UNICEF Australia relies entirely on voluntary donations, that’s why we want to make supporting us and the world’s children as simple as possible with quick answers to the questions we're asked the most.  

If you can’t find the answer to your question on this page, please contact our Support Team or call us on 1300 884 233.

UNICEF, the 'United Nations Children’s Fund', formerly the United Nations International Children’s Emergency Fund, was established on December 11, 1946, by the United Nations to meet the emergency needs of children in post-war Europe and China.

In 1950, its mandate was broadened to include the long-term needs of children in developing countries everywhere. UNICEF became a permanent part of the United Nations system in 1953, when its name was shortened to the United Nations Children's Fund. It retained its original acronym.

Every day, UNICEF helps children realise their full potential by providing access to clean water, life-saving vaccines, quality education and health care. UNICEF works to ensure every child is safe and protected from harm and is always there during times of emergency.

Alongside its partners, UNICEF works with families, communities and local organisations in more than 190 countries to protect and advocate for children and young people. UNICEF does this by leveraging highly sophisticated infrastructure, economies of scale, and working in collaboration with local in-country partners to deliver for every child, no matter what.

UNICEF is non-political and provides aid to children on a non-discriminatory basis based on need and has no religious, racial or political affiliations. We're also 100 per cent donor. We rely entirely on the voluntary contributions of individuals, businesses, foundations and governments.

In Australia, UNICEF works with government and advocate bodies to defend children’s rights and support international development programs.

Our work at UNICEF Australia

The United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child is the foundation of UNICEF’s work and sets out rights for the survival, development, protection and the participation of children.

It is an international human rights treaty that sets out the basic rights of children and the obligations of governments to fulfil those rights. It has been ratified by all states and territories except the USA. This makes it the most widely and rapidly accepted human rights convention in history. 

This ground-breaking treaty for the world's children was adopted by the UN General Assembly in 1989 and within a year it entered into force as international law. The convention expanded the world's legal boundaries, for the first time establishing children's basic needs as rights.

Australia signed the Convention on the Rights of the Child in 1990.

UNICEF commits its resources to achieving results for children in five priority areas while also continuing to respond rapidly in emergencies and conflicts. These priority areas are:

  • Child Survival and Development – UNICEF works to ensure that children survive and thrive through child survival, nutrition and environmental interventions.
  • Basic Education and Gender Equality – UNICEF works to ensure every child, especially girls, receives and completes a primary school education.
  • HIV/AIDS and Children – UNICEF works to stop the spread of HIV/AIDS and ensure care for the children and young people already affected by the disease.
  • Child Protection – UNICEF works to protect children so they can grow up free from violence, exploitation, abuse and discrimination.
  • Policy Advocacy and Partnerships – UNICEF works to establish partnerships, conduct research and raise awareness that help protect the rights of children.

UNICEF works with governments, non-government organisations, community organisations, local committees and families, as well as children and young people to improve the lives of children and their communities.

The focus of UNICEF's work is children, but many of the improvements made for children ultimately improve the lives of others in their families and communities. For example, maternal health projects that help mothers survive childbirth ensure children grow up with the support of their mothers.

UNICEF is active in more than 190 countries and territories, with the global headquarters located in New York. There are eight regional offices, a research centre in Florence and a supply operation in Copenhagen. There are 33 National Committees for UNICEF, of which UNICEF Australia is one, that raise funds and spread awareness about the organisation’s work.

More information on specific countries can be found at www.unicef.org

UNICEF is a United Nations agency, but, National Committees for UNICEF in industrialised countries, like Australia, are not. Our formal link with UNICEF is through a Co-operation Agreement, which recognises UNICEF Australia as UNICEF’s sole representative in Australia. 

UNICEF Australia is a registered Australian charity and a registered non-government organisation in Australia, and is governed by its own Board of Directors.

UNICEF receives no monetary support from the UN, we rely entirely on voluntary donations.

UNICEF Australia’s functions are programmatic work in Australia, the region and internationally, fundraising and raising awareness of child rights. 

UNICEF is proud of its extraordinary record in saving children’s lives.

UNICEF is different in two ways:

  • UNICEF is one of the largest global organisations specifically focusing on children’s development, children in emergencies and children’s rights.
  • Internationally, UNICEF is what is known as an intergovernmental organisation (IGO). This means that UNICEF works in formal partnerships with governments, and has greater access to and influence with those governments on programs for children.

We communicate with our supporters through a variety of channels, social media, SMS, email, and post. We update you on how your donation is having a real impact on children's lives, sharing your consolidated end-of-financial year receipt, as well as sharing information on our latest appeals, campaigns, or humanitarian crises around the world.

If you'd like to update any of your communication preferences you can contact our Supporter Experience team at support@unicef.org.au, or by calling 1300 884 233

We occasionally send our supporters updates via SMS. The sender will say 'UNICEF'.

UNICEF Australia is a non-government organisation established more than 30 years ago. It is one of 36 National Committees around the world playing a vital role in generating fundraising revenue, public support and awareness for the organisation's work.

Serving as the public face and dedicated voice of UNICEF, National Committees like UNICEF Australia work to raise funds from the private sector, promote children’s rights and secure worldwide visibility for children threatened by poverty, disasters, armed conflict, abuse and exploitation. In addition, UNICEF Australia works with local community partners to address the critical gaps and needs of the most vulnerable children in Australia. Our focus is on children in crisis, addressing disadvantage in the early years, and ensuring adolescent potential and wellbeing. We invest in programs that are targeted and deliver impact, particularly around wellbeing and education for children in remote, regional, and Indigenous communities.  

Our partnership model allows us to build strong alliances with communities, local organisations, and government partners. Combined with UNICEF’s global technical expertise together we can create system wide reform for children.  

UNICEF is funded exclusively by voluntary contributions, and National Committees like UNICEF Australia are collectively responsible for raising about 30 per cent of UNICEF's annual income. This comes through contributions from corporations, civil society organisations and more than six million individual donors worldwide.

UNICEF Australia is a company limited by guarantee and also a registered charity with the Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission (ACNC).

UNICEF Australia is a member of the Australian Council for International Development (ACFID) and has applied the principals of the ACFID Code of Conduct for Non-Government Development Organisations.

At home, UNICEF Australia provides policy advice and conducts direct advocacy to encourage governments to protect, promote and respect the rights of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children as expressed in the Convention on the Rights of the Child and the Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples. 

In addition, UNICEF Australia works with local community partners to accelerate their impact. Together with our partners, we address critical gaps and needs of the most vulnerable children in Australia. We support programs that are targeted and deliver impact, particularly around wellbeing and education for children in remote, regional and Indigenous communities.

UNICEF Australia is 100 per cent donor funded. The main sources of income are individuals, trusts, businesses, government, community organisations and student fundraising through schools.

We receive donations through our monthly giving program: UNICEF Global Parent. This program is designed to provide long-term assistance to children and communities worldwide. The monthly donations of UNICEF Global Parents support long-term programs to provide essential services that improve the lives of all children.

By focusing on helping as many children as possible, UNICEF Australia ensures funds go to where the need is greatest to help the most vulnerable and disadvantaged. With our help, hundreds of children’s lives are improved every day.

The UNICEF Australia office is open from 9am until 5.30pm EDT Monday-Friday. Outside of these hours and during public holidays please email us at support@unicef.org.au.

All money raised by UNICEF Australia must be remitted to UNICEF’s development programs. We have no flexibility to remit funds to other NGOs or individuals.

You may wish to contact UNICEF in your country of interest to enquire about possible assistance from, or referrals to other partners. Contact details for all UNICEF offices around the world can be found at www.unicef.org

It has come to our attention that scam emails and letters alleging to be from or associated with UNICEF are in circulation.

One of the most recent fraudulent emails refer to “The UNICEF Grant Donation Award Promo” whereby recipients each receive a cash grant/donation of £500,000 and are asked to contact UNICEF to claim the money. Another example is a letter from the UNICEF/Spanish Lottery Board notifying the recipient of their winning ticket and asking them to send personal information including bank account details, to UNICEF.

These emails and letters are not genuine and UNICEF is in no way connected with them.

UNICEF Australia would urge you to be wary of any suspicious emails (or other communications) that claim to originate from UNICEF or someone connected with UNICEF, especially when they are not from an official UNICEF email account and are asking for personal information or for international money transfers.

The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) website SCAMwatch (www.scamwatch.gov.au) provides information on how you can recognise, report and protect yourself from scams.

Please verify the authenticity of any such correspondence before sending a response, before divulging personal information and before parting with any money. If you are in any doubt, please contact UNICEF Australia at unicef@unicef.org.au or 1300 884 233 for clarification.

We do contract a small number of agencies to support our work and we ensure these agencies meet necessary employment standards. UNICEF Australia continually monitors and reviews the performance of all its fundraising programs to ensure they provide a good return and ensure the future financial sustainability of the organisation.

Unfortunately, not at this time. However we are making plans to make this functionality available in the near future.

UNICEF’s approach is to use low-cost, highly effective solutions that work dramatically to improve children’s lives.

In 2021 for every dollar donated to UNICEF Australia:

  • 82 cents from every dollar donated to UNICEF Australia went directly to program expenditure, including long term development and emergency response work across both domestic and international programs and community education.
  • 12 cents per dollar 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.
  • 6 cents was spent on UNICEF Australia’s accountability, administration and reserves.

For a detailed costing breakdown, please refer to UNICEF Australia’s most recent annual report.

Donations can be earmarked for a specific emergency project or country through the specific appeals listed on our website. Find out more about our current priority appeals.

Unfortunately, we are not in a position to accept donations of supplies. The role of UNICEF in Australia is primarily one of advocacy and fundraising, and as such, we do not procure supplies for UNICEF's emergency or long-term projects either domestically or overseas. Instead, UNICEF has its own Supply Division which procures humanitarian supplies from around the world.

UNICEF has a monthly giving program, called UNICEF Global Parent, which is designed to provide long-term assistance to children and communities around the world. UNICEF’s Global Parent support many children, rather than focus on the story of just one child.

As a Global Parent, your monthly donations support long-term programs to provide essential services to improve the lives of all children.

By focusing on helping as many children as possible, we ensure that funds go to where they are most needed to help the most vulnerable and disadvantaged. With UNICEF’s help, hundreds of children’s lives are improved every day.

UNICEF does not promote individual child or family sponsorship, but if you're looking to sponsor a child, why not join the huge number of Aussies who have become a Global Parent instead – our alternative and much-loved way of giving regular, life-transforming support.

If you would like some information about the UNICEF Global Parent program posted to you, please contact our Supporter Relations department on 1300 884 233.

You help UNICEF assist hundreds of vulnerable and disadvantaged children every single day. 

We count on your monthly donation to be able to plan ahead and continue to provide support to children in need all around the world. When you pledge to donate monthly, you enable us to:

  • More effectively plan our upcoming work, knowing that we have the funds ready to invest in long-term solutions and make a lasting impact for children,
  • Have extra supplies ready in areas where emergencies are likely to occur because of climate conditions or political instability, and
  • Respond to children’s needs wherever it is most urgently required at the time.

You might also find that a smaller monthly donation can be less of a burden on your budget than a larger one-off gift. 

Yes, donations of $2 and over are tax-deductible.

You can make your monthly donation by credit card or direct debit. Please note that credit card is UNICEF’s preferred method for payment. Unfortunately we are unable to take monthly donations via PayPal or BPay.

UNICEF’s approach is to use low-cost, highly effective solutions that work dramatically to improve children’s lives.

Everything we do at UNICEF is done with the world’s children in mind first. For every dollar donated by the Australian public in 2021:

  • 82 cents went directly to program expenditure, including long-term development and emergency response work across both domestic and international programs and community education.
  • 12 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. 
  • 6 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.

Inspired Gifts are a collection of gifts essential for child survival and development.

Inspired Gifts provide crucial aid to children living in areas affected by poverty, conflict or natural disaster. When you order an Inspired Gift for family or friends, real life-changing items like vaccines and food are shipped from UNICEF’s warehouse in Copenhagen to children and families in need around the world. A description of each gift is included with every order and you can choose to send a printed card, a printable PDF card, or send a personalised e-card with your order.

If you choose to order a printed card, you should allow 10 working days for delivery. While we process all orders as efficiently as possible, please note that we are unable to control the timing of postage delivery through Australia Post. For any questions about the delivery of your order please call 1300 884 223 between the hours of 9am-5pm Mon-Fri. 

If you choose the e-card or print-at-home PDF, it will be delivered immediately.

Yes they are. UNICEF Inspired Gifts are tangible, life-saving and life-changing gifts that are being distributed to children and communities around the world year-round in response to real need. 

As a result, an item from the same category, in extreme circumstances, may be substituted by UNICEF in response to need i.e. if there is a disease outbreak the value from one vaccine category may need to be substituted for another vaccine i.e. Polio vs Measles.

Yes, and you are able to nominate a different delivery address for each card, if you wish.

Inspired Gifts respond to the real and changing needs of children around the world, so the item you select will be substituted for another item when there is a greater need for it. This means we cannot guarantee that the gift you select is the one that will be delivered to the field. We hope that through your purchase you are trusting us to deliver the supplies that will have the most impact for children in urgent need.

The best way is to register your interest via the Job Opportunities section on our Join our Team page. When volunteering opportunities come up they are predominantly in our Sydney Metro office.

As our role in Australia is primarily one of advocacy and fundraising, UNICEF Australia does not directly recruit volunteers or employees to work with UNICEF overseas. However, to assist you on your journey to volunteering overseas with UNICEF, please click here.  

Yes, they can. At this stage, the minimum age for volunteering for UNICEF Australia is 17 years old, but this will also depend on the opportunity we have available. The best way to register your interest is through our job opportunities.

We advertise staff vacancies here as they arise and we are only able to accept applications in response to advertised vacancies. We also advertise vacancies on job boards such as seek.com.au and ethicaljobs.com.au. We do not accept speculative applications.

If you are interested in a career with UNICEF overseas, you can obtain detailed information about the various avenues open to you, and the application process, from UNICEF’s international website. Please note UNICEF Australia does not recruit either paid or volunteer staff for UNICEF overseas.

UNICEF Australia is unable to accept work experience placements due to our small staff and limited resources.

UNICEF Australia has opportunities that arise for internships from time to time. These opportunities are driven by department needs and, most importantly, our capacity to spend the right amount of time with you. All opportunities as they arise are advertised in our Job Opportunities on our Join our Team page.  

Yes we can! If you would like a poster to display in your classroom please send us an email to unicef@unicef.org.au with your address details or call (02) 8917 3212.

Additional education resources are also are available here.

There are three ways your school can be part of UNICEF Australia’s work.

  • Learn about child rights.
  • Share your views on child rights in Australia and your own community. Find out more here 
  • Fundraise to support UNICEF’s work. You might already have a fundraising idea in mind - If so, perfect! If not, why not check out our fundraising ideas for inspiration. As a school you actually don’t need our permission to fundraise so you can just go ahead with your event. If you require any further assistance then please contact education@unicef.org.au

You can fundraise for UNICEF by holding your own fundraising event or by choosing one of UNICEF’s charity adventures. You can find out more about fundraising here.

Yes, if you are an individual, community group, family, or small or large organisation

In order to comply with government regulations and grant your authority to fundraise we need some more information on the event that you are planning.  Please complete the proposal to fundraise form and return it to us.  We will then send through confirmation of your approval to fundraise at your event.

No, if you are a school and plan to hold an event in the school grounds.Schools have different fundraising regulations to other individuals or community groups, which makes things a lot easier for us all. So please go ahead with your event. If you require any further assistance then please contact support@unicef.org.au

As you can appreciate, UNICEF is a widely known global organisation and much like a brand in itself. Our corporate partners raise up to $100,000 to use the UNICEF logo on their official communications and flyers etc., so we unfortunately cannot offer fundraisers the same privilege of using the UNICEF logo freely as they wish. Having said that, if you complete the proposal to fundraise form and UNICEF grant you authority to fundraise then you can use the ‘Team UNICEF’ logo in your fundraiser communications or any kind of advertising you plan on doing.

Unfortunately, legal and compliance regulations prevent us from producing collection boxes therefore we are unable to send out tins to use/display at fundraising events.

If you have been approached by a person claiming to be raising funds for UNICEF and you believe they might not be a genuine fundraiser, please contact UNICEF Australia on 1300 884 233 or email unicef@unicef.org.au with information on who approached you, how and when. Sadly fraudulent fundraising is affecting many charities.

Below is a list of ways to identify a legitimate UNICEF fundraiser in Australia.  All our fundraisers are knowledgeable about UNICEF and have either a signed contract with UNICEF Australia or have a letter of authority from UNICEF Australia or badge identifying them as a volunteer UNICEF fundraiser.

Who might ask you for your bank or credit card details?

Our face-to-face fundraisers will have UNICEF-branded ID badges containing the name and number of the fundraiser; information on the company that employs them and UNICEF contact details. They will be wearing a UNICEF T-shirt and/or hoody. They collect credit card or direct debit information. THEY WILL NEVER ASK FOR CASH.

Who might call you?

At times UNICEF may contact people by telephone to ask for support. If the caller is from a contracted professional telemarketing agency, you will be told that you are being contacted on UNICEF’s behalf at the start of the call. If you wish to support us but would prefer to not give your details out over the phone, all of our callers will be happy to send you a letter and a donation form in the post.

The caller will be knowledgeable about UNICEF and will be able to provide contact details to enable you to confirm that the call is genuine.

If you would like to confirm a fundraiser’s identity please contact UNICEF Australia on 1300 884 233 or at unicef@unicef.org.au

An up-to-date Will is the only way to make sure that, after you pass away, your wishes are carried out. If you die without making a Will, you’re said to die intestacy, and your assets will be distributed according to a pre-determined formula and maybe not for your family, friends and the issues you care about as intended.

Writing a Will is one of the most significant decisions you’ll ever make. It’s important to take your time, but it’s a simple process once you’ve made your decision. We recommend you consult your solicitor, who can provide an estimate of cost and help you write your Will.

You don’t have to be wealthy to make a Will. Whoever you are, whatever your situation, even with a small gift, you can make an enormous and lasting difference in the lives of children.

Gifts provide UNICEF with vital funds for long-term planning and development. Leaving a gift to a specific type of work or location might mean that we cannot fulfil your wishes if we are no longer doing that work or in a particular area. Keeping your gift for general purposes enables UNICEF to use it where the need is greatest at the time.

Your Will records your wishes at a particular point in time. It’s advisable to regularly review your Will as your circumstances change to accurately reflect your current wishes. If your existing Will still reflects most of your wishes, and you simply wish to make some additions or minor changes, your solicitor can help you create a Codicil. It’s important to consult your solicitor to ensure the original Will is not affected.

This is entirely up to you. However, letting us know about your gift can help us plan our future work. Most importantly, we’re very keen to show our gratitude to you and keep you informed about our work with children around the world.
