THESE ARE UNUSUAL DAYS.
THESE ARE UNUSUAL DAYS.
LET’S GET THINGS DONE, TOGETHER!
SDG Circle Members are given access to some of this year’s most prestigious events, each event being enhanced by SDG Circle community gatherings intended to grow strong ties between members that help foster “omniwin” partnerships for a better world.
ACCESS TO COMMUNITIES OF INFLUENCE
We create welcoming experiences as part of world-shaping events that result in impactful interactions.
We advocate for members through an intentional process of cultivation relationships and recognizing giftedness.
OMNIWIN PARTNERSHIPS STRATEGY
We design possible partnership models for SDG Circle members to accelerate each person’s work in the world.
On the International Day of Women (March 8, 2018), 5th Element Group PBC sponsored the launch of The Decade Of Women at the United Nations Headquarters in New York. At that gathering, an SDG-inspired donor advised fund and a collaborative community (now called The SDG Circle) were announced to accelerate the path to achieving the UN’s Global Goals by 2030.
MAKE THE IMPOSSIBLE POSSIBLE WITH US.
We stand at a precipice of an incredible opportunity to create and deliver moonshots that will transform our future.

FLOATING IN DARKNESS
PRE-ORDER ACTIVATION BEGINS
Ron Garan, former NASA Astronaut and Co-founder of 5th Element, builds on the success of his first book Orbital Perspective with a powerful new book called Floating In Darkness. Ron’s new book inspires collective action from the perspective of awe and wonder, versus the perspective of fear and divisiveness. Contact us to request a copy of one of Ron’s books, or to book his epic multi-media presentation at your next event.
THE SDG CIRCLE COMMUNITY
We believe that relational, cross-silo collaboration is essential to building omniwin partnerships to achieve the UN Sustainable Development Goals. To facilitate that, we created a community of the like-minded, called The SDG Circle.
As a community of brand leaders, institutional donors, impact investors and SDG solution-makers, we participate in some of the world’s most celebrated events relating to socio-economic and environmental impact — and we even help host events all our own. We also work to serve each SDG Circle member with services and experiences personalized to them and their lifework agenda.

WHY WE PARTNER WITH A DONOR ADVISED FUND
TAX PLANNING BENEFITS
A DAF facilitates tax-beneficial giving options for our donor-investors and helps to align investment capital by converting donations into funding accounts for Mission-Related Investments (“MRI”).
A DAF can accept liquid and illiquid assets including collectibles, real estate, stocks, bonds and cash. A DAF can also accepts digital assets as well, with no fiat conversion required.
A community of donors can leverage the services and resources of other partners/donors to multiply the impact of their donation through match giving, collective marketing, contests, etc.
SDG People® is a story-catching campaign to share the unique contributions of people all over the world to make an impact toward the achievement of the UN SDGs by 2030. We will share here pictures, stories, profiles and award-winners who inspire us in our shared efforts to create a more flourishing humanity. We also share below the work we commissioned from Ralph Reutimann as part of his SDG Impact Heroes® Series.
