A little effort goes a long way!
Fundraising for UNICEF can be a fun, exciting and rewarding way to change children’s lives and support their rights.
It doesn’t matter whether you’re young or old, an individual, couple, family, group of friends, school or organisation – you can help raise funds to support the life-saving work of UNICEF.
Maybe you’ve got an idea for a fundraiser already? Or maybe you’re looking to us for inspiration. Don’t worry we’ve got plenty ideas to get you started.
Create your own fundraising page
A customised page is a great way to share your fundraiser with friends, family and colleagues. The more personal you make it, the more you will inspire your network to support you. Visit Our Fundraise Page to start your own campaign.
Support from UNICEF Aotearoa
Of course we want your fundraiser to be a roaring success. To help you along, we can provide support, fundraising ideas, images, UNICEF logos and certificates etc.. Just let us know what your plan is!
Which children do you want to fundraise for?
UNICEF works in over 190 countries saving and changing children’s lives every day. But it’s really up to you, which children you’d like to fundraise for. Perhaps you’d like to support children close to home in our Asia-Pacific neighbourhood, through the Aroha Partnership. Or you can support other children through any of our active appeals.
