CAMPAIGN: JK Group's Long Term Giving Best Practices


When most of us hear of the United Nations, we think of activities such as their aid work for refugees, eradicating diseases such as malaria or supplying blue-uniformed peace-keeping forces in places like Africa. But the UN is onto something much bigger this month… on September 25, 2015, all 193 member states of the United Nations (UN) will commit to 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) under the banner Transforming our World: The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development – to achieve three overarching and truly global outcomes over the next 15 years - ending extreme poverty, fighting inequality and injustice, and addressing climate changein all countries, for all people. And the UN wants your support to make all this happen.

Businesses Stand to Benefit

Moreover, there are good reasons for businesses to get directly involved in promoting these 17 SDGs because what’s good for the world, is good for business. As President of the UN Foundation Kathy Calvin elaborates, 93% of CEOs believe the goals will boost future business success and private sector engagement will empower people to move from poverty to prosperity by driving economic growth and job creation.
