BYSOL supports families of political prisoners, strike committees, courtyard communities, dismissed workers and expelled students, local initiatives that help Belarusians fight against lawlessness in the country.
You can help Belarusians who continue to fight for freedom and the BYSOL Foundation:
Spreading the word about what's happening in Belarus and Ukraine is vital. Tell your friends about the foundation's initiatives and share information about the fund's fundraising on social media. It doesn't matter how active you are online, or how many virtual friends you have — even one person who sees a post can help those in urgent need.
If you are a journalist or want to prepare a story, you can always ask our staff for comments by writing to our feedback form.

We try to help everyone who comes to us for help. And sometimes we are just short of hands. Since the beginning of the war in Ukraine, the Foundation's work and activities have grown: for example, we provide private counseling on the road, and it takes a lot of time and energy. You can help by sharing your main resource — your time.
If you would like to join our work and volunteer, please fill out the form.
We are convinced that charity is not just about three-zero sums. Any help is a huge contribution to our common cause.
Donating to the Foundation makes it possible to help people affected by the actions of the regime: political prisoners and their families, those who were forced to leave their homes. Support activists, civic initiatives, support Belarusian volunteers in Ukraine and many others.
All funds raised by BYSOL are donated to help those affected. BYSOL does not charge a fee or withhold funds for operating expenses.
The fee is withheld by the payment processor (up to 3% of the collection amount). We build this percentage into the stated amount if one opens a private fundraisers.
Staff salaries are generated from institutional funds raised and tips that you can leave when you send a donation. This is a voluntary option. You can also support the work of the BYSOL team by making a donation online.
