NAIMUN strives to be not only an enriching Model UN experience for the delegates who attend, but also a way to bring about real positive change through the conference’s social justice emphasis and philanthropic efforts. Over the course of the weekend, delegates will have opportunities to think about, discuss, and bring about real change in the issues of our ever-evolving world.

NAIMUN’s Philanthropic Spirit

Past Philanthropic Partners
Recognizing the importance of incorporating philanthropy into our initiatives to educate students on important international issues, NAIMUN has partnered with several non­-profits in recent years. NAIMUN Philanthropy has raised over $100,000 for international charities since its inception at NAIMUN XLV. Most recently, NAIMUN LIII partnered with Rotary International to raise funds for polio eradication. We were also very grateful to receive a 2:1 donation match from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation to enhance our contributions to Rotary International twofold.

Malala Fund Announced as NAIMUN LIV Official Charity Partner

NAIMUN LIV is excited to announce our partnership with the Malala Fund for this year's conference! The Malala Fund furthers the mission and work of a young girl, Malala Yousafzai, whose bold advocacy for access to girl's education in her home country of Pakistan inspired both threats and attacks from the Taliban, and international praise for her commitment, vision, and fight. Malala was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 2014 and donated the entirety of her prize money towards the creation of a secondary school for girls in Pakistan. Today, the organization advocates for and invests in increased access to education for young girls, and works to amplify these girls' voices. Over 130 million girls are out of school, missing out on critical opportunities to better their future. This year at NAIMUN, we will be focusing in on this important global issue and raising money for the Malala Fund, to support their mission of "12 years of free, safe, quality education for every girl.”
