How Partnerships Deliver Social Impact

Partnerships across the social, public, and private sectors often play the most powerful role in addressing the toughest societal challenges.

Partnering Across Sectors to Achieve the SDGs

Significant progress has been made towards reaching the UN’s Sustainable Development goals so far, but there are still countless resources to be unleashed and capabilities to be tapped into. Many are in nonprofit organizations or in government, but complementing these is a private sector increasingly willing and able to make giant contributions to finding new solutions to seemingly intractable problems. None of these actors, however, can develop the most innovative, effective solutions alone. To make rapid progress, the most powerful tool we have is partnership.
