Our Mission

Connecting people, ideas, and resources with the United Nations.

The United Nations Foundation was created in 1998 as a U.S. public charity by entrepreneur and philanthropist Ted Turner. Since then, the role of the UN Foundation has evolved from a traditional grantmaker to an actively involved problem solver. Within the framework of more than 10 specific issue campaigns, we work closely with the UN Secretary-General to solve the great challenges of the 21st century – poverty, climate change, energy access, population pressure, gender equity, and disease.

To date, the UN Foundation and our partners have helped the UN keep girls in school; prevent child marriage; increase access to reproductive health education, services, and supplies; provide families with sustainable energy; cut measles deaths by 85 percent in Africa; distribute more than 6 million anti-malaria bed nets to 25 African countries; reduce polio incidence by 99 percent worldwide; and champion the payment of close to $2 billion in U.S. dues to the UN.
