More than 60 bilateral and multilateral donors contribute to the financing of UNRWA’s field programmes and projects. UNRWA works in partnership with a multitude of donors - national governments and aid agencies, private foundations, grassroots organisations, companies, other United Nations agencies and more.
Between them, they help provide an array of services for vulnerable refugees ranging from education, health services, food aid to the improvement of refugee camp infrastructure and the provision of microfinance services.
In 2012, the United States and the European Commission were the two largest donors to UNRWA; their total contributions represented 47.7 per cent of the overall funding received by the Agency. The United Kingdom, Sweden and Norway join the overall top five.
