Giving Back in 2017

UNA-USA members helped raise thousands in funds for important causes in 2017. In fact, with your help, we donated…

  • $152,000 to the Adopt-A-Future campaign, which supports education for refugee children in UN Refugee Agency camps. We need your help to raise even more in 2018. Host a fundraising dinner or donate today >>

  • $14,000 to UNA-Puerto Rico's recovery efforts. Following a #GivingTuesday fundraising campaign that included a donation match, we provided much-needed funds to our Puerto Rico Chapter in support of its efforts to recover from Hurricane Maria, reopen schools, and continue vital UN education programs on the island.
