We look forward to working with you
UNICEF strongly believes in the power of partnerships and collaborative efforts and has rich history of working with the corporate sector.

Contributions from corporate partners – Indian and multinational – form a large base of our funding. The increasing number of companies wanting UNICEF to help them better design their codes of conduct, CSR strategies and related actions demonstrates that there is strong appetite within the business community for UNICEF’s expanded involvement in CSR.
UNICEF’s corporate partnerships typically involve building mutually beneficial national alliances by aligning the corporation’s philanthropic and marketing needs with UNICEF’s programme objectives. UNICEF’s brand serves as an attractive partner for corporations wanting to make a contribution to the lives of children and at the same time build their own brand and business.
These partnerships not only help UNICEF raise funds but also promote issue-based messaging. Conversely, partnering with UNICEF has also helped build brand equity of partner companies, as well as improve their customer loyalty and market share in the long run.
In partnering with private sector organisations, UNICEF works diligently to try and establish partnerships which are aligned to the core principles of the company/foundation and of UNICEF. 
UNICEF works closely with private companies – large and small – to identify, design and implement alliances that leverage the strengths of the corporate sector on behalf of India’s children.

Some of the ways in which companies can partner with UNICEF include:
- Strategic philanthropy through grants and in-kind contributions
- Employee-giving programs
- Humanitarian relief and support to emergency efforts
- Cause-marketing initiatives
- Sponsorship of events
- Technical innovations in social development 
- Policy influencing and advocacy for child rights
- Promoting corporate social responsibility
- Training and capacity building
UNICEF employs a rigorous due-diligence process to evaluate companies with whom we should engage with.
For instance, UNICEF will not partner with organisations involved in arms and ammunition; alcohol or tobacco products, or with companies whose supply chains may involve child labour.
