With UNICEF USA, you can help raise funds to support UNICEF's lifesaving programs in many ways. 

UNICEF works in more than 190 countries and territories, helping to save and meaningfully improve the lives of the world's most vulnerable children. In the U.S., one way UNICEF USA helps UNICEF drive impact is through fundraising. Governments, humanitarian organizations and private sector partnerships help UNICEF develop and deliver its programs to uphold the rights of every child. But individuals play an essential role too — from making generous donations during emergencies to attending UNICEF USA fundraising events to starting their own fundraisers. Explore how you can help raise money to support every child's right to a healthy, happy and safe childhood.

UNICEF USA is committed to living out diversity, racial equity and belonging (DREB) in our organization, our work and our communities. This includes third party fundraising events to benefit UNICEF USA. To ensure all third-party events align with UNICEF USA’s values, DREB commitments and contribute to its mission to relentlessly pursue a better world for every child, we are improving existing processes by which we approve event fundraisers in support of UNICEF USA. This includes updating applications to require more thorough background information of all event participants, including UNICEF USA DREB commitments to our terms and conditions for all submissions and mandatory approval of promotional materials in order to be granted the approval to use the “In Support Of UNICEF USA” logo. UNICEF USA reserves the right to terminate any third-party event should it break any of the standard terms and agreements.
