Organizer Russian Children's Welfare Society

Organizer of 56th Petroushka Ball

Founded in 1926, the Russian Children’s Welfare Society (RCWS) is a 501(c)3 tax exempt organization dedicated to improving the lives of children at risk in Russia.  

The RCWS on-going projects include a successful college scholarship program for orphans and disadvantaged children, currently supporting over 190 students; medical programs such as pediatric maxillofacial surgeries in partnership with the Rusfond changing the lives of over 200 children annually; assistance to orphanages, hospitals, rehabilitation centers for children with special needs, schools; and other programs. In response to the epidemic, RCWS established the COVID-19 Russia Relief Fund to help save doctors treating the infected patients and equip hospitals with critically needed protective gear.  100% of donations go directly to support the RCWS charitable programs as our administrative expenses are completely covered through internal sources.

The annual Petroushka Ball is RCWS main fundraising event. All donations are tax deductible to the extent permitted by law.
