Winner: United Nations Foundation
The United Nations Foundation’s website includes rich detail on the group itself, who it works with and what it is hoping to accomplish. Founded in 1998, the United Nations Foundation builds public-private partnerships to address the world’s most pressing problems, and broadens support for the United Nations through advocacy and public outreach. Through innovative campaigns and initiatives, the Foundation connects people, ideas, and resources to help the UN solve global problems.
The Foundation was created 16 years ago as a U.S. public charity by entrepreneur and philanthropist Ted Turner and now is supported by global corporations, foundations, governments, and individuals. The United Nations Foundation grows constituencies, mobilizes resources and advocates policy changes to support the UN’s work for individual and global progress.
Through the Better World Campaign and the United Nations Association of the United States of America, the foundation advocates in support of a strong, effective, and fully funded United Nations. And, as the single largest network of American supporters of the UN, it educates the public about the UN’s work, mobilizes media to communicate UN efforts, and helps ensure the U.S. government pays its dues to the UN on time and in full.
