UNICEF's life-saving work to provide children with health, education, nutrition and disease protection has never been more critical. That's why UNICEF exists, working day in and day out in 190 countries and territories for every child. 

Now more than ever we are counting on people like you.

UNICEF can ship emergency supplies to anywhere in the world in 72 hours. But we can only respond at a moment's notice, because of the ongoing support of our Global Parents.

How much of my donation is spent on UNICEF’s program work for children?
Collapse -
Expand +
UNICEF’s approach is to use low-cost, highly effective solutions that work dramatically to improve children’s lives. For every dollar donated by the Australian public in 2018:
  • 63 cents went directly to program expenditure, including long-term development and emergency response work across both domestic and international programs and community education.
  • 29 cents per dollar from funds raised by the public went to investing in further growing fundraising in Australia to benefit more children across the world. UNICEF Australia reinvests our supporters' generous donations to grow more funds, meaning that more funds are able to be remitted to the field to support our work with children. 
  • 8 cents was spent on UNICEF Australia's accountability, administration and reserves. UNICEF Australia is in the lowest percentile of our peer organisations in terms of money spent on administrative costs.
