About Romanian United Fund

What We Do

We find, fund, promote and partner with the most effective non-profit organizations active in Romania and in the Romanian diaspora.

WE FIND the most promising, transparent and efficient nonprofit organizations in Romania and in the Romanian diaspora. We select projects with a significant track-record, and we verify them, making sure their standards of governance are the highest in the industry.

WE FUND selected projects by fundraising in the largest Romanian diaspora urban centers around the world. 100% of donations made through RUF go directly to your selected project.

WE PROMOTE selected projects around the world, raising awareness about their existence, introducing them to the Romanian diaspora, to other nonprofit organizations that we have access to through our network and to significant entities in their specific business domain.

WE PARTNER with selected organizations by identifying key experts in their field to facilitate knowledge transfer as well as well-intended volunteers from the Romanian diaspora and our own network.

Our Team comes from a variety of backgrounds, including entrepreneurs, non-profit leaders, professors, lawyers, marketing and management experts, united by our shared commitment to give back and support positive change.

Our Board of Directors, our Members, and our Founding Angels underwrite RUF’s operating costs, which means that 100% of every donation goes directly to the selected projects.


Our mission is to mobilize a global network of friends of Romania to create the largest community-powered initiative in support of the most worthy Romanian projects and initiatives


A Strong and Connected Romanian Diaspora, self-sustaining and contributing to the development and progress of a democratic Romania.
