Foundations and philanthropists can help achieve the SDGs, through community experience, and additional and alternative sources of financing. Philanthropists also provide significant non-financial contributions with new and innovative models for giving programme-related investments, impact investing, trainings, and new approaches to targeted interventions. 

More and more foundations are providing funding to developing countries, and to new partners outside their local communities and countries of origin, and increasingly contributing to efforts that help achieve the Sustainable Development Goals.
