About this grant

The project goal is to help community foundations advance the Sustainable Development Goals at the local level. Over the past grant period, Candid regularly convened an SDG Working Group of researchers and philanthropy-serving organizations focused on promoting the adoption of the goals by community foundations within and outside the U.S. Over the next two years, the grantee will position CF Insights, a service of Candid which collects and shares data and conducts an analysis that helps community foundations, to improve their performance as a global hub for data collection and peer learning to promote further adoption of the goals. The grantee will expand the CF Insights data platform to include community foundations operating outside the U.S., host regular convenings of the SDG Working Group and develop an online peer learning resource platform. Candid was established in 2019 as the result of a merger between Foundation Center and GuideStar.
