UNICEF relies entirely on voluntary donations to continue and scale its lifechanging and lifesaving services for children. Support from foundations and other partners helps UNICEF ensure that every child has a safe childhood and brighter future. 

UNICEF USA works with foundations headquartered in the United States to fundraise for programs, advocate for change and educate the public — all to protect children's rights and futures. 


Why support UNICEF?

There are many reasons. Here are a few: 

  • UNICEF has helped save more children’s lives than any other humanitarian organization through innovative partnerships and programs

  • Boots on the ground: UNICEF operates in over 190 countries and territories with 13,000 dedicated staffers working alongside local and national governments and convening other key partners to improve children's lives and protect their rights 

  • UNICEF responds to hundreds of emergencies every year, drawing from over 75 years of experience — delivering lifesaving aid and supporting long-term recovery through capacity building and empowering communities and countries to build back better

  • UNICEF has the largest humanitarian supply warehouse in the world that can ship to anywhere within 72 hours, and its buying power has lowered the cost of immunization and other necessities for better child health
