UNICEF is the world’s leading humanitarian organization for children, working in more than 190 countries and territories. We defend the right to a childhood so children everywhere can grow up safe, healthy and able to reach their incredible potential.
Our work relies entirely on voluntary contributions. With support from Canadians like you, we are reaching the world’s children with health care and vaccines, education, nutrition, safe water and sanitation, and protection. Because of donor generosity, UNICEF is vaccinating 45% of the world’s children under 5 from deadly diseases, saving 2-3 millions of lives each year.
Extraordinary circumstances continue to put children at risk – especially as they suffer the fallout of the COVID-19 pandemic. But there is hope. As part of the United Nations family, we work with key actors on the ground (governments, communities and local partners) to multiply results for children at a scale that would otherwise not be possible.
UNICEF is there for children before, during and long after emergencies strike. No matter the crisis or challenge, we are ready at a moment’s notice and will not give up. Together, we are tackling the greatest challenges facing children today and tomorrow, helping them to survive and have a brighter future. With you by our side, we are creating a better world for generations to come, for every child.
How your gift will be used
Remembering UNICEF in your Will means your compassion and commitment to changing the world will never be forgotten.
A gift in your Will is one of the most special gifts you can give. You do not have to be wealthy to leave a gift to UNICEF in your Will – and we understand that you will want to make provision for your loved ones first. Please be assured that a gift of any size is appreciated and will make a real and lasting impact for children in need.
UNICEF’s long-term work requires a source of dedicated funds. That is why remembering UNICEF Canada in your Will is so important. It means we have a steady supply of donations to count on. It means we can be there for children wherever and whenever they need us.
A legacy gift to UNICEF Canada is a promise to help shape an ever-brighter future for the world’s children, for generations to come.
