The United Nations Foundation builds public-private partnerships to address the world’s most pressing problems and broadens support for the UN through advocacy and public outreach. Through innovative campaigns and initiatives, we connect people, ideas, and resources to help the UN solve global problems. The Foundation was created in 1998 as a U.S. public charity by entrepreneur and philanthropist Ted Turner and now is supported by global corporations, foundations, governments, and individuals.
The United Nations Foundation believes that everyone has a role to play in supporting the life-saving and life-changing work of the United Nations, and that together we can drive progress for people and the planet. As our Founder and Chairman Ted Turner says, “You do not have to be a world leader — or even a billionaire — to make an impact. If we are going to turn things around, we all need to do our part to make it happen. Change starts with you."
