It also supported six global projects on the post-2015 development agenda, national efforts to prevent and respond to sexual and gender-based violence, the global partnership for effective development cooperation, global advocacy and policy outreach of the Trust Fund, UN Millennium Campaign and Ebola response.

 In 2016, the MDG Trust Fund was renamed to SDG TF in an amendment to the agreement in order to reflect the goals of Agenda 2030.
