A new report from the Charities Aid Foundation of America highlights trends in philanthropic giving in support of the United Nations‘ Sustainable Development Goals.

Based on grants recommended by CAF America’s individual, corporate, and foundation donor-advised funds between January 2016 and April 2019, the report, The SDG Giving Landscape: An Insight Into Philanthropic Giving to the SDGs (33 pages, PDF), found that the five goals receiving the most support over that period were quality education (SDG 4, 22.26 percent of total grant dollars), good health and well-being (SDG 3, 18.89 percent), sustainable cities and communities (SDG 11, 12.79 percent), no poverty (SDG 1, 9.61 percent), and life on land/sustainable ecosystems and biodiversity (SDG 15, 9.32 percent). On a year-over-year basis, however, the share of total funding directed to ending poverty fell from 17.69 percent of the total in 2016 to 7.13 percent in 2019, while giving for life on land//sustainable ecosystems and biodiversity rose from 0.92 percent to 12.97 percent.
