Investing in our children means a brighter future for all. UNICEF has always stood for hope, because we know that — with commitment over time — we can achieve real progress for children. This giving season, stand with us to give every child hope.

Working to make the world better for children

UNICEF does whatever it takes to save and protect the world's most vulnerable children. Forty years ago, UNICEF figured out that promoting simple, low-cost interventions like hand washing and breastfeeding could save millions of lives. Undaunted by war or geography, UNICEF delivers.

The U.S. Fund for UNICEF supports UNICEF's work, and other efforts in support of the world's children, through fundraising, advocacy and education in the United States.
