Workplace Giving Initiatives
Through workplace giving, companies and employees can work together with the U.S. Fund for UNICEF to save and improve the lives of vulnerable children all over the world. The U.S. Fund for UNICEF workplace initiatives team will provide your company with a dedicated account manager to create a custom employee giving campaign to support your company’s business objectives while helping build your philanthropic work in the community.
An annual workplace giving campaign is an easy way for your company's employees to get involved with UNICEF’s work. Each campaign can be tailored to fit your company's needs and philanthropic goals. The U.S. Fund for UNICEF workplace initiatives team will support you every step of the way by helping design an overall marketing plan, including materials, web content, banner ads, a customized, co-branded donation web page and messaging for emails.
Explore the U.S. Fund for UNICEF Workplace Giving Initiatives Toolkit for all the resources your company will need to develop a successful and effective campaign from start to finish.
Through payroll deductions, employees can spread their contributions throughout the year with automatic, tax-deductible contributions taken out of their pay. It also gives the U.S. Fund for UNICEF a steady and predictable stream of income and allows us to dedicate more resources to programs that help children rather than to fundraising costs.
Global Impact and United Way
The U.S. Fund for UNICEF’s Combined Federal Campaign (CFC) number is 12182. We are also a member charity of Global Impact, United Way, and GlobalGiving. If you don’t see the U.S. Fund for UNICEF in your local listing, you can always write us in. The U.S. Fund for UNICEF is recognized as tax-exempt under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code: EIN 13-1760110.
With matching gifts, your company can double (or even triple) the impact of your employees’ support and show that you care about the charitable causes important to your employees. Visit our matching gifts page to see if your company matches gifts to the U.S. Fund for UNICEF.
Your company's workplace giving campaign can feature one or more of the U.S. Fund for UNICEF's high-profile seasonal campaigns to complement your employee giving efforts.
UNICEF Inspired Gifts
Inspired Gifts are actual lifesaving items—vaccines, therapeutic food supplements, tents, mosquito nets, medicines—which your employees can purchase to save the lives of vulnerable children around the world. Whatever the season, UNICEF Inspired Gifts are perfect for ongoing employee engagement. Your company can choose up to five Inspired Gifts, and the U.S. Fund for UNICEF will create a dedicated web store with your company logo, a welcome message, and the selected Inspired Gifts.
Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF
For over 60 years, Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF has been one of the U.S. Fund for UNICEF’s signature fundraising campaigns. It’s a fun and collaborative activity, with lots of ways to create friendly competition. Employees can throw their own Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF Halloween parties or your company can also match all donations raised by employees and their children. Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF materials— like collection boxes, canister wrappers, and posters—are available to decorate the workplace.
The Tap Project
No one can survive without water. Yet nearly 800 million people do not have safe, clean water to drink, and more than 2.5 billion people live without a proper toilet. The lack of these basic necessities isn’t just inconvenient—it’s lethal. Every day, nearly 4,000 children under the age of five die of waterborne diseases. Through the UNICEF Tap Project and your social network, you can help stop these needless deaths.
UNICEF responds to over 250 emergencies each year—from earthquakes to hurricanes to famines. For every crisis—whether it makes headlines or not—UNICEF stands ready to extend a critical lifeline to children and families, providing both immediate and long-term necessities.
Customized, co-branded online donation page
Companies often ask how they can help in the wake of an emergency. Your company can make it simple for employees and customers to learn about and support UNICEF’s relief efforts by setting up a customized, co-branded donation web page that can be advertised on your company’s web site, social media networks, intranet, or email channels. This unique and friendly URL links directly to a donation web page with your company’s logo, welcome message, and donation progress meter. Download our "Online Giving for Disaster Relief" flyer for more detailed information.
UNICEF Emergency Simulation
The UNICEF Emergency Simulation is an interactive employee engagement exercise that demonstrates how UNICEF works in a crisis situation to save children’s lives. This unique exercise is built around a real-life emergency, and team activities are based on UNICEF's approach to disaster response.
