What is IMPACT 2030 and What are the Global Goals?
IMPACT 2030 is a collaboration of employees and companies around the world to focus their philanthropic efforts on specific goals. Instead of singular and disjointed efforts, IMPACT 2030 unites everyone under the banner of the Global Goals.
The Global Goals (also called Sustainable Development Goals) were agreed upon by the United Nations in 2016. The goals are 17 specific, actionable, and relevant goals to achieve by the year 2030. They paint a picture of a better world. But they are all achievable with the participation of nonprofits, donors, volunteers, companies, and employees.
The purpose of IMPACT 2030 is to align companies and their employee volunteer efforts with the Global Goals, advance the practice of employee volunteering, and to create real and sustainable change
The 17 Global Goals
If there is a specific goal that speaks to you or your company, take action. Check out the Global Goals resource center which includes media assets to share your support for specific goals. Please help spread the word for the Global Goals at your organization. This video gives an overview of the goals:
What is YourCause Doing?
YourCause is providing a platform for clients to take their CSR platform one step further in pursuit of the Goals. We are building an Impact Measurement tool that will focus on measuring how the employee’s engagement translates in the real world. So instead of measuring money given, it’ll measure amount of clothes, gallons of water, vaccines, etc. As our product and client-facing impact tools develop, we will continue to post updates.
Impact Measurement Tool
YourCause is creating a tool embedded in the nonprofit portal that will allow nonprofits (NPO) to record and align their programs/services with one or more Sustainable Development Goals (SDG). Aside from aligning their charity with an SDG NPOs will be able to record the percentage of dollars and volunteer time that they attribute towards achieving each SDG they support. NPOs will have the ability to take it a step further and map the percentage of donations and volunteer time that they attribute to specific programs targeted to address the SDGs that their charity has aligned with.
With your help, we can achieve real progress by 2030.
