Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

In 2020 alone, an estimated 287,000 women died during and following pregnancy and childbirth - 99% are in low- and middle-income countries. This means that every 2 minutes a woman dies from pregnancy-related causes. Most of these deaths can be prevented if the mother has access to skilled care during pregnancy and childbirth. Worldwide, 257 million women who want to avoid or delay pregnancy face significant barriers that stop them from accessing and using safe, modern methods of contraception, which would have further helped to prevent needless loss of life. Every day, millions of girls and women across the world suffer violence simply because they are female. One in three will experience sexual or physical violence in their lifetime.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Our vision is to realize a world where women become pregnant only when they want to. A world where giving birth is safe for every mother and child. And a world where women and girls live free from harmful practices and violence.

USA for UNFPA has embarked on a new ten-year strategic plan to raise $100 million between 2021 and 2030 to support this vision and work towards achieving the three transformational goals: end the unmet need for family planning, end preventable maternal deaths and end gender-based violence and harmful practices against women and girls.

Each and every day, USA for UNFPA staff live our values by adhering to four guiding principles. Everything USA for UNFPA does is with the aim to make real, positive and lasting measurable impacts on the lives of women and girls.

Courage: for and with those we serve, we say and do what’s right, not what’s easy.

Integrity: as part of turning our values into action, we are responsible and transparent.

Accountability: we make a real impact for women and girls worldwide, and we can prove it.

Passion: we are passionate about our work and are deeply committed to our mission.

Under the leadership of the Board of Directors, CEO and dedicated staff, USA for UNFPA has grown over the years and is projected to end 2022 with an income target of $5.1 million. Our aim is to be the leading voice for global sexual and reproductive health in the US and become a recognized donor centered organization working at the cutting edge of marketing, communications, public engagement, grant-making and fully utilizing technology and data to create meaningful relationships between supporters and those we serve.

USA for UNFPA's fundraising strategy focuses on building and growing the revenue we raise from individual channels because we believe it will lead to significant growth over time. The channels we will pursue are major gifts, direct response, and planned giving. We will also establish and launch our partnership program and expand foundation and corporate support to diversify our fundraising portfolio. This is key to achieving our $100 million goal by 2030.

At USA for UNFPA, we are growing our organizational capacity to achieve our three transformational goals for a gender-equitable world. We are improving our internal systems from donation processing to email marketing platforms, and investing in our marketing and fundraising activities to broaden our reach and support throughout the United States.

We are equipped to deploy this support wisely and widely thanks to UNFPA, the leading UN agency for sexual and reproductive health, and its global network of partners and programs in over 150 countries worldwide. UNFPA is uniquely positioned to deliver care whenever and wherever an emergency, humanitarian crisis, or natural disaster occurs. UNFPA is able to rapidly respond to the needs on the ground especially ensuring women and girls have access to lifesaving reproductive and maternal and newborn health care, no matter what.

In 2022, the USA for UNFPA community provided critical funds to UNFPA which helped 1.4 million women deliver their babies safely while living through humanitarian crises. 6.5 million individuals were reached with lifesaving sexual and reproductive health awareness raising activities and information. Support was provided to 2 million survivors of violence and harmful practices. Over 500,000 Dignity Kits containing necessary hygiene supplies, period products and warm clothing were distributed in emergency situations including to those impacted by the Ukraine war.

This was made possible thanks to the over 5,000 new supporters inspired in 2022 to partner with us and increasing our total funds raised, ensuring we can go further for women and girls around the world. Our monthly donor community grew by 173% - providing sustained support for UNFPA’s global programs. With continued investment in fundraising, we can maintain this growth and be able to reach more women and girls with the care they need.
