The UN Trust Fund receives voluntary contributions from many partners, including governments, the private sector, UN Women National Committees, non-profit organizations and concerned individuals from around the world. Although the list of UN Trust Fund donors has grown and diversified over the years, work to prevent and end violence against women remains seriously underfunded. Consequently, the UN Trust Fund’s drive to secure adequate funding highlights the need for resources to sustain the remarkable results that grantees have on the lives of women and girls. You too can make a difference. Donate today to take action on ending violence against women and girls.
