Hello again, and thanks for getting back to me.
I'm providing a rather brief answer to your question, because I think
the links below (along with the one I already provided) identify tens
of thousand of the doing-good sorts of organizations you asked about,
and should give you all the information you need.
However, if I've misconstrued your question at all -- or if you need
additional information -- just let me know by posting a Request for
Clarification, and I'll be happy to assist you further.
By the way, you've asked a very interesting and intriguing series of
questions here at GA...thanks for being part of it all.
First off, pay a visit to Idealist.org at:
Since this site is devoted to compiling information on organizations
that do good in the world, you might want to spend some time exploring
it. However, the actual list of more than 45,000 organizations can be
seen by clicking on the link (right hand side of the page) that says
"Organizations", which will lead you to a search form:
Leave the search form blank, click on the button that says
"alphabetically", and then click "Search", and you'll get a list of
all 45,000+ organizations.
Of course, you can also access the list by country, or by the "Area of
Focus", if those options are of interest to you.
A similar sort of site -- with a similarly large directory -- is here:
Welcome to the directory of development organizations
The directory of development organizations, listing 43.500 development
organizations, has been prepared to facilitate international
cooperation and knowledge sharing in development work, both among
civil society organizations, research institutions, governments and
the private sector.
The directory aims to promote interaction and active partnerships
among governments, private sector and key development organisations in
civil society, including NGOs, trade unions, faith-based
organizations, indigenous peoples movements, foundations and research
centres. In creating opportunities for dialogue with governments and
private sector, civil society organizations are helping to amplify the
voices of the poorest people in the decisions that affect their lives,
improve development effectiveness and sustainability and hold
governments and policymakers publicly accountable.
You can download the directories one region at a time (e.g. Africa).
A much smaller list, but one that looks to be well-targeted, is here:
These are a list of NGOs (non-governmental ogranizations) affiliated
with the United Nations.
Finally, you can find directories of directories here:
In addition to the organizations listed right on the page, there are
also many links to categories of organizations (e.g. Child Welfare)
that you may want to explore.
Again, if you need anything else, just let me know.
