Ready to change and save lives?

Help fund critical programs

Dedicate a special occasion to fundraise for UNICEF’s work, choose UNICEF USA as your workplace giving recipient, run or bike a marathon on Team UNICEF and take part in the iconic Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF. Send humanitarian supplies directly to children who need it most through UNICEF Inspired Gifts. Shop consciously by purchasing from UNICEF Market and partners that give back to UNICEF USA.

Participate in events

Sponsor or attend a gala, speaker series or other event to learn more about the challenges that children face and raise funds for the solutions.

Advocate for policy change

Contact your legislators to establish policies that protect children, urge your leaders to become a Child Friendly City, volunteer with the UNITE team and raise awareness online with our Social Press Kit.
