A new report recently released by Charities Aid Foundation of America (CAF America), a leader in international grantmaking, finds quality education as the leading issue mobilizing the largest amount of charitable funding toward the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG), and the only issue among the top five most supported SDGs in all nine global regions. The SDG Giving Landscape: An insight into philanthropic giving to the SDGs looks at giving toward the 17 universal goals and targets adopted in unanimity by all United Nations Member States in 2015. Corresponding with the upward trend in overall giving through CAF America (up 200% in 2019 from 2016), the report found giving impacted all 17 SDGs, indicating an overall commitment across individuals, corporations and foundations toward solving world issues.
