The Council on Foundations estimates that over the next 15 years, the philanthropic community will make more than $360 billion in grants to support the U.N. Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
And yet, experts estimate that trillions of dollars will be needed to achieve the SDGs.
How will these investments be made to ensure results that last? At Counterpart, we believe it will be through partnerships that build the capacity of local communities to lead the change.
The Results that Last Campaign offers philanthropists and social investors the opportunity to leverage investments for greater impact over the long haul. The Campaign will help investors go beyond technical assistance and short-term project goals—because we know that behind every challenge one project may solve, another challenge awaits. True impact is realized when local citizens gain the skills and capacity to respond to the next challenge and lead their communities on their own.
To create systemic change, Counterpart believes resources must also flow down to communities most in need and most under-resourced. To leverage every dollar for maximum impact, the Results that Last Campaign will build the assets of local people, organizations and social sector networks to be the solution creators the SDGs will require.
We welcome the opportunity to learn more about your philanthropic goals and how we can work together to achieve them through the Results that Last Campaign.
