Sustainable Development Goals

In 2015, the world agreed to work towards a future without poverty, a sustainable planet, peace, and prosperity. The 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), adopted in unanimity by all United Nations Member States, provide a framework of universal goals and targets to be achieved by 2030.

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. In a regional and source-based setting, the report tracks the charitable giving of corporate, foundation, and individual donors through CAF America.
