Engaging Philanthropy in Global Development
What We Do - Our Impact Model
Connecting & Convening
The SDG Philanthropy Platform brings foundations and their grantees to work on national plans for the SDGs with the government and UN. We build connections on the ground and through our digital community platform. To date, the Platform has engaged over 1,500 stakeholders in our global network.
Building Collaborative Pathways
Once we bring stakeholders together, we utilize the collective expertise of our partners to develop pathways where philanthropy and government can collaborate. These pathways define key funding and innovation areas that will accelerate progress towards the SDGs. We have developed 11 scalable pathways to achieve the SDGs.
By connecting key stakeholders and building collaborative pathways for local SDG action, we set the stage to catalyze and fund innovative approaches to solve the world's most pressing problems. Through rich data, ecosystem mapping, and robust networks we connect foundations to initiatives that accelerate progress towards the SDGs. To date, we have funded 8 innovative projects that are using dynamic approaches to ensure safe, universal, and affordable access to water in Ghana, foster Early Childhood Development (ECD) in Kenya, and promote the well-being of children in Zambia.
