UN Women is incredibly grateful for its donor partners’ commitment to making gender equality and women’s empowerment a global priority and for supporting UN Women’s life-changing programmes in 90 countries.
In 2016, UN Women received financial support from 108 Member States, forward-thinking business partners, generous philanthropists and individual donors who want to do their part to change the world. With your combined support, UN Women mobilized a total of USD 327,352,866.
While progress is being made, there continues to be chronic underinvestment in gender equality and women’s empowerment. UN Women appeals to all our stakeholders to step up your contributions and your commitment to creating brighter futures for women and girls everywhere.
