Starting in 2019, we began incorporating the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) into the Foundation’s work. We wanted to analyze how the work that is being done through the Foundation’s grants and local agencies are supporting the SDGs in a local context.
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 present our third report on the SDGs and want to recognize the amazing work our local agencies are doing in the Cambridge and North Dumfries communities. The data collected below was identified through the applications of the Kids to Camp and Community Grants recipients of 2021.
