About Trick-or-Treat

Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF began in 1950 as a way to help kids who need more than candy. Since then, children all over America have gone door-to-door on Halloween with UNICEF collection boxes, calling out, "Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF!" They have raised more than $170 million for the U.S. Fund for UNICEF since 1950.


Founded in 1946, UNICEF has always put children first, helping to save more children’s lives than any other humanitarian organization. UNICEF cares about making the world better for kids. That’s why, when you donate to the U.S. Fund for UNICEF, we make sure that 90.2 cents of every dollar spent goes directly to help children.

Submit your Donations

Teachers and group leaders! Once you've gathered your group's collections, there are many ways to submit them. School groups who submit their donations by December 1 can also enter the 2014 School Challenge for a chance to win a $1,000 Global Citizenship Technology Grant for your classroom.
