Among the most generous donors to UCU during the past fiscal year were Andriy and Chrystia Kozak. After successful engineering careers, early retirement allowed them to enjoy the active lifestyle offered by Vermont. Andriy and Chrystia are both avid skiers, and also enjoy hiking, cycling, and windsurfing. Andriy is also a glider pilot. They are both lifelong members of the Ukrainian Scouting Organization Plast, where Andriy serves as the Chairman of Plast’s National Board, and Chrystia is the Director of Physical Fitness. During Andriy’s tenure, Plast has strengthened its financial base in the United States, and expanded one of the organization’s historic campsites. Along with normal scouting activities, Andriy and Chrystia are involved in Plast’s “Scouts for Ukraine” campaign, which has raised nearly one million dollars in donations and has delivered over ten million dollars in medical equipment and humanitarian aid to refugees and wounded soldiers. Given their active lifestyle, Andriy and Chrystia funded UCU’s state-of-the-art Fitness Center, which has now been named in their honor. Immediately following the unprovoked invasion of Ukraine, the fitness center was converted into a refugee shelter. The Kozak’s are deeply touched that this new building aided UCU’s relief efforts and underscores their unwavering commitment to UCU and Ukraine.
