    National Committees for UNICEF are an integral part of UNICEF’s global organization. Currently there are 33 National Committees in the world, each established as an independent local non-governmental organization. Serving as the public face and dedicated voice of UNICEF in industrialized countries, National Committees work tirelessly to raise funds from the private sector, promote children’s rights and secure worldwide visibility for children threatened by poverty, disasters, armed conflict, abuse and exploitation.

    National Committees collectively raise around one-third of UNICEF’s annual income. This comes through contributions from corporations, civil society organizations and more than 6 million individual donors worldwide. They also rally many different partners—including the media, national and local government officials, other NGOs, specialists such as doctors and lawyers, corporations, schools, young people and the public—on issues related to children’s rights.

    In 2009, the community of National Committees adopted a set of Principles of Good Governance. The objective of the Principles is to enable robust governance in National Committees as a condition for achieving results, by increasing effectiveness and efficiency, ethics, transparency and accountability, and ensuring a well-considered risk and control environment is in place.

    The Governance Team in UNICEF’s Private Fundraising and Partnerships Division leads UNICEF’s strategic work on implementing the Principles and works with boards and executive management in each National Committee to convert the Principles into action and results.
