Face to Face Fundraising Program is Launched

Thanks to the kind financial support of people like you, UN Women National Committee (NC) Australia is proud to have contributed more than $3 million in the past ten years to support UN Women’s transformative policy work and programs. Together, we are creating brighter futures for women and girls in PNG, across the Pacific, and around the world. In 2015, UN Women HQ invited UN Women NC Australia’s Board of Directors, in collaboration with the staff team, to revisit our strategy to grow resources for UN Women. To think big. To be bold.

Following a strategic review of options and opportunities, UN Women NC Australia decided to launch face to face fundraising programs in late 2016. Face to face fundraising — where individuals are invited to contribute to UN Women through an individual engagement, one to one, in public spaces like city squares or shopping centres — raised more than $100 million for Australian charities in 2014. Face to face fundraising programs have been delivered by our National Committee colleagues for years. Through their face to face fundraising programs in Iceland and Finland, our fellow National Committee colleagues have achieved important gains in advocacy for and awareness of UN Women, and, importantly, have exponentially grown UN Women’s pool of support.

Thank you for continued, most generous support, no matter how you choose to contribute to a world free of violence, and filled with equal opportunity for everyone.
