chosen an organisation, follow our send money guide and enter the organisation’s details as normal.
How to send money to Ukraine
As long as we're able to, we’ll continue providing our service to people sending money to Ukraine.
To make sure we can continue supporting people, there's a sending limit of 100,000 GBP (or equivalent) per transfer. We'll remove this cap as soon as possible.
If you already have a Wise account
