October 24, 2017

On October 24, 2017, the CAF America team gathered in our headquarters in Alexandria, Virginia to celebrate the 72nd birthday of the United Nations.

As an organization that helps Americans support important causes across the world, CAF America has been aligning our grantmaking with the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) since 2016.
