2009: Closer and Closer to Zero

Somewhere, right now, a child is suffering — stricken by a cause people in the U.S. rarely, if ever, have
to worry about. Acute malnutrition. Malaria. Diarrhea from drinking bad water. Untreated pneumonia.
And the awful truth is, that child may die.

Because every day, 24,000 children die — even though the medicines, vaccines, and technologies that
could save them already exist.

Since its inception, UNICEF’s main goals have been to reach as many children as possible with effective,
low-cost solutions to counter the biggest threats to their survival, and to provide them with the protection
and education all children deserve. UNICEF’s work is having an extraordinary impact.

This year, we were able to announce that the number of children under the age of five who die each
day has dropped significantly: from 25,500 three years ago to 24,000 today. In fact, over the last 50
years, UNICEF and its partners have helped cut
the worldwide child mortality rate by more than

A Message from the Chair and
the President

It’s been a challenging but extremely rewarding year at the U.S. Fund for UNICEF. You’ve shown
phenomenal support, despite a troublesome economy that continues to affect us all. Your steadfast
commitment has helped UNICEF remain the world’s safety net for vulnerable children.

Last year, UNICEF contained a raging cholera outbreak in Zimbabwe; drilled wells so children in Sudan
could drink clean, safe water; rescued and rehabilitated children abducted by armed combatants in the
Democratic Republic of the Congo; immunized against deadly tetanus in Indonesia; built schools in
Afghanistan so girls have a chance to learn; provided a lifeline to families struggling amid the debris of
hurricane-ravaged Haiti. And these represent just a fraction of UNICEF’s interventions on behalf of the
world’s children.

The recent outstanding news of a continuing significant drop in worldwide child mortality confirms
— in a very concrete way — that UNICEF’s leadership, efficiency, and comprehensive child survival
strategies are getting us closer to a day when no child dies from preventable causes.

In Fiscal Year 2009, your support helped the U.S. Fund generate more than $486 million in total revenue.
We cannot thank you enough.

But we must not let the ongoing financial turmoil erode any of the hard-won child survival gains we have
made together. We ask you to join with us as we marshal all our willpower, all our resources, to make
sure that — in the fight for survival — not a single child is forgotten.

Getting Results, Saving Lives

UNICEF makes the most of your support, saving and improving children’s lives through innovative,
affordable, and proven strategies. For example, UNICEF reaches more than half of the world’s children
with inexpensive immunizations against lethal diseases like measles and tetanus. In 2008, UNICEF
bought 2.6 billion doses of vaccines to protect children throughout the world. It also remains one of the
largest purchasers of anti-malaria bed nets — last year alone, UNICEF distributed 19 million of these
lifesaving nets in 48 countries. In response to the global food crisis, UNICEF increased its acquisition
of ready-to-use therapeutic foods by 450 percent over the last two years. These “miracle” foods, such
as the high-protein paste Plumpy’nut®, have the power to quickly bring a child back from the verge of
starvation and are saving many lives in the intensifying fight against malnutrition. Critical materials like
these are distributed through UNICEF’s worldwide supply network, including its vast, state-of-the-art
warehouse in Copenhagen and hubs in Dubai, Panama, and Shanghai.

None of this would be possible, of course, without UNICEF’s more than 10,000 highly skilled staff
members who work in over 150 countries and territories to aid children threatened by disease,
malnutrition, natural disaster, war, and exploitation. Ninety percent of UNICEF personnel work in the
field — everywhere from remote areas of countries like the Lao People’s Democratic Republic to
bustling urban centers like Nairobi. They provide crucial emergency relief in the wake of crises and also
develop and maintain long-term programs that safeguard children’s health and well-being. In conflict-
ridden countries like Afghanistan, Iraq, and Somalia, these devoted workers often risk their own lives
to save the lives of children.

UNICEF’s work is funded exclusively by voluntary contributions from a diverse range of supporters,
including individuals, non-governmental organizations, corporations, foundations, and governments —
all of whom are invaluable partners in the fight for children’s survival.

UNICEF was founded in 1946 to help children in post-war Europe, China, and the Middle East. Today, as the United Nations Children’s Fund, it serves children
and families in developing countries worldwide and depends entirely on voluntary contributions. The U.S. Fund was established in 1947, the first of 36 national
committees set up globally to support UNICEF through fundraising, education, and advocacy. Since its inception, the U.S. Fund has provided UNICEF and various
NGOs with more than $3.7 billion in cash and gifts-in-kind.

Helping Children Survive and Thrive

Capitalizing on more than 60 years of experience, as well as its singular efficiency and expertise, UNICEF
will take on any challenge to give every child the basics for a safe and healthy childhood.

UNICEF focuses on a core set of programs that are designed to deliver the maximum impact for children
in need. Working with governments, non-governmental organizations, community leaders, and other
partners, UNICEF provides comprehensive health services that include immunizations against deadly
diseases, therapeutic foods to combat malnutrition, prenatal and postnatal care, and prevention and
treatment of disease. UNICEF also finds sustainable ways to make sure children have safe drinking
water and adequate sanitation, aids families caught in emergencies and conflicts, protects children from
violence and exploitation, and gives millions of girls and boys the opportunity for a better life through

Advances Against HIV/AIDS
On the day her little girl died, Jacqueline — a young Cameroonian mother of two — endured
a searing anguish no parent should ever experience. When her daughter first became sick
and feverish, she rushed her to a local doctor and then to herbalists. But they were unable
to help, and the distraught mother watched hopelessly as her child slowly weakened
and died.

Then Jacqueline started to feel sick herself. She soon found out that she was HIV-positive
and began getting treatment. “As soon as I felt better, it was my son I was worried about,”
she said.

Five-year-old Giaum was also ill. His mother took him to the UNICEF-supported Chantal Biya
Foundation, a hospital for children in Cameroon’s capital city, Yaoundé. There, Jacqueline
learned the boy was also infected with HIV. He received free medicine and health care at
the facility and started getting better.

When Jacqueline became pregnant again, she went back to the Chantal Biya Foundation
to participate in a program for the prevention of HIV transmission from mother to child.
Treating a woman with doses of an antiretroviral drug during pregnancy can decrease the
chance of the virus being passed on to her unborn child.

For Jacqueline, the result was miraculous: her daughter Alexis was born HIV-free.

UNICEF supports a range of critical HIV/AIDS initiatives in developing countries throughout

the world, including Prevention-of-Mother-to-Child Transmission programs, pediatric AIDS
treatment, prevention of new infections among adolescents, and many services that
support and protect children orphaned by the disease.

0910_383_r1 Sec2:8 10/29/09 2:05:16 AM

Through these and other efforts, UNICEF and its partners have made significant strides against this
merciless illness across the globe. Last year, more than 4 million people in low- and middle-income
countries were receiving antiretroviral therapy, a ten-fold increase over a five-year period. The
proportion of HIV-positive pregnant women in those
countries receiving antiretroviral drugs has grown
from 10 percent in 2004 to about 45 percent in 2008.
The number of children under age 15 benefiting from
these life-prolonging drugs was more than 275,000 in
2008, a 39 percent increase over 2007.

While this progress should be celebrated, monumental

gaps remain. The unacceptable reality is that most
children and HIV-positive pregnant women who need
treatment still don’t have access to it.

Jacqueline’s story is proof of the stunning success

of these programs — and it is also a source of solace
for other mothers living with the virus. Using her
experience to help others, Jacqueline now belongs to
a UNICEF-supported advocacy group for HIV-positive
mothers. As a counselor, she, in turn, provides them
with advice and emotional support.

Shielding Children from Malaria
The stunning beauty of the cloud-capped peaks and azure waters of the northern Maluku
Islands belies a lethal threat.

Communities in this isolated part of Indonesia have lost young and old alike to the menace
of malaria. The disease, which kills approximately 1 million people worldwide every year,
is spread through parasites that are transmitted from person to person by certain types
of mosquitoes. Watery environments are perfect breeding grounds for the mosquitoes,
which prey almost exclusively at night.

For Esther Rahmat, who lives in a small village accessible only by boat, the disease
resulted in heartrending tragedy. When one of her twin twenty-one-month-old daughters
came down with a fever, she took the infant to the health clinic. “They said it was malaria,”
Esther recalled. “They gave her something, but it was too late.”

The child died the next morning.

Two of her neighbors’ babies also succumbed to malaria around the same time. Esther
then contracted the disease herself and was treated at the hospital. When malaria doesn’t
kill, it can lead to debilitating anemia, vomiting, convulsions, and diarrhea. In children, the
disease can also impede mental and physical development.

UNICEF and its partners are helping the government of Indonesia combat malaria through
a prevention program that includes the mass distribution of insecticide-treated mosquito
nets. Use of these nets, which cost less than $7 each, can reduce overall under-five
mortality rates by about 20 percent in areas where malaria is prevalent. UNICEF is one of
the world’s largest buyers of the nets, acquiring 19 million in 2008 alone. The number of
nets purchased by UNICEF today is nearly 20 times greater than in 2000.


0910_383_r1 Sec2:10 10/29/09 2:05:24 AM

UNICEF supports health clinics in Indonesia where mothers and young children receive the bed
nets along with their basic immunizations. Pregnant women are also tested for malaria; if the result
is positive, they are immediately given treatment.

To protect her other children, Esther now sleeps with them under a new bed net. “I don’t worry
when we go to sleep now,” she said. “I don’t worry about getting bitten by mosquitoes. We can
all sleep peacefully.”

A Child in Ethiopia Saved
from Starvation

When five-year-old Khesna Ibro arrived in her father’s arms at Bissidimo Hospital in
Ethiopia’s Oromia Region, she was weak and glassy-eyed from acute malnutrition.
Her father, Ibro Bekeri Yusef, had carried the young girl for a full day to get from his
small farm to the UNICEF-supported feeding unit at the hospital. Immediately, nutrition
workers there assessed Khesna’s condition and began a feeding program to help her
body recover from the shock of malnutrition.

Soon, Mr. Ibro and Khesna were sitting in the hospital’s courtyard, where he gently gave
her small sips of therapeutic milk from a bright orange cup. The milk is rich in vitamins
and micronutrients and is the first food given to severely malnourished children (in small
doses, eight times a day) because it helps condition their bodies to digest food again. At
first, Khesna’s system was unable to cope with even a little milk, and she threw it back
up. Slowly but surely, though, her body would begin to adjust.

The global economic crisis has hit Ethiopia incredibly hard — in 2008, food prices
nearly doubled. And severe drought has exacerbated an already bad situation. Drought
is particularly deadly in this country, where 80 percent of the population lives off the
land. Livestock have died, fertilizer is scarce, and fuel prices have skyrocketed. In short,
people in Ethiopia — especially children — are in trouble.

UNICEF estimates that over 100,000 of the country’s children are severely malnourished.
Khesna’s father, Yusef, was deeply worried about his six children back at home. “My
other children are also suffering,” he said. “I used to live well with the income I earned.
But now the price of grain has gone up. We can’t afford to buy sorghum…. We have
no water.”

A child who is malnourished is not just hungry; malnutrition cripples children’s growth, it slows
their intellectual development and makes them significantly more vulnerable to deadly diseases.
Malnutrition is a big part of the reason that, every day, more than 24,000 children die from
preventable causes.

In Ethiopia (and many other countries), UNICEF is the main provider of ready-to-use therapeutic
foods like Plumpy’nut® — a high-protein peanut paste that is a particularly effective tool for fighting
malnutrition on a mass scale, because it requires no mixing or refrigeration and comes in easy-
to-use packets. Plumpy’nut has already saved so many children from starvation, it’s often called a
miracle food.

UNICEF and its partners are working closely with the Government of Ethiopia to respond to the
emergency there. But the problem is huge: UNICEF estimates it will require as much as 1,100 tons
of ready-to-use therapeutic foods per month to stave off Ethiopia’s nutrition crisis.

And with economic turmoil continuing, the UN Food and

Agriculture Organization is now estimating that worldwide
hunger will reach an all-time high in 2009, with over 1 billion
people — one-sixth of all humanity — undernourished.
UNICEF’s high-impact, low-cost solutions are making a
profound difference in the face of this threat. But as the food
shortage continues, UNICEF will need additional donor support
to save the lives of scores of other children like Khesna.

Healthy Births for Women
Fleeing Conflict
Azra looked exhausted. Her face betrayed the emotional trauma of all she, her husband,
and her two young children had recently endured. And she was thin. Much too thin for a
woman who was nine months pregnant.

Three weeks earlier, Azra and her family had fled their home in Mingora, the main city in
Pakistan’s Swat Valley. Bloody fighting between Taliban militants and government forces
in that area had driven over 2 million people — more than half of them children — far from
their homes. Azra and her family eventually made it to Sheikh Yasin Camp for Internally
Displaced Persons in Mardan. There, Azra visited a UNICEF-supported Comprehensive
Healthcare Unit for an urgently needed prenatal checkup.

Dr. Neelum Jehangir, a medical officer at the Healthcare Unit, estimated that there were
around 400 pregnant women in Sheikh Yasin Camp alone. “Most of these women are
traumatized and arrive at the camp in a very bad state. They are often in need of urgent
medical attention,” she said.

At the Healthcare Unit, expectant mothers are given comprehensive prenatal care and
regular checkups. They also receive essential vaccinations to protect them and their babies
against deadly diseases such as maternal and neonatal tetanus, which kills 128,000 infants
and up to 30,000 women worldwide each year. To make sure the women receive the care
they need during childbirth, UNICEF helps to transport them to the hospital, provides them
with medical attention, and even makes sure they have nutritious food to eat. “We ensure
that they deliver their babies safely,” says Dr. Jehangir.

The Healthcare Unit at Sheikh Yasin Camp is one of four such health centers set up with
UNICEF support to help displaced people living in camps in northwest Pakistan. Over 1,100
women are being cared for in the facilities. UNICEF works tirelessly to give women like


0910_383_r1 Sec2:14 10/29/09 2:05:44 AM

Azra what they need to have healthy babies — even in the midst of a major humanitarian crisis like
the one in Pakistan. Each year, nearly 4 million newborns die within the first month of life, and good
care during and right after delivery means both baby and mother have a solid chance of survival.

In the camp’s health center, Azra reflected on everything she had left behind when fleeing her
home. “I have nothing for my unborn child,” she said with sadness. “I had made so many clothes
for my baby, but I couldn’t bring them with me.” With UNICEF’s support, though, Azra will be
providing her infant with the greatest gift of all — a safe, healthy entrance into the world.

A Year of Uncommon Dedication

In the face of challenging times, U.S. Fund for UNICEF supporters, partners, Board members, and staff banded
together for children this year. Because of our shared purpose and determination, we not only weathered the
economic crisis — we made remarkable strides in spite of it.

The U.S. Fund for UNICEF raised more than $486 million in total revenue, and our standing as an organization
proved stronger than ever. Charity Navigator awarded the U.S. Fund its fifth consecutive 4-star rating — a ranking
accorded to only 4 percent of charities evaluated by this esteemed entity. We also continued to meet all 20 of
the Better Business Bureau’s Wise Giving Alliance Standards for Charity Accountability and received an “A”
rating from the American Institute of Philanthropy. In addition, our mission resonated on Capitol Hill, where the
U.S. Government made its largest-ever contribution to UNICEF. We welcomed new partners and supporters and
launched successful campaigns. The real significance of these collective efforts and achievements, of course, is
this: more children are alive, more children are healthy, and more children have the chance to grow up.

What follows is a look at some of the education and public information programs, advocacy campaigns, and
fundraising initiatives that have made this year’s extraordinary progress possible.

U.S. Programs | Education Information Advocacy • •

• The U.S. Fund’s Office of Public Policy and Advocacy in Washington, D.C. organizes a grassroots campaign every
year to help secure the U.S. Government’s annual contribution to UNICEF. Thanks in part to these efforts, Congress
approved a $130 million allocation to UNICEF for Fiscal Year 2009 — its highest funding recommendation ever.
In addition, the U.S. Fund worked with NGO partners such as the U.S. Coalition for Child Survival to increase
U.S. Government resources for international child and maternal health programs. Advocacy collaboration with


0910_383_r1 Sec2:18 10/29/09 2:05:57 AM

Rotary International and Kiwanis International helped ensure funding for polio eradication and iodine deficiency elimination campaigns. And over 28,000
supporters signed our online petition encouraging President Obama to propose a Presidential Initiative to Accelerate Child Survival.

• Created 59 years ago, Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF is the U.S. Fund’s flagship educational fundraising campaign. Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF is often the first experience
children have of taking action locally to serve their community globally. With appeal across generations, the program has inspired many participants to become
lifelong supporters of UNICEF programs. This year, Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF lived up to its promise to “Make Halloween Count®” by raising over $4.4 million to
help the world’s most vulnerable children. The proceeds support UNICEF’s global programs, marking another year when thousands of children, parents, teachers,
community groups, and corporations across America showed their commitment to do whatever it takes to save a child.

• More than 3,100 volunteers joined the Tap Project, which asks diners at participating restaurants to pay $1 or more for the tap water they would usually enjoy for
free. Campaign volunteers contributed an estimated 84,475 hours to recruit restaurants, promote the campaign in their local communities, and dine at participating
restaurants. Volunteers also coordinated Tap Project programs in their workplaces and helped organize Water Walks in Chicago and New York City. During the Water
Walks, kids and adults carried up to a gallon of water for a mile to demonstrate their support for the millions of children worldwide who must carry water from
distant sources each day.

• In Fiscal Year 2009, the U.S. Fund’s Education Department expanded the breadth and depth of its free classroom resources. The department developed 11 thematic
units consisting of 30 lesson plans and created a web page for easy viewing of numerous UNICEF videos. All lesson plans and supporting media are located at A new monthly eNewsletter, launched as a means of keeping in touch with educators, is now sent to over 5,000 subscribers.

• Key Club International once again provided outstanding support for programs aiding orphans and vulnerable children in Swaziland, raising more than $700,000
in the 2008 Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF campaign. In addition, Key Club passed a resolution to direct their Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF 2009 fundraising efforts to child
protection programs in Uruguay. Four members visited the country in June to observe UNICEF-supported programs that are helping at-risk adolescents by providing
education, family counseling, job skills, recreation, and social services.

• More than 20,000 volunteers continue to conduct activities through the U.S. Fund’s Online Volunteer Center.
Volunteers hosted 650 Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF Halloween parties, supported the Tap Project through fundraising and
restaurant recruitment, raised awareness for the UNICEF Snowflake Lighting in New York, wrote their congressional
representatives regarding legislation and petitions supporting issues important to UNICEF, conducted local fundraisers,
and more. To volunteer, visit

• A new Campus Initiative National Council was formed. Five students from around the country were selected and
charged with supporting and expanding the more than 65 UNICEF campus clubs. As a result of their efforts and
those of U.S. Fund staff, many new clubs are under way, campus leaders feel a stronger connection to UNICEF, and
a national campus summit took place in June in New York City, with more than 70 attendees.

Sources of Support
The U.S. Fund’s total public support and revenue this year topped $486 million. What follows is a close look at this
year’s remarkable fundraising activities.

• Despite the economic downturn, individual donors demonstrated extraordinary commitment to UNICEF’s mission
over the past year. Over 330 individuals supported the U.S. Fund for UNICEF with a gift of $10,000 or more, and four
exceptionally generous donors made gifts of $1 million or more. The latter group — led by national Board Directors
Amy L. Robbins of the Nduna Foundation and Bob Manoukian, along with Pat Lanza and the Lanza Family
Foundation, and an anonymous donor — committed over $10 million to support UNICEF programs worldwide. In
addition, individual supporters also provided a future for children through planned gifts totaling $7.5 million in legacies
and bequests.

• UNICEF’s Change for Good® program on American Airlines had a record-breaking year. American Airlines employee
volunteers, known as “Champions for Children,” collected nearly $1 million in foreign and domestic currency from
customers onboard select flights and at Admiral’s Clubs.

• With a $1 million pledge over the next five years to support child survival, BD continued to strengthen its role as a
leader in the movement to eliminate maternal and neonatal tetanus.

• Gucci continued its annual Campaign to Benefit UNICEF, in which Gucci stores worldwide donate a percentage of
sales from a special group of products designed by Gucci Creative Director Frida Giannini. In 2008, Gucci launched


0910_383_r1 Sec2:20 10/29/09 2:06:01 AM

the white TATTOO HEART COLLECTION, together with a landmark advertising campaign featuring award-winning music artist Rihanna, to highlight the fourth year
of the company’s ongoing commitment to UNICEF. Gucci is currently the largest corporate supporter of the “Schools for Africa” program. All told, Gucci donated
$1.3 million to the U.S. Fund (a total of nearly $2.5 million to UNICEF internationally) in Fiscal Year 2009.

• Johnson & Johnson’s commitment to healthy mothers and children produced a generous grant benefiting newborn and maternal health programs in Pakistan,
India, and Nepal. Their support has also touched the survivors of natural disasters through a contribution for relief efforts following China’s devastating earthquake
and Myanmar’s Cyclone Nargis.

• Users of Windows Live™ Messenger and Windows Live™ Hotmail® made UNICEF their number one cause for the second year in a row through the i’m Initiative
from Microsoft®, raising over $350,000 for the U.S. Fund for UNICEF. In addition, the generosity of Microsoft and its employees resulted in matching gift revenue
of more than $220,000.

• Pampers continued its global “One Pack = One Vaccine” campaign to help protect women and their newborns from maternal and neonatal tetanus. The largest
cause-marketing initiative ever conducted in North America to support UNICEF, the program provided funding for over 30 million vaccines through the 2009 U.S.-
Canada campaign, with donations of more than $2.5 million. The global campaign has generated funding for over 200 million vaccines to date, helping UNICEF move
closer to reaching its goal of eliminating this preventable disease.

• A number of long-time U.S. Fund corporate partners offered generous product support again this year. Pfizer contributed enough of its antibiotic Zithromax® to treat
more than 10 million people for the debilitating and blinding disease, trachoma. And Merck continued to facilitate UNICEF’s treatment of over 9 million people for
river blindness through product donations of its medicine, Mectizan®.

• For the fifth consecutive year, Delta Air Lines SkyWish, the charitable arm of the SkyMiles® frequent flyer program, selected the U.S. Fund for UNICEF as a

• UNICEF’s Next Generation was founded in Fiscal Year 2009 by the Next Generation Steering Committee, which consists of 30 young professionals from diverse
fields — all with dedication and passion for UNICEF. Chaired by Jenna Bush Hager, UNICEF’s Next Generation mobilized young supporters and launched a new
commitment to raise $175,000 to support innovative nutrition programs in Guatemala.

• The U.S. Fund’s online presence expanded beyond, the Fieldnotes blog, and UNICEF eNews to include sites for Inspired Gifts (; the
UNICEF Snowflake (; a YouTube channel (; profiles on Facebook ( and MySpace (myspace.
com/unicefusa); and even a Twitter feed ( The U.S. Fund for UNICEF acquired a mobile short code (864233, which spells UNICEF on a
telephone keypad) that enables cell phone users to instantly donate $5 to the U.S. Fund by texting a keyword such as GIVE, TOT, or HELP to UNICEF. All told, the
U.S. Fund’s web and mobile channels for giving generated more than $7.8 million in donations.

Sources of Support, continued
• The UNICEF Snowflakes ushered in a festive holiday season. Rihanna and Ne-Yo participated in the New York lighting
ceremony, and Joel Madden and Nicole Richie joined the celebration in Beverly Hills. The U.S. Fund for UNICEF
hosted the Snowflake Ball in New York, which raised more than $2 million in support of UNICEF’s work in the field.
During the gala, U.S. Fund National Board member Gary Cohen was honored with the Helenka Pantaleoni Award, and
UNICEF Ambassador Lucy Liu received the Danny Kaye Humanitarian Award. The gala’s “Inspired Auction” broke a
record, generating over $300,000.

• Partnerships with non-governmental organizations produced significant results this year. UNITAID, an international
drug-purchasing facility, helped UNICEF secure 20 million insecticide-treated mosquito nets to combat malaria. U.S.
Fund for UNICEF partner Malaria No More provided $3 million this year to support the distribution of a portion
of these nets in Angola, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, and Nigeria, in addition to a $2 million donation in
Fiscal Year 2008 to fund the delivery of nets in Tanzania. The U.S. Fund matched the Malaria No More grants with
a $5 million contribution, which will speed the delivery of lifesaving nets to children and their families in seven
African countries. UNICEF strives to prevent children from becoming the next generation to fall prey to HIV/AIDS.
Through Prevention of Mother to Child Transmission (PMTCT) programs, HIV-positive mothers receive antiretrovirals
to prevent passage of HIV to their children and halt the progression of HIV/AIDS. They also learn healthy behavior
through life-skills education. Zonta International, whose mission is to advance the status of women and adolescent
girls, joined UNICEF in supporting PMTCT activities in Rwanda with a generous grant of $600,000.

• In 2008, thousands of children, teachers, parents, communities, groups, and corporations took action for child survival,
participating in the U.S. Fund for UNICEF’s signature campaign, Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF (TOT), and raising over $4.4
million in support of UNICEF’s global programs. Teen sensation Selena Gomez joined the campaign as the 2008
Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF National Spokesperson, promoting TOT through media interviews, encouraging her fans to
participate, and hosting the launch event. Procter & Gamble once again served as National Sponsor, contributing
$250,000 and featuring TOT and UNICEF in its P&G brandSAVER™ insert distributed to over 57 million households
worldwide. Coinstar, Inc., Hallmark Gold Crown®, and Pier 1 Imports® continued as Proud Supporters. Key Club
International partnered with the U.S. Fund to raise more than $700,000 for its Swazi Children Care Project, while
MLS W.O.R.K.S. — Major League Soccer’s community outreach initiative — launched its partnership with Trick-or-
Treat for UNICEF. TOT 2008 introduced innovative programming beyond door-to-door outreach, including “Text-or-
Treat,” receiving donations by mobile text, and registering over 600 Halloween fundraising parties.

• The innovative Tap Project, which asks diners at participating restaurants to pay $1 or more for the tap water they
usually enjoy for free, continued its nationwide expansion. More than 1,500 restaurants throughout the United States
took part in the Tap Project, which raised nearly $820,000 in the U.S. to support UNICEF’s lifesaving water and
sanitation programs.


0910_383_r1 Sec2:22 10/29/09 2:06:03 AM

• Foundation partnerships generated substantial support for the U.S. Fund this year. The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation provided $12.8 million for critical research
on child survival that is being conducted by a coalition led by UNICEF and the World Health Organization; $1 million for meningitis vaccines for children in Chad,
Niger, Nigeria, and Sudan; and more than $1 million for water and sanitation, child protection, and education programs for children affected by devastating floods in
India’s Bihar province. The Conrad N. Hilton Foundation contributed $3 million for a vital initiative involving UNICEF and other partners that is helping residents of
Ghana, Mali, and Niger gain greater access to safe water and sanitation. Not On Our Watch donated $438,000 to support UNICEF’s efforts to protect and provide
care for Zimbabwean children seeking refuge in South Africa. The Irene S. Scully Family Foundation’s most recent grant of $300,000 provided lifesaving treatment
to children suffering from severe malnutrition. The Elton John AIDS Foundation, the Ibrahim El-Hefni Technical Training Foundation, and the Kind World
Foundation also continued their generous commitment to UNICEF programs.

• UNICEF greeting cards and products accounted for more than $3.4 million in net revenue this year. Long-term partners Pier 1 Imports® and IKEA U.S. once again
sold UNICEF holiday greeting cards in their nationwide stores and gave 100 percent of sale proceeds to the U.S. Fund. UNICEF greeting cards and gifts were also
available year round at participating Hallmark Gold Crown® and Barnes and Noble stores, and online at

Leadership Across the U.S.

A National Board of Directors governs the U.S. Fund for UNICEF. Five Regional Boards carry out the
U.S. Fund’s mission in Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Houston, and Los Angeles. Our volunteer directors
hail from all over the country with a diverse range of backgrounds — the private sector, non-profit
organizations, foundations, media, and publishing, just to name a few. What brings them together is a
shared, unyielding dedication to child survival. Board members shape the U.S. Fund’s work, contribute
expertise and funds, and build key relationships with important communities.

In May, National Board members Mary Callahan Erdoes, Pamela Fiori, and U.S. Fund President and CEO
Caryl M. Stern hosted an event that convened over 100 outstanding women philanthropists in New York
City to spotlight women who are championing charitable causes around the world. Building on its long-
term relationship with the Southeast Regional Board, Delta Air Lines chose the U.S. Fund for the fifth
consecutive year as a charitable partner to receive donated miles from Delta customers (the U.S. Fund
has received a total of 73 million miles over the last five years). In September 2008, members of the
Southwest Regional Board organized the Mystique of India gala in Houston, which featured traditional
Indian music and decorations and raised more than $714,000 for child survival programs in India.

The Midwest Regional Board maintained its vigorous support of UNICEF’s Accelerated Child Survival
and Development program, surpassing the $5 million mark in a $6.5 million fundraising campaign that
began in January 2007. Board members from the Southern California region hosted ten cultivation
events for their friends and area donors. The New England Regional Board and office continued its
Women’s Luncheon Series, which brought together professional and philanthropic women from Boston
and featured presentations by UNICEF Rwanda Representative Joseph Foumbi and other speakers.
In May, a U.S. Fund advisory circle in Seattle gathered local donors to celebrate UNICEF’s work and
engage new supporters. And in June, at a luncheon hosted by U.S. Fund friends in Denver, President
and CEO Caryl M. Stern captivated the audience with first-hand accounts of field visits.

Inspiration Around the World

From Brazil to Sierra Leone, India to Mozambique, Ethiopia to Vietnam — in Fiscal Year 2009,
U.S. Fund for UNICEF donors and partners traveled to countries around the world in order to observe
UNICEF programs that are saving and improving children’s lives in dynamic, innovative ways.

A group visiting Myanmar in the wake of Cyclone Nargis spent time with UNICEF staff who were delivering
emergency relief supplies as well as helping to identify more than 1,000 children separated from their
families during the storm. A trip to Tanzania gave supporters the chance to see UNICEF-assisted child-
friendly schools, which empower students to take an active role in their schools’ governance. Partners
traveling to Honduras visited a UNICEF-supported program that feeds the children of street vendors and
provides them with health care, immunizations, and other essential services. In Malawi, a U.S. Fund
delegation saw the diverse and vital ways UNICEF is helping children in that country who are infected
with HIV/AIDS.

These field visits are an

invaluable tool, enabling U.S.
Fund partners and supporters
to witness — first-hand — the
amazing breadth of UNICEF’s
work. They illustrate what a
profound difference each and
every dollar donated to the U.S.
Fund is making for children
around the globe.

Message from the President
and the Chief Financial Officer

Fiscal Year 2008/2009 represented the fourth year that the U.S. Fund for UNICEF has been
engaged in internal control strengthening through documentation, implementation, and testing,
which are critical to maintaining best practices. The U.S. Fund’s controls were proven effective
during the financial crisis.

The financial summary on page 27 represents highlights from the U.S. Fund’s financial
statements, audited by KPMG, LLP. A complete set of financial statements, including related
notes with the auditors’ opinion, is available upon request.

The Audit Committee of the Board of Directors, in concert with U.S. Fund management,
continues to focus on matters of compliance, accountability, data dependability, and risks that
could affect the internal control systems of the organization.

Under the direction of the Audit Committee, U.S. Fund management has continued to assess
the reliability and effectiveness of its internal controls — reporting the findings back to the
Audit Committee and sharing them with our independent auditors. We also have applied the
same rigor when reviewing our Information Technology systems, where the focus has been on
protecting donor privacy and fraud.

We believe that continued enhancements to existing U.S. Fund internal controls, with oversight
and periodic testing, will provide reasonable assurance regarding the reliability of financial
reporting and the preparation of financial statements for external purposes in accordance with
generally accepted accounting principles.
