Support Us

To protect and support children, UNICEF relies on voluntary contributions. One-third of our budget comes from the private sector. Small sums given by individuals on a monthly basis make a huge difference in children's lives.

Our Pledge for Children program provides a safe and trustworthy way to protect and support children in China. You decide how much you want to give each month, and you choose the debit card or bank account you want to use. You can stop payments at any time. UNICEF follows international best practices for responsible auditing and monitoring of our funding.

A new option in China, the Pledge for Children program is an important way to ensure stability and continuity of support to children. By contributing each month, you have the satisfaction of being an important part of improving children's lives.
