The Elsie Initiative Fund and the Secretariat firmly acknowledges that without the ongoing generous donor financial and other in-kind support, the Elsie Initiative Fund and its ambitious program could not exist.
Mobilizing resources from UN Member States and therefore broadening the Elsie Initiative Fund’s resource base, is a key component of the Elsie Initiative Fund’s strategic requirements and its longevity. Effective resource mobilization and strong partnerships will enable the Elsie Initiative Fund to deliver on its long-term goal of accelerating the pace of change towards the increased meaningful participation of uniformed women in UN peace operations.
The Elsie Initiative Fund also welcomes contributions from Non-Government Organizations (NGOs) and Foundations. Potential donors who are interested in making a donation are invited to contact the Secretariat through our Contact Page.
