About the Campaign

Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF began 66 years ago to help kids who needed 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 helped to raise more than $175 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.

Where the Money Goes

The U.S. Fund meets Charity Navigator's highest ratings for transparency, accountability and administration. Out of every dollar spent, 90 cents goes toward helping children. We spend just 7 cents on fundraising costs, and 3 cents on administration.
