Sustainable Development Giving Landscape Report
CAF America’s report explores the SDG landscape that has emerged based on its donors’ philanthropic giving since the goals entered into force on January 1st, 2016. It looks at the SDGs that rose to the top based on the level of support received and provides a window into how priorities have shifted year-by-year.
The numbers illustrate CAF America’s amazing year of service to domestic and international philanthropists: in 2019, donors contributed more than $294 million in support of charities and charitable projects around the world—a 39% increase over 2018—and surpassed $1 billion in total grants distributed since our founding. This exponential growth is a testament to the value of our leadership in cross-border philanthropy and our dedication to helping donors achieve transformative impact on a truly global scale.
