Palantir deepens support for Ukraine with sponsorship of champion tennis player, humanitarian and mother
DENVER, June 29, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Palantir Technologies Inc. (NYSE: PLTR) ("Palantir") today announced its support for Ukrainian tennis professional and humanitarian, Elina Svitolina ("Elina"). The partnership with Elina deepens Palantir's commitment to supporting Ukraine and its ongoing efforts to resettle refugees, document war crimes, and facilitate further reconstruction projects.
The sponsorship of Elina, the highest ranked player from Ukraine in the history of the Women's Tennis Association, is the first sponsorship of its kind for Palantir. Born out of Palantir's mission to defend and support Ukraine in the war effort, the sponsorship will also support the Elina Svitolina Foundation ("the Foundation") launched in 2019. Initially, the Foundation served and encouraged youth in Ukraine to through scholarships, programs and special events. Since the beginning of the war, the Foundation has redirected its focus to provide the necessary support to young Ukrainian tennis players and their families by relocating them to European tennis academies and helping them to pursue their tennis dreams safely.
"Palantir has been a friend of Ukraine since the Russian aggression began," Elina Svitolina said. "I am grateful for the work they are doing to help my government continue their fight to exist peacefully within our own borders. Palantir is helping this cause and my decision to partner with them helps advance our humanitarian missions."
As a United24 ambassador, Elina focuses on the Rebuild Ukraine program. She has been involved in numerous restoration projects, including the reconstruction of a residential building, home to more than 100 Ukrainian families. Elina's humanitarian efforts are focused on helping to rebuild her native Ukraine, a goal supported by Palantir technology throughout the country. The partnership with Elina deepens Palantir's relationship with Ukraine, working side by side with our counterparts with a focus on rebuilding war-torn areas.
"Palantir employees are proud to support Elina and her work on behalf of Ukrainian relief," said Lisa Gordon, Palantir's director of global communications and brand. "We are aligned in our support and commitment to the people of Ukraine and are excited about the potential impact of this partnership."
Palantir CEO Alex Karp was the first Western CEO to visit Ukraine in June 2022, after the start of the war. Since then, Palantir's efforts in Ukraine have focused on resettling refugees, providing technology to Ukrainians on the battlefield, and reestablishing schools in war-torn areas.
