Giving Compass’ Take:
• Rockefeller Philanthropy Advisors created a platform that connects philanthropists by providing resources and information sharing tools concerning SDG progress.
• How will this platform help spread awareness throughout donor networks?
• Read about how philanthropy makes some big bets on the SDGs.
The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) lay out an extraordinary but ambitious vision for our future. 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. Aware of this, the SDG Philanthropy Platform has launched a website, SDGPhilanthropy.org, during the 72nd Session of the General Assembly of the United Nations.
Developed specifically as a community platform, the new SDGphilanthropy.org will facilitate productive collaboration and resource sharing. Using the community tools on the site, philanthropists, foundations, government stakeholders, UN professionals, and social innovators interested in the Global Goals can now for the first time collaborate and engage in direct dialogue with like-minded peers, post updates on SDG initiatives and events, and share best practices and lessons learned.
