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.

Child Survival

The health of many millions of children can be ensured using simple, low-cost, high-impact solutions.

Yet millions of children die each year from preventable diseases cause by a lack of hygiene and unsafe water.

A gift in your will could help UNICEF save millions of lives by providing more vaccines, as well as oral rehydration salts, antibiotics, insecticide-treated mosquito nets and clean water pumps.



UNICEF has a long history of providing crucial aid in crisis situations. As much as in the past, we remain dedicated to providing life-saving assistance to children affected by natural disasters and conflicts.

We offer them protection, no matter how difficult or remote the situation.

A legacy donation helps us be there for children and makes sure we always have the resources needed to protect and aid children.


Educating children is crucial to breaking the cycle of poverty. Given an education, a child can grow to become an adult whose own children have a much better chance of growing up healthy and educated.

Between 1990-2012, UNICEF has helped reduce the number of primary school-aged children who are out of school by 44%.

A gift in your will can return more children like this to school and give them hope for the future.

UNICEF Ireland Legacy Ambassador

Anne Doyle, UNICEF’s Ireland’s Legacy Ambassador, is helping to raise awareness about this unique and special way of giving.

Together we can work to ensure children in crisis are given food, warmth and education.
