Paying Tribute to Irene Antochiw (1956-2017) for her Legacy Gift!

A legacy gift is a lasting and meaningful way to express your support, your values and your commitment to future generations of Ukrainian Canadians.

Irene Antochiw was a wonderful woman who loved her community and culture. During her lifetime, she supported many organizations including the Ukrainian Canadian Congress National. She was a visionary who made sure that her support continued after her passing and provided $90,000 for UCC’s work in her will. Irene wanted to make sure that the next generation of Ukrainian Canadians can cherish their heritage and embrace their roots as she did. 

“As co-executors of Irene Antochiw’s estate, Chris and I are very happy that the Ukrainian Canadian Congress received Irene’s generous gift. Irene was a generous and kindhearted individual who cherished Ukrainian culture, language and tradition. Justice and identity were issues that were close to her heart. We are sure that Irene’s contribution to the Ukrainian Canadian Congress will help continue your wonderful work in promoting and preserving Ukrainian Canadian issues”. – Mary Semchyshyn
