UNICEF’s approach is to use low-cost, highly effective solutions that work dramatically to improve children’s lives.

In 2015 for every dollar donated to UNICEF New Zealand:

  • 65.8 cents went directly to program expenditure, including long-term development and emergency response work across both domestic and international programs and community education.
  • 25.2 cents per dollar from funds raised by the public went to investing in fundraising and communications activity in New Zealand to benefit more children across the world.
  • 9 cents was spent on UNICEF New Zealand’s accountability and administration.
