CSR Report 2022: Symphony Solutions Donated Profits and Raised Almost 1 MLN EUR for Ukraine
In 2022, Symphony Solutions faced a brutal reality alongside the rest of the world, when on February 24, 2022, an unprovoked attack unfolded and trampled the borders of sovereign Ukraine. Understanding the severity and urgency of the situation, Symphony Solutions directed all our corporate social responsibility (CSR) activities to where it was most needed, defining our focus areas of support.
In the early weeks of war, Stand by Ukraine foundation was created to raise funds and provide humanitarian and emergency aid to Ukraine. Theo Schnitfink, Founder and CEO of Symphony Solutions, made a decision in good faith to donate all the profits generated in Ukraine back to the needs of Ukrainians. Alongside continuous fundraising and charity auctions inside the company, we managed to donate almost 1 million euros in support of Ukraine’s fight for peace.
War came into our lives when many Symphonians and their families found themselves in dire danger and had to flee their homes. We provided help to refugees from the most affected areas, having transformed Symphony Solutions offices into shelters. We supported Symphonians who joined the fight on the frontlines, providing necessary equipment and supplies. We celebrated our soldiers, and mourned the loss of our hero, who will never be forgotten. We paved the way in a fight on the information front with Dattalion ‘data battalion’ initiative.
One of the very first IT companies in Ukraine, Symphony Solutions joined in supporting the UNBROKEN National Rehabilitation Center in Lviv, Ukraine. We raised and donated funds for the purchase of essential medical and rehabilitations equipment, as well as funded two Easther Bionics hand prostheses for wounded Ukrainian soldiers.
That is our fight – some fight on the battlefield, others work so that they have the means to help those suffering in this war. Right now, I have to make sure that the company is functioning at the current level since the entire profit that we generate is donated back to support Ukrainians. We will keep going for as long as it’s possible.

Symphony Solutions continues supporting the country and its people in their fight for peace. We are laying out the first bricks in the new foundations with RebuildUA project and look forward to the future when Ukraine regains its full independence and territorial integrity, flourishing as it rebuilds.
