United Nations Fund for International Partnerships
United Nations Fund for International Partnerships (UNFIP) "provides a "one-stop" service for partnership opportunities with the UN family. Established by Former Secretary-General Kofi Annan in March 1998, the United Nations Fund for International Partnerships (UNFIP) was set up as an autonomous trust fund, headed by an Executive Director and operating under the leadership of the UN Deputy Secretary-General.
"UNFIP serves as an interface and partnership facilitator between the United Nations System and the United Nations Foundation (UNF), the public charity responsible for administering, over a period of 15 years, Ted Turner's US$1 billion contribution in support of United Nations causes." 
"The Members of the Advisory Board, including ex officio members, are appointed by the Secretary-General and serve for a term of two years following their appointment, unless otherwise decided by the Secretary-General. The Executive Director of UNFIP serves on the Advisory Board as an ex-officio member.
