A Stronger United Nations

The United Nations Foundation and its sister organization, the Better World Fund, have helped secure U.S. agreement to pay almost $1 billion in UN arrears and rejoin UNESCO. We have supported the UN’s reform processes, leading to the creation of the Democracy Fund, the Peacebuilding Commission, and improved UN management practices. The stories below demonstrate why the world needs the UN more than ever before, and how we are helping to ensure that the UN remains a strong, effective instrument of global peace, prosperity and justice.
