Independent Monitors Recognize the U.S. Fund for UNICEF

The U.S. Fund for UNICEF meets the Better Business Bureau's Wise Giving Alliance's Standards for Charity Accountability.

This year’s Charity Navigator report found that the U.S. Fund for UNICEF meets the highest financial standards for charities, ensuring that 91.2 cents out of every dollar spent goes to help children. We spend just 6.3 cents on fundraising costs, and 2.5 cents on administration. Those figures mean that we received Charity Navigator’s top scores for our low administration and fundraising expenses (10 out of a possible 10 in each category).
