In 2019, we incorporated the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDGs) into our work by asking local organizations to let us know which of the goals our grants were impacting. On a global level, governments, NGOs, community organizations and charities are shining a light where changes are needed. We wanted to report to our stakeholders how their donations were making a difference, as measured against the United Nation’s SDGs.
The work of community foundations already connected to many of the 17 SDGs, but as part of an international philanthropic movement, community foundations have an opportunity to further leverage knowledge, partners and activities in common purpose with others, connecting our efforts locally to a broader vision in order to improve the world around us.
We are pleased to provide our second report on this work and to congratulate our local charities for the positive changes they are making in the lives of Cambridge & North Dumfries residents.
