How Submit.com Supports SDGs
The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) represent an ambitious global agenda aimed at eradicating poverty, protecting the planet, and fostering peace and prosperity for all by 2030. These 17 goals encompass a wide range of critical issues, from reducing inequality and achieving gender equality to ensuring clean water and affordable clean energy. Achieving the SDGs requires collective action, and philanthropists and foundations play a crucial role in advancing these global goals.
The Challenge of Measuring and Reporting on SDG Contributions
While philanthropists and foundations are committed to driving positive change, quantifying and communicating the impact of their initiatives on the SDGs can be a complex task. Traditional grant application and management processes often lack the tools needed to effectively assess and report on the alignment with the SDGs, impact indicators, and budget allocation. This creates a gap in understanding how resources are being directed towards the achievement of these global goals.
Furthermore, collaboration and learning from other actors in the field can be challenging when data is scattered, communication is limited, and best practices are not readily shared. To meet these challenges head-on, philanthropists and foundations need a streamlined solution that integrates the essential aspects of grant management while promoting SDG alignment and impact assessment.
