UNICEF can't save the world's children on its own

UNICEF's humanitarian relief work depends on supporters — a massive network that includes celebrity ambassadors, civil society organizations, corporate partners, volunteers and, of course, donors and philanthropists.

Working together, we have been able to save more children's lives than any other organization in the world.


Faith-Based Organizations: UNICEF USA teams up with organizations based in the U.S. that are interested in supporting UNICEF's work around the world. Latter-day Saint Charities, for example, is a longtime supporter of immunization, early childhood development and education, among other critical UNICEF programs. 

Foundations and Corporate Partners: UNICEF USA's strategic alliances with companies like Google and Target leverage private sector resources and expertise to advance UNICEF's mission for children, while also reflecting partners' corporate and philanthropic objectives. Learn more about the companies we partner with. If you are a business interested in partnering with UNICEF USA, visit our Partnership Proposal Submissions page. Learn more about how to engage your employees to support UNICEF through a workplace giving campaign.

Civil Society PartnersCivil society groups have been helping UNICEF advance progress across many key program areas for decades. For example:

Sports Partnerships: UNICEF USA works with a robust network of U.S.-based leagues, teams, and individual athletes who advocate and fundraise on behalf of UNICEF's mission to save children's lives, protect their rights and help them reach their full potential.
