UNHCR donor care

When we think about making a Will, it’s only natural to consider loved ones first and foremost. Many people also find a place in their Will to reflect on other important aspects of their lives – the issues that concern them the most and the causes they believe in.

By remembering UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency, in your Will, you are helping to ensure that people affected by conflict and natural disaster receive vital support in their time of need. Beyond your lifetime, you will be providing protection, food, water, shelter and healthcare to some of the world’s most vulnerable people. Thank you for considering leaving a gift to UNHCR in your Will.

    Why do we ask for funding from the public?

    UNHCR is one of the few UN agencies that depend almost entirely on voluntary contributions to fund their operations. This reliance on voluntary funds, combined with a large and unexpected refugee crisis, has in recent years resulted in serious funding shortages. (UNHCR typically receives only half the money it needs each year).
    The result? Underfunding has a severe effect on the organization’s ability to respond to the needs of the people it is mandated to serve.
