Companies using Benojo to power corporate philanthropy can now pick the SDGs their organisation supports.

Project implemented: June 2018

Project goal

Make it easy for companies to show, in real time, their progress against their selected SDGs.

delivering on

why is this project important?

As an Australian social enterprise, we're committed to helping charities & businesses measurably change the world together

Key steps to make it happen

1Select company SDGs

Companies can now showcase the Goals they're committed to contributing towards

2Map activity to SDGs

Every $ raised or hour volunteered adds to the company total for each SDG (being built)

Smaller companies are showing interest in considering which SDGs they'd be able to contribute towards - many weren't aware of them until they heard about it via Benojo. Larger businesses are starting to add SDGs which they've already identified as those they can align to.

Companies across the world already engage in giving programs that are progressing efforts against existing SDGs. We aim to help connect these activities to relevant Development Goals in an accurate, measurable way.

At present, any company on Benojo can select the SDGs they’re committed to working on by selecting and displaying them on their Benojo company profile. Our software engineers are currently working on connecting specific fundraising and volunteering campaigns to these SDGs – giving real-time reports on how these Goals are being supported.

This makes it easy for any business to:

  • Highlight which Development Goals their organisation is tackling
  • Easily include SDG progress in annual sustainability reports
  • Opt to show real-time impact data for each SDG to employees, investors, customers and even the public
  • Advertise their commitment to their chosen Goals to gain support for related giving initiatives
