This year's event aims to support UNICEF Next Generation's national campaign, launching the UNICEF pilot program for Syrian refugee women and newborns in Jordan, and supporting the UNICEF Emergency Relief Funds currently providing life-saving interventions in seven level 3 emergencies in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Iraq, Nigeria, South Sudan, Syria and surrounding territories, the Rohingya Refugee Crisis, and Yemen. Over 300 of Chicago's emerging leaders and philanthropists will be in attendance. 


UNICEF Next Generation brings together young philanthropists, business leaders, influencers and others in their 20s and 30s who are committed to UNICEF’s work to save and improve children’s lives. UNICEF has saved the lives of more children than any other humanitarian organization. From providing children with clean drinking water, school books and medicine, to protecting them during conflict and emergencies - UNICEF puts children first. Since our inception in 2009, we have fundraised over $9.7 million and supported 16 UNICEF projects. Join us
