Your gift will help continue the work of UNICEF into the future, to ensure that the world’s most vulnerable children are fed, vaccinated, educated and protected.

Why Leave a Gift in My Will to UNICEF?

UNICEF brings over 75 years of field-tested experience with networks that span 190 countries and territories. We are impartial and non-political, but we are never neutral when it comes to protecting children’s rights. What matters to us is reaching every child in need, protecting their rights to survive, thrive and reach their full potential.

We are funded entirely by voluntary contributions and by leveraging our infrastructure, economies of scale and expertise our global reach is truly unique.  In terms of vaccines alone, UNICEF delivers over 2 billion vaccines doses each year, reaching 45% of the world’s children under five.
