About Us

The MDG Awards Committee is a not for profit organization whose mission is to understand support for achieving the implementation of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), to serve as a catalyst in disseminating information to the wider public, and to recognize the contributions of a wide variety of stakeholders in the fight to attain implementation of the MDGs by the target date of 2015.

Through our efforts we:

Shine a spotlight on those that are making exceptional progress and help generate public support for their projects. Rally and provide support for those who need assistance Highlight exemplars in the civil society community to promote the message that corporations and other organizations can "do well" by "doing good". Recognize the efforts of governments and the members of the NGO community that are making exceptional efforts to honor their commitment to help achieve the United Nations Millennium Development Goals. Through recognition and fund development help support those smaller and individual efforts that are making an impact but do not have the reach to increase their success . We accomplish our mission through a series of programs our MDG Awards Ceremony at the United Nations General Assembly Hall honoring exceptional efforts to achieve the MDGs, and Public-Private Partnerships.
