Local Leadership, Global Impact: Community Foundations and the Sustainable Development Goals

The North American Community Foundations Summit presented numerous opportunities for learning and sharing—and big announcements including the release of a new report, Local Leadership, Global Impact: Community Foundations and the Sustainable Development Goals.

Local Leadership, Global Impact continues the conversation we started in Mexico City about how community foundations, using the framework of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), can leverage their knowledge and expertise to make an even bigger local and global impact.

We hope you will share our Local Leadership, Global Impact report widely including with your colleagues, board members, volunteers, and funders. The report is free to download and includes:

  • An introduction to the 17 SDGs
  • Ten steps to get started on the SDGs
  • Case studies from community foundations around the world

Local Leadership, Global Impact is an effective and easy way to help you start the conversation about how your community foundation can leverage the SDGs to improve the quality of life for all in and beyond your community.
