SDG-themed Foundation Funds launched: Here’s all you need to know about Bright Fund’s latest initiative
Leading workplace philanthropy platform Bright Funds launched its latest Foundation Funds that represents each of the 17 United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. Within each Fund is a group of nonprofits operating worldwide.
It is an effort to offer employers as well as employees a chance to anchor their philanthropic giving around making progress towards the Sustainable Development Goals.
“We’re thrilled to launch the Bright Funds SDG Foundation Funds. The Bright Funds SDG Foundation Funds were developed as a ready made tool for donor engagement. These Funds create a framework for employers, employees and nonprofits to address complex issues using the common language of the SDGs. These Funds will inspire employers and nonprofits alike to think big, innovate toward impact and reimagine what’s possible when working together on a shared vision,” said Thara Jinadasa, VP of Nonprofit Services at Bright Funds.
First adopted in 2015, SDGs aim for a world where there’s peace and prosperity for both people as well as the planet by ending extreme poverty, reducing inequities and overcoming other deprivations by the year 2030.
