Government Partners

UNRWA is funded almost entirely by voluntary contributions. The only exception is a very limited subsidy from the Regular Budget of the United Nations, which is used exclusively for administrative costs. The work of UNRWA could not be carried out without sustained contributions from state and regional governments, the European Union and other government partners, which represented 94.9 per cent of all contributions in 2022.

In 2022, 44.3 per cent of the Agency’s total pledges of US$ 1.17 billion came from EU member states, who contributed US$ 520.3 million, including through the European Commission. The United States, Germany, the EU, and Sweden were the largest individual donors, contributing a cumulative 61.4 per cent of the Agency’s overall funding.
