United Nations Association Center, Supporting UNICEF since 1975
The purpose of the United Nations Association Center (UNA-Center) is to raise funds for UNICEF and educational programs.
Our biggest generator of funds is our retail store, which offers a marvelous selection of globally sourced folk art and crafts, including textiles, jewelry, ceramics, clothing, books, toys, objets d'art and more.
We also think it's extremely important to promote understanding between cultures. That is why the UNA Center regularly sponsors artisans and craftspeople—so they can show you first-hand what it takes to make the wonderful items they make.
Volunteers—Our Ambassadors of Good Will
(and Great Service)!
Since 1975, our volunteers have been the engine of our success. We rely on them to welcome, inform, advise, assist—in short, to make your visit to the UNA Center the special occasion it ought to be.
