What are the Sustainable Development Goals?

The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are a 17-goal framework for global development. These global goals provide a framework for foundations to lead together with governments, civil society, and the private sector for the next 15 years to create a better society both in the U.S. and around the globe.

How is the Council involved?

The Council is partnering with other organizations to help engage philanthropy in the global conversation on the SDGs. Since 2015, we have engaged in a broad range of activities to lead together with civil society, government, and the private sector in achieving the SDGs. We have and will continue to host convenings and webinars, produce resources for philanthropy to engage in the SDGs, and build awareness of the goals across our sector.
