HOW YOU CAN ENGAGE IN 2017

By making a financial contribution

MAKE A FINANCIAL CONTRIBUTION


Relief specialists consider financial contributions to reputable aid agencies as the most valuable and effective form of response in humanitarian emergencies. To make a financial contribution you can donate through:


Central Emergency Response Fund

The Central Emergency Response Fund (CERF) is a fast and effective way to support rapid humanitarian response. CERF provides immediate funding for life-saving humanitarian action at the onset of emergencies and for crises that have not attracted sufficient funding. Contributions are welcome year-round.

Country-based pooled funds


Country-based pooled funds (CBPFs) provide an opportunity for governments and private donors to pool financial contributions to finance response to a specific emergency. They provide rapid funding for scaling up humanitarian operations, filling critical gaps, and strengthening partnerships with aid organizations, including local and international NGOs.

By donating in-kind resources and services

DONATE IN-KIND RESOURCES AND SERVICES

The UN Secretary-General encourages companies to coordinate their response efforts with the United Nations in order to ensure coherence with priorities and to minimize gaps and duplication. To make an in-kind donation of goods or services visit www.business.un.org or write to pss@un.org with specific infor-mation about the contribution, including the timeframe for delivery and any conditions. Contributions must comply with the Guidelines on Cooperation between the UN and the Business Sector.

The United Nations enters into pro-bono agreements with companies which will provide direct assets or services during emergencies. Partnerships work best if established before a disaster occurs. Contact
pss@un.org to discuss the ways in which your company might partner with the UN. As with in-kind contributions, business sector partnerships must comply with the Guidelines on Cooperation between the UN and the Business Sector.
