UNICEF corporate partnerships
Uniting with companies, corporate foundations and other private organizations to uphold child rights.
UNICEF is the world's leading organization for children. Not just because nearly 90 per cent of the world’s population knows us, but because we do whatever it takes to protect the rights of every child, no matter who they are or where they live.
UNICEF brings more than 70 years of field-tested expertise, a network that spans more than 190 countries and territories, a passion for innovation, and a commitment to make every dollar count. Together with the world’s leading companies, corporate foundations and private organizations, we harness our collective strengths to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals and help children survive, thrive and fulfil their potential.
Support from corporate and business partners keeps us going
For more than 50 years, UNICEF has recognized the critical role of the private sector in achieving sustainable change for children. We work closely with multi-national corporations, national companies and small- to medium-sized businesses to identify, design and implement partnerships that leverage the strengths of the corporate sector on behalf of the world’s children, especially the most vulnerable.
A shared-value approach
The nature of our partnerships varies, evolving over time to respond to children’s needs and changes in the business environment. Whether it’s through strategic programmatic funding, by leveraging a company’s core expertise and networks, or by working with industries to promote child-rights principles in responsible business practices, we partner with the private sector to make a transformational difference for children.
