Good2Give is excited to share an innovative new research project that you can participate in, show you how Facebook is strengthening communities and give you an update on the Sustainable Development Goals.
Be part of an innovative Government initiative
Good2Give is working with the Behavioural Economics Team of the Australian Government (BETA) on an exciting initiative to test tactics that will be most effective in improving charitable donations in the workplace. We are looking for companies with Workplace Giving programs to join this important trial. If you are interested in taking part, please email us before 12pm on Friday 16 August.
Facebook Australia Groups Fund
Facebook Groups is the place where communities come to connect, share information and support one another from busy suburbs to quiet rural towns around Australia. This is what led Facebook to create the Facebook Australia Groups Fund which they established in 2018. By partnering with Good2Give, Facebook has provided individual grants of up to $5,000 to Australian Facebook Groups to support, empower and strengthen communities both offline and online. This program has helped Facebook Groups such as Central West Mums, The Institute of Many and Deadly Yarnin’ to create a greater positive impact in their community.
In July, Good2Give attended the inaugural meeting of Impact2030 in Australia, which is a global movement for good focused on harnessing the power of people and partnerships to advance the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals. Australia signed up to be part of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development in September 2015 and has actively participated in international discussions to design the 2030 Agenda.
The SDGs have been set and lead by the United Nations to create a powerful impact in gender equality and climate action as well as ending poverty, hunger and giving every human a right to quality education.
Good2Give is supportive of how corporates can identify SDG gaps, capture relevant information and apply achievable SDGs in the workplace. To find out more and to sign up, click here.
