Partnering to make an impact
Charitable trusts and foundations play a hugely important role in helping UNICEF reach and improve the lives of vulnerable children around the world to create lasting and sustainable change.
If you’re a trustee, have contact with a trust or foundation, or perhaps are setting one up, then we would love to hear from you.
How can I make an impact in such a large organisation?
We’re often asked this question – and it’s true, UNICEF is a big place! In fact, it’s because of our size that we’re able to achieve economies of scale and maximise your impact.
For example, UNICEF is the largest buyer of childhood vaccines in the world. This means that we’re able to purchase in bulk and negotiate very low prices so that your dollar goes further.
The way we work is also different from other organisations. UNICEF supports governments to fulfil the rights of every child. As a result, our programs are sustainable and locally owned, and the investment you make today will continue to pay dividends in the years to come.
Because UNICEF Australia is an accredited partner with the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade, every donation you make to our programs is combined with funding from the Australian Government to reach more people.
We have decades of experience in helping children caught up in crisis, from armed conflict and mass migration to natural disasters. In an emergency, we have the capacity to send 90 cents of every dollar directly to programs in the field. The remaining funds cover important administrative costs, such as research projects to ensure that we reach communities with the most effective solutions, and audit and risk processes so we can be certain your gift is used wisely.
Tailored to you
We recognise that trusts and foundations may have specific interests or objectives, so our dedicated team is happy to discuss a bespoke proposal with you. We’ll help you meet your aims and work with you to ensure that your gift achieves the greatest possible impact. Trusts and foundations of all sizes can support UNICEF – so that together, we can help children survive and thrive.
Funding our programs
We are seeking funding for a variety of programs in the region, around the world, and as part of our wider response to COVID-19. Learn more here through some examples of programs you can support.
