Department of Political Affairs

Donating to UN electoral assistance

Activities of the Electoral Assistance Division are partly funded from the core budget of the Department of Political Affairs, and partly from voluntary contributions from UN Member States.

Member States that wish to contribute to United Nations electoral assistance activities may contribute to the United Nations Trust Fund for Electoral Assistance, administered by DPA.

The Trust Fund, established under GA Resolution A/RES/46/137, receives two types of contributions:

(i) Earmarked: countries may specify activities or countries for use of their contributions

(ii) Non-earmarked: funds may be allotted to electoral assistance activities at the discretion of the United Nations.

For more information on the Trust Fund for Electoral Assistance, please contact EAD.

Activities of the Electoral Assistance Division also receive funding through the Trust Fund in Support of Political Affairs of DPA.
