ABOUT MILLIONAIRES FOR HUMANITY
Millionaires for Humanity advocates for a wealth tax of 1% on multimillionaires, to support the COVID-19 recovery, tackle poverty and climate change and achieve the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
Research by the UN Sustainable Development Solutions Network highlighted the funding gap for the world to meet the Sustainable Development Goals and the resources that a 1% wealth tax could raise to help enable this.
Millionaires for Humanity aims to help address this funding gap in partnership with all stakeholders, such as the UN, governments, finance think tanks, and grassroots organisations.
