Engaging Philanthropy in the Sustainable Development Goals
To end poverty, protect the planet, and ensure prosperity for all, global leaders have agreed on 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to achieve by 2030. These global goals lay out an extraordinary but ambitious vision for our future. The government, private sector, civil society and individuals will all have to do their part to reach these goals. With a $2.5 trillion funding gap and an amplified need for innovation, philanthropy will have a critical role to play in the realization of the SDGs. By joining in collaborative partnerships with government and gaining a seat at the table to engage in national development plans, foundations can scale their impact for more sustainable change.
