2008 Annual Report

2008: Believe in Zero
When a child dies needlessly, the Earth should stop spinning. Because the preventable death of a child — any child, anywhere — is unspeakable, unacceptable. But every day, more than 25,000 children die from causes that could have been averted. They die for want of a five-cent tetanus vaccine, or safe water to drink, or enough food to keep them nourished. They die from causes most people in the industrialized world rarely ever think about. UNICEF has made significant headway against this grim toll. By doing whatever it takes wherever it is needed, UNICEF has saved more children’s lives than any other humanitarian organization. In fact, UNICEF just announced some remarkable news: the number of worldwide deaths of children under five has dropped to the lowest level ever, 9.2 million per year — or more than 25,000 per day. That’s a decline of 27 percent since 1990 and of more than 60 percent since 1960 — and it shows that UNICEF’s child survival strategy is working. Good news like this heralds even more progress for children in the future, if we all work together. With your continued support, UNICEF and the U.S. Fund will strive to roll back the number of needless child deaths all the way to zero.

A Message from the Chair and the President
It’s been a truly momentous year here at the U.S. Fund for UNICEF. Thanks to your commitment and generosity, we were able to make significant strides in the fight for child survival. All over the world, your contributions have helped UNICEF counter grave threats to children, giving them the chance to thrive and grow. After a cyclone lashed Myanmar — and then, ten days later, an earthquake hit parts of China — you helped UNICEF speed medicines, clean water, and school supplies to vulnerable children in both disaster zones. In Haiti, Sierra Leone, Zimbabwe, and Eritrea — where the food crisis has fueled deadly malnutrition — your support means that children can get the therapeutic foods they need to survive. In countries like Swaziland, Belize, Jamaica, and Nepal — where AIDS continues to claim the lives of so many children and leave so many others orphaned — your contributions have helped expand treatment, care, and prevention programs. From Angola to Madagascar, Pakistan to the Philippines, your support helped UNICEF deliver immunizations and other lifesaving health interventions to children and families. Your support enabled the U.S. Fund to reach a total revenue for fiscal year 2008 of nearly $450 million. With your help, we have seen great success. Thank you. But we can’t stop now. Consider this: If you see ten children drowning … do you stop and pat yourself on the back after you have rescued five … or do you refuse to rest until zero children are in danger? We believe in zero. Zero children dying from preventable causes. Now let us join together and work toward a day when every child survives and has a promising future.

Getting It Done
UNICEF receives its funding from a vast spectrum of exclusively voluntary contributions: a retiree sends $25 in response to a direct-marketing appeal; a corporation reaches out to aid children whose lives have been upended by an earthquake; a government allots $100 million or more to help fund child survival programs. For calendar year 2007, the U.S. Government provided more than $277 million in total funding to UNICEF, making it the largest single donor. Your critical donations are put to smart and thoughtful use, saving and improving children’s lives through innovative and low-cost methods. For instance, UNICEF is one of the world’s largest buyers of insecticide-treated mosquito nets and distributed over 18 million nets last year. This inexpensive intervention protects children and their families from malaria-carrying mosquitoes and can reduce cases of that deadly disease by 50 percent. UNICEF also reaches 55 percent of the world’s children with lifesaving immunizations against other killer diseases like measles and tetanus. In fact, due to the efforts of UNICEF and its partners, measles deaths in Africa dropped by 91 percent between 2000 and 2006. UNICEF partners with government ministries, corporations, foundations, and humanitarian groups all over the world to aid children in emergencies and to implement and maintain long-term, life-changing programs that improve children’s health and well-being in over 150 countries. With a staff of thousands of highly skilled professionals, UNICEF reaches children who have nowhere to turn for assistance. Ninety percent of its personnel work in the field: everywhere from enormous countries like China to tiny islands like Samoa. These dedicated workers couldn’t carry out their duties without the lifesaving tools of their trade — medicines, tents, blankets, bed nets, water purification tablets, obstetric kits, therapeutic foods, educational kits, vaccines. These materials and many others are disseminated through UNICEF’s vast supply network, including its mammoth warehouse in Copenhagen and hubs in Dubai, Panama, and Shanghai. UNICEF increased its procurement by 15 percent last year — acquiring a total of $1.4 billion worth of supplies that can mean the difference between life and death for millions of children.

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 $3.3 billion in cash and gifts-in-kind.

Helping Children Survive and Thrive
UNICEF’s mission is simple: give every child the basics for a safe and healthy childhood. But threats to children in many parts of the world are so numerous, so serious, and so persistent that getting the job done is often far from simple or easy. UNICEF has the resolve to remain undaunted by war or conflict, disaster or disease, geography or logistical complexity. Harnessing over 60 years of experience as well as its trademark innovation, efficiency, and expertise, UNICEF consistently meets challenges to child survival on many fronts. What follows is a look at UNICEF’s primary program areas — along with examples of notable U.S. Fund contributions and partnerships. Also included are some stories of children and families whose lives have been transformed by UNICEF’s work.

UNICEF is the global leader in vaccine supply, successfully protecting more than half of the world’s children from deadly diseases. Last year, it procured a record 3.2 billion doses of vaccine worth $617 million. In Iraq, under difficult and dangerous circumstances, UNICEF immunized more than 4 million children against polio. In Pakistan, UNICEF delivered 64 million doses of measles vaccine. While these are major feats, millions of children continue to go unvaccinated. Millions more die from other preventable causes like malaria, diarrhea, and pneumonia — illnesses that can often be averted with something as simple as a $7.50 insecticide-treated bed net or a six-cent pack of oral rehydration salts. Utilizing its extensive supply network, UNICEF distributes these and other proven health interventions by any means available — via train, truck, plane, boat, donkey, camel, motorcycle, and on foot — to reach children in the most remote regions of the world. Through its Accelerated Child Survival and Development program, UNICEF also works with governments, non-governmental organizations, and community leaders to deliver health services in a comprehensive package that includes childhood immunizations, vitamin A supplementation, prenatal and postnatal care, and prevention and treatment of disease.

Saving Mothers and Newborns
The Pampers “One Pack = One Vaccine” Campaign Each year, 140,000 babies and up to 30,000 mothers die from maternal and neonatal tetanus contracted due to unsanitary childbirth procedures. But Pampers® — with help from award-winning actress and producer Salma Hayek — has joined UNICEF in trying to change that. From April through August 2008, the Pampers “One Pack = One Vaccine” campaign donated the cost of a tetanus vaccine (five cents) to the U.S. Fund each time a specially marked product was sold in the United States and Canada. To date, the North American “One Pack = One Vaccine” campaign has already provided enough funding for over 45 million tetanus vaccines. Pampers aims to raise funds to provide UNICEF with an additional 200 million vaccines over the next three years through the global campaign.

A malnourished child is not merely hungry. Malnutrition — the debilitating condition that results from not having sufficient vitamins, protein, and minerals — can leave a child unable to develop properly, grow strong, or fight viral and bacterial infections. In young children, malnutrition can transform a simple illness or infection into a life or death situation. Every year, it plays a major role in more than a third of the 9.2 million under-five child deaths that occur worldwide. When malnutrition doesn’t kill outright, it can leave a child with irreversible health problems like stunted growth, dulled intellectual capabilities, and blindness. The current global food crisis has endangered the lives of millions of children around the world as families who are already struggling to survive face soaring food costs. UNICEF is combating malnutrition by providing essential vitamins and micronutrients, as well as lifesaving therapeutic foods like Plumpy’nut®, to help undernourished children gain weight. Plumpy’nut — a ready-to-use peanut paste containing protein, minerals, and vitamins — has the power to almost instantly bring a child back from the brink of starvation. In 2007, UNICEF acquired $50 million worth of nutritional products to fight acute malnutrition, doubling its procurement of ready-to-use therapeutic foods. These life-sustaining supplies were delivered to 41 countries to help keep children nourished and healthy.

Back from the Brink of Acute Malnutrition
Gabsile Mamba of Swaziland feared for her infant son Siyabonga’s life. The boy was vomiting, suffering from diarrhea, and losing weight — fast. “At one point, I thought he was going to die,” whispered the twenty-two-year-old mother. “I was very, very worried.” In 2007, Swaziland, a tiny land-locked country in Southern Africa, experienced its worst drought in 15 years. The resulting food shortage took a stark toll on the country’s children. In response, UNICEF worked with the government to establish therapeutic feeding centers throughout the country. A panicked Gabsile rushed her son to one of these centers, where the boy was diagnosed with acute malnutrition. Nurses prescribed Plumpy’nut — a high-protein therapeutic food supplied by UNICEF in collaboration with other partners — and soon, Siyabonga started to get better. “I saw a lot of improvement,” Gabsile said. “I could see he was regaining weight.” Last May, inside a small mudbrick home, a pudgy Siyabonga sat restlessly on his mother’s lap. Babbling and grabbing at anything within reach, he was as fidgety and fussy as many thirteen-month-old babies. And for that, his mother is grateful.

Water and Sanitation
Water is essential to life. Yet 1 billion people do not have a safe water supply, and 2.6 billion people — nearly half of humanity — live without proper sanitation. Every year, 1.5 million children die before their fifth birthday because they lack clean water and adequate sanitation. UNICEF supports water, sanitation, and hygiene programs in 93 countries and is recognized as a world leader in tackling water problems. In 2007, UNICEF procured some $68 million worth of water and sanitation supplies: everything from large, solar-powered well systems to tiny purification tablets. Following the Myanmar cyclone, UNICEF rushed more than 4.5 million of those tablets, as well as myriad other purification tools, to the Irrawaddy Delta to avert an outbreak of waterborne diseases like cholera. Since 1990, thanks to the work of UNICEF and its partners, at least 1.2 billion people have gained access to clean drinking water. With innovations such as rainwater-harvesting systems and household water treatment products, UNICEF finds creative and sustainable new ways to make sure children and their families have a safe water supply. But there are times when the immediate need is so great that emergency water tankering interventions are the only solution. UNICEF supported tankering operations in Iraq and in drought-ravaged areas of Africa — despite dangers posed by military conflict — to ensure that children did not go without this essential resource.

Committed to Child Survival
Marjorie and Bob Schaffner Marjorie and Bob Schaffner have been members of the U.S. Fund for UNICEF family since 2002, when Marjorie became the Director of the Midwest Regional Office. Two years ago, Marjorie helped launch the Midwest Regional Office’s $6.2 million campaign to support UNICEF’s Accelerated Child Survival and Development (ACSD) program. The ACSD initiative aims to reduce child and maternal deaths through a comprehensive package of interventions including immunizations, prevention of disease, and improved access to safe drinking water. After Marjorie retired in August 2007, she and Bob committed $75,000 to support the campaign. In October of that year, the couple traveled to Rwanda to see first-hand how the ACSD strategy is saving children’s lives. Moved by the experience, the Schaffners made another donation of $25,000 to specifically support UNICEF programs in Rwanda. “This truly was a once in a lifetime gift for us,” Marjorie said. “But what greater privilege is there than to save a child’s life.”

Child Protection
An estimated 300 million children bear the physical and emotional scars left by violence, exploitation, and abuse suffered at the hands of adults. Some of the grimmest stories emerge from the worst forms of child labor — including grueling work in factories and mines — and from the experiences of child soldiers and sex slaves. UNICEF uses its access and influence to work with governments, non-governmental organizations, civil groups, and communities to protect children from harm and ensure that their rights are upheld. It advocates for legislation that safeguards children from abuse and exploitation, helps establish monitoring systems that document and track cases of abuse, and supports rehabilitation and recovery programs for victims. In the wake of emergencies like the earthquake in Sichuan, China, UNICEF sets up family tracing systems to register children separated from their parents and creates protective centers known as “child-friendly spaces.” UNICEF also steps in to aid children in the crosshairs of conflict, war, or other manmade disasters. In the Democratic Republic of the Congo and other countries where the use of sexual violence as a weapon of war has become systematic, UNICEF is pushing for laws that protect girls and women and is helping survivors heal through medical treatment, psychosocial counseling, schooling, and job skills training.

A Girl Soldier Gets Help
Gloria was just twelve when she and her brother were taken from their family home in rural Antioquia, Colombia, and pressganged into service as soldiers for an armed group. In conflict zones around the world, forcible recruitment of children by militias and other armed factions is horrifyingly common, and youngsters who should be going to school and playing with friends find themselves marching with rifles and fighting for their lives. Frequently, girls like Gloria become the victims of sexual assault as well. After two years, Gloria was able to escape. But for many child soldiers, freedom does not mean their ordeal has ended; they are deeply traumatized by all they have seen and endured. UNICEF helps former child soldiers recover with counseling and job skills training. In Colombia, Gloria was able to enter a UNICEF-supported program that provided her with support from a psychosocial team as well as a monthly economic stipend, so she could begin to put her life back together.

For more than a quarter-century, the AIDS epidemic has preyed upon young and old alike, hampering development and shredding the fabric of whole communities. Though important progress has been made in combating AIDS, the disease is still just as merciless today — and millions of children remain in its path. In 2007, an estimated 2.1 million children under the age of fifteen were living with HIV, and 290,000 died of AIDS. UNICEF and the U.S. Fund have placed children center stage in the fight against the virus, committing millions of dollars to prevention, care, and treatment. In 2007, UNICEF delivered medicines and other HIV/AIDS-related supplies to more than 65 countries. UNICEF’s efforts — along with those of its many partners — have yielded some heartening results. At the end of 2007, nearly 500,000 women were able to receive antiretroviral therapy (ART) to prevent transmission of the virus to their unborn children — up from 350,000 in 2006. Also last year, 197,000 children were receiving ART, compared to 127,000 in 2006. Despite these improvements, the vast majority of those in need of treatment are still not getting it. Meanwhile, AIDS continues to take hundreds of thousands of young lives each year and to rob millions of children not only of their parents, but also of teachers, role models, and future opportunities. Protecting these children is a major UNICEF priority. In collaboration with governments and communities, UNICEF supports children affected by AIDS with counseling, nutritious meals, health care, and education.

Transforming a Clinic to Address Many Ills
Three years ago, Rita Jiriko arrived at the Primary Care Clinic in Garaku, Nigeria, to give birth to her first child. The young mother-to-be fretted not only about her labor, but also about the condition of the clinic. At the time, the health facility was housed in a dilapidated building and had only one bed. “Many pregnant women stayed away from the clinic,” Rita recalled. But thanks to UNICEF’s Accelerated Child Survival and Development (ACSD) strategy, the Garaku Clinic has since received a major overhaul. The five-room primary health care facility is now adequately staffed and offers comprehensive services like prenatal care, immunization, and voluntary HIV testing. The clinic provides free insecticide-treated bed nets and disease prevention classes to pregnant women and new moms. Rita appreciates the refurbished facility and its improved services. Her baby has been immunized against polio, and she has benefited from the clinic’s classes. “I have learned how to prepare oral rehydration salt solution for my children when they have diarrhea, how to protect them from mosquito bites, and how important immunization is,” Rita said. “I didn’t know about these things before.”

Education is the key to progress. It unlocks children’s potential and is an investment in the future of the economy and social advancement of developing countries. Though great improvements have been made in recent years, 93 million youths still miss out on the opportunity to attend school — that is the equivalent of all the children in the United States, Canada, and the United Kingdom combined. UNICEF helps build and improve schools and supports learning programs around the globe to help children everywhere get a quality education. In Southern Sudan, the UNICEF-supported “Go to School” campaign has helped over 1 million children find their way back to the classroom after decades of civil war and upheaval. UNICEF rebuilt schools, trained thousands of teachers, and delivered millions of school bags, books, pencils, and other essential learning and teaching tools to Southern Sudan by truck, boat, and even on foot. In India, children who live on the streets or in great poverty now have access to school, thanks to Mobile Learning Centers — buses specially designed by UNICEF and equipped with laptop computers, audio-visual equipment, and a full range of teaching and learning materials. In total in 2007, UNICEF provided over 12 million students and more than 100,000 teachers with indispensable educational kits and supplies.

Helping Disabled Children in Vietnam
Ford Foundation and Lanza Family Foundation Vietnam is home to a disproportionately large number of people with disabilities, including those who may have been affected by exposure to dioxin from Agent Orange. There are 1.2 million disabled Vietnamese children, according to a 2004 government estimate. Last April, the U.S. Fund announced a campaign to raise funds to help UNICEF provide quality health care and education to these vulnerable children. U.S. Fund President and CEO Caryl M. Stern, board Chair Anthony Pantaleoni, and board members Peter Lamm and Téa Leoni had visited Vietnam the previous month, along with a representative of the Ford Foundation. Ford, which has supported efforts to address the effects of Agent Orange since 2000, awarded the U.S. Fund $1 million to aid disabled Vietnamese children. U.S. Fund donors matched Ford’s generous grant dollar for dollar. Among them was philanthropist Pat Lanza. After meeting with Stern and Pantaleoni, Lanza and the Lanza Family Foundation committed $500,000 to support this critical program.

In the last decade, millions of children have died as a result of emergencies, and countless others have been physically and emotionally damaged by the violence and chaos of natural and manmade disasters. When it comes to helping children in emergencies, it’s not just that UNICEF gets there fast — it’s that UNICEF is there already. With permanent programs in so many countries, UNICEF can instantly deploy pre-positioned supplies, giving children and their families a crucial lifeline of aid to see them through the crisis. In Myanmar, where UNICEF has been working for more than 50 years, field staff began responding to Cyclone Nargis while the brutal storm was still tearing through the Irrawaddy Delta. Just over a week later, UNICEF helped survivors of the massive China earthquake — delivering relief supplies, including 16 tons of tents, 15,000 blankets, and 60,000 school kits. Before an emergency even develops, UNICEF is often able to anticipate where and how it will respond thanks to its one-of-a-kind operations center (OPSCEN) — an extraordinary information and communications hub at its headquarters in New York City. Each minute of every day, members of OPSCEN’s multilingual staff monitor potential catastrophes — everything from foreboding weather patterns to humanitarian crises to political unrest around the world.

A Safe Haven After the Storm
Twelve-year-old Saw Leh Ler Shee was going to the grocery store for his mother when Cyclone Nargis barreled down on Myanmar. As the monstrous storm began to flatten houses all around him, Ler Shee clung to a tree, where he rode out the cyclone through the long night. In the morning, he walked back home — past dead bodies and wrecked buildings — only to find his house destroyed and his family gone. Eventually, Ler Shee reunited with his grandmother and aunt, and they made their way to one of the many UNICEF-supported child-friendly spaces established after the cyclone. Child-friendly spaces are community safe havens staffed by teachers, psychologists, and social workers, where kids can play, learn, recover from trauma and — perhaps most importantly — just be kids. “I like playing football the most,” said Ler Shee, who feared that he lost his brother, sister, and both of his parents to the storm. UNICEF helped Ler Shee and hundreds of other children in Myanmar and earthquake-affected China to trace family members. And Ler Shee felt safe and comfortable at the child-friendly space. “I like it here,” he said. “I don’t want to go back to the village anymore, because many people died and there will be a lot of ghosts there.”

A Great Year for Children
• For the second year in a row, the U.S. Fund for UNICEF recruited, tutored, and accompanied an enthusiastic group of young people who participated in the Junior 8 Summit held at the time of the G8 Summit in Hokkaido, Japan. The U.S. Fund for UNICEF team worked closely with their counterparts from the G8 countries, as well as young participants from the developing world, to hammer out an international plan of action focused on climate change and improving foreign aid.

It has been a great year for children — a year in which the U.S. Fund for UNICEF embarked on exciting new campaigns and expanded existing ones, a year in which we welcomed important new partners, and a year in which the exceptional generosity of our supporters has enabled us to fund so many of the essential programs described in this report. What follows beginning on this page is a look at some of this year’s creative educational programs, public information initiatives, and advocacy campaigns that raise awareness about child survival and support UNICEF’s global work. On pages 25-27, you will find highlights of the year’s fundraising initiatives, which have provided key assistance to UNICEF’s lifesaving programs. We thank all of our donors and partners for helping UNICEF do whatever it takes to save children’s lives all over the world.

Sources of Support
The U.S. Fund’s total public support and revenue this year reached nearly $450 million. What follows is a bird’s-eye view of this year’s extraordinary fundraising activities. For a more extensive roster of U.S. Fund contributors, please refer to the supporter lists that begin on page 30. In

• More than 2,200 volunteers joined the Tap Project (see page 27), contributing an estimated 60,000 hours to recruit restaurants, promote the campaign in their local communities, and dine at participating restaurants. • Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF, the U.S. Fund’s flagship fundraising campaign, has raised over $144 million to date in the U.S. One of the nation’s longest running youth philanthropy programs, it is often a child’s first experience with volunteerism and helping others. This year’s campaign raised money to help support UNICEF’s global programs with the aid of thousands of children, parents, teachers, community and faith-based groups, and corporations around the nation. • Our Office of Public Policy and Advocacy in Washington, D.C., leads a citizens’ campaign every year to help secure the U.S. Government’s annual contribution to UNICEF. And thanks in part to these dynamic efforts, Congress approved a $129 million contribution in fiscal year 2008 — its highest funding recommendation ever for UNICEF. In addition, advocacy activity with the U.S. Coalition for Child Survival and the non-profit grassroots organization RESULTS helped the U.S. Fund secure further congressional funding for bilateral maternal and child health programs. Advocacy collaboration with Rotary International and Kiwanis International helped ensure appropriations for polio eradication and iodine deficiency elimination campaigns. • The U.S. Fund’s Campus Initiative continues to expand. On over 65 U.S. campuses, club members support UNICEF’s work by conducting panel discussions, fundraising for specific programs, raising awareness of UNICEF’s work, and creating grassroots engagement in support of UNICEF activities. • Over 15,000 people are registered as volunteers through the U.S. Fund’s Online Volunteer Center. Volunteers conduct fundraisers, organize Halloween parties, host book clubs discussing issues related to child survival, respond to advocacy alerts, and more. • A first-ever national pilot study group for the U.S. Fund focused on the effectiveness of TeachUNICEF lesson plans in the classroom. The group consisted of middle and high school students from across the country using lesson plans on the topics of child labor, poverty, and the impact of armed conflict. The successful results led to the refinement of lesson plans based on UNICEF’s annual flagship publication, The State of the World’s Children. Ninety-seven percent of the teachers responded that they would likely use the materials in the future, and 65 percent of the students stated that they would take action with the information they learned.

addition, for a comprehensive look at contributions by category and type, please see page 29.
• Corporations remained pivotal strategic partners in support of UNICEF programs. Gucci continued its annual Holiday Campaign to Benefit UNICEF, in which the company donated a percentage of sales from select items to support UNICEF. The company also presented an unprecedented star-studded fundraising event in New York, hosted by Madonna, which raised over $2.6 million for the U.S. Fund. Both initiatives supported UNICEF programs for orphans and children made vulnerable by HIV/AIDS. • Pampers’ “One Pack = One Vaccine” international initiative to help protect women and their newborn babies from tetanus was launched in the U.S. and Canada in the spring of 2008 (see page 9 for more information). • • The GE Foundation extended its commitment to UNICEF through an additional $700,000 for emergency relief in Darfur. U.S. Fund corporate partners once again offered generous product support this year. In particular, Merck provided its medicine Mectizan for the treatment of river blindness; it also contributed vaccines to fight a mumps outbreak in Moldova. Pfizer increased its donations of the antibiotic Zithromax to treat trachoma, a leading cause of preventable blindness. • In 2007, American Express unveiled The Members Project®, which brought American Express Cardmembers from across the country together to vote on one project concept they wanted American Express to fund. The winning idea: supply safe drinking water to millions of children in the developing world. UNICEF was selected to bring the idea to life, with a $2 million donation to the U.S. Fund from American Express.

• Overall this year, the U.S. Fund received donations, large and small, from more than 500,000 individual contributors. An anonymous donor contributed $5 million in unrestricted funds to support UNICEF programs worldwide. This is the largest unrestricted gift from an individual to the U.S. Fund in our 60-year history. More than 380 major individual donors contributed $10,000 or more in fiscal year 2008 — a 10 percent increase from fiscal year 2007. Total giving from this important group of supporters increased by $3.4 million — from $14.4 million last year to $17.8 million in fiscal year 2008. In addition, the U.S. Fund received bequest contributions totaling more than $10.5 million. • Individual donors participated in a wide variety of educational events this year. Groups of individual supporters from around the country traveled to Angola, Brazil, Indonesia, Vietnam, and Rwanda to see UNICEF’s lifesaving work firsthand. Closer to home, donors participated in a record 67 events nationwide, which took place in 22 cities including Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Denver, Houston, Los Angeles, New York, and Seattle. The events ranged from spectacular galas to in-depth luncheon discussions with global leaders and UNICEF staffers from around the world. The U.S. Fund was also proud to host three events for major donors at its new office space in New York City’s Financial District, including an intimate luncheon with President and CEO Caryl M. Stern, who spoke movingly about her recent experiences in Darfur and Vietnam. • The U.S. Fund website, www.unicefusa.org, was redesigned to expand the functions offered to visitors. The revamped site includes new features, personalization options, tools for social bookmarking, and personal fundraising pages. This year, the website generated more than $11.8 million in online donations. • The lighting of the UNICEF Snowflakes in New York City and Beverly Hills kicked off yet another wonderful holiday season. And the celebration continued, with two black-tie galas that collectively raised a total of $4.25 million for UNICEF’s work in the field. This was an exceptional year: Hallmark Cards became the Snowflake Project’s first national sponsor, signing on with a $200,000 donation, and Tiffany & Co. supported the New York Snowflake lighting with a donation and cause-marketing partnership that totaled $150,000, plus in-kind donations. • Partnerships with non-governmental organizations yielded significant results this year. Malaria No More (MNM), an organization dedicated to ending malaria deaths, provided $3 million in a challenge grant for insecticide-treated bed nets and other malaria interventions in Africa. Our donors responded generously, returning more than $3 million. Children and expectant • • Foundation partnerships remain an important source of support for the U.S. Fund. The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation provided more than $3.9 million for malaria research and prevention programs as well as humanitarian emergencies in West Africa. American Idol’s Charity Projects Entertainment Fund donated $6 million to support UNICEF child survival and education programs in sub-Saharan Africa. The Ford Foundation awarded the U.S. Fund $1 million to aid children in Vietnam living with disabilities. Ford’s generous grant was matched dollar for dollar by U.S. Fund donors, doubling the amount of support for these vulnerable children. Other key supporters included the Richard and Rhoda Goldman Fund, the Kind World Foundation, the Stavros Niarchos Foundation, The ELMA Philanthropies, The Ceil and Michael E. Pulitzer Foundation, and The Summit Foundation. UNICEF greeting cards and products accounted for more than $3.2 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. For the first time, Barnes & Noble sold UNICEF cards year-round in their stores across the country. • The innovative Tap Project, which asks diners at participating restaurants to pay $1 for the tap water they would normally get for free, expanded last year from a New York pilot program to an exciting national campaign. More than 2,300 restaurants in 44 states took part in Tap, which raised $555,000 in the U.S. to support UNICEF’s lifesaving water and sanitation programs. In New York, more than 500 youths supported Tap by participating in the NYC Water Walk. • For 57 years, millions of children and adults have participated in Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF (TOT), the U.S. Fund for UNICEF’s signature campaign. In 2007, thousands of trick-or-treaters, teachers, parents, communities, groups, and corporations helped raise more than $4 million. Key Club International continued to support Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF by raising funds to help children in Swaziland, and Cartoon Network returned as the national premier sponsor. 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 nationwide. mothers in Angola, Liberia, Tanzania, and Mozambique benefited from the bed nets provided by MNM’s grant and the matching funds. MNM also made a grant of $2 million for programs in Tanzania, and an additional grant of $165,000 for nets and distribution support in Madagascar.

A Message from the President and the Chief Financial Officer
Fiscal Year 2007/2008 represented the third year that the U.S. Fund for UNICEF has been engaged in strengthening its internal control documentation and testing intended to address many of the best practices essential to maintaining and strengthening effective internal controls and procedures. The financial summary on page 29 represents highlights from the U.S. Fund for UNICEF’s financial statements, which were audited by KPMG. A complete set of the financial statements, including the related notes with auditors’ opinion, is available upon request. This is our first year with KPMG, and we are confident that our relationship will result in continued improvement in documentation and application of solid controls and financial processes. The Audit Committee of the Board of Directors, in concert with U.S. Fund management and its internal auditor, continues to focus on matters of compliance, accountability, and risk that could affect the internal control systems of the organization. Under the direction of the Audit Committee, U.S. Fund management and the internal auditor have again implemented testing of internal control effectiveness, the findings of which are reported back to the Audit Committee on a quarterly basis. In addition, we have applied the same rigor in reviewing our Information Technology systems. We believe that the existing internal controls of the U.S. Fund for UNICEF, combined with the enhancements we are implementing and our periodic testing, 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.
