Who Are We?

The SDG Philanthropy Platform informs and catalyzes collaboration through building awareness and connections between those working in the philanthropy sector and beyond. We share a belief that the ambitious Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are an important and effective new roadmap to a better world for all. We have brought together hundreds of foundations and philanthropists across many countries to create new partnerships to increase funding and create programs that will have greater, and more sustainable, impact on people’s lives. The SDGs weave together social, economic, and environmental challenges and solutions, and their creation and endorsement by all the world’s governments represents the efforts and voices of millions of people globally.

Launched by the United Nations Development Program, Foundation Center, and Rockefeller Philanthropy Advisors in 2014, our Platform’s partnerships illustrate the dedication of foundations and philanthropists from North and South America to Asia and from Europe to Africa.
