New Strategic Alliance

In November 2010, the United Nations Foundation (UN Foundation) and the United Nations Association of the USA (UNA-USA) established a new strategic alliance, bringing together the resources of both organizations to increase public education and advocacy on the work of the UN.

The mission of the alliance is to inform, inspire and mobilize Americans to support the principles and vital work of the United Nations and to strengthen the United Nations system; to encourage U.S. leadership to work constructively through the United Nations and encourage everyone to achieve the goals of the UN Charter.  Through its Chapters and Programs, the alliance will educate the American public about the work of the UN, raise funds for these important programs and carry out local activities related to the UN.

In addition to advocating for UNA-USA programs, through this new alliance, UNA-USA chapters can now mobilize additional resources from the campaigns run by UN Foundation, including efforts to end malaria, seek gender equality for women and girls, and energy and climate initiatives for a better energy future
