Abstract

Constellations of organisations are important partners in the implementation of the 2030 Agenda and the achievement of all SDGs (EU, 2021; UNGC, 2021). The EU and the UN consider that private foundations have a role to play in fulfilling these goals. They are organisations that can make a contribution through funding and by using their potential to mobilise actors involved. Although they are recognised as having a role in reaching the SDGs, there is little work on how these foundations can be stronger players in the attainment of these goals.

This benchmarking report extends existing knowledge of the practices that foundations engaged in connection with the 2030 Agenda and the SDGs, so that these practices can inspire and/or stimulate the reflection of third-party foundations that are seeking to improve their performance in relation to the SDGs.
