United Nations Foundation

The United Nation Foundation, a public charity, was created in 1998 with entrepreneur and philanthropist Ted Turner’s historic $1 billion gift to support UN causes and activities. They are an advocate for the UN and a platform for connecting people, ideas, and resources to help the UN solve global problems. They build partnerships, grow constituencies, mobilize resources and advocate policy changes to support the UN’s work for individual and global progress. The foundation’s work is decreasing child mortality, improving disaster relief, protecting diverse cultures and environments, creating a clean energy future, empowering women and girls, and improving U.S.-UN relations.


Shot@Life, a campaign of the United Nations Foundation, educates, connects, and empowers Americans to help protect children in developing countries from vaccine-preventable diseases. By joining this movement, you can help save a child's life every 20 seconds by learning about, advocating for and donating vaccines to children who need them most.

Girl Up

As the United Nations Foundation’s adolescent girl campaign, Girl Up engages girls to take action. Led by a community of nearly half a million passionate advocates raising awareness and funds, their efforts help the hardest to reach girls living in places where it is hardest to be a girl.

Global Moms Challenge

The mission of Global Moms Challenge is to help families by raising awareness and creating calls to action for their community of over 140,000 people and 30+ partners. This sense of ‘global motherhood’ is why they started the Global Moms Challenge. They teach Global Moms about issues impacting families, host an annual event called Moms +SocialGood, and raise support for families in the Global Moms Relay.
