Solutions that Drive Impact

Delivering solutions and leveraging ideas that can make a difference to grow any organization, its reputation, impact, and governance, is what comes first. Our focus is to help the nonprofit sector and its many players to gain more leverage out of innovation, intelligence, and good governance. By leveraging data and insights across the entire sector with our scoring and evaluating experience and methodology we multiply opportunities for greater impact.

Since October 2018, NGO Advisor is requesting from any new participating organization to either purchase the Fill in & Submit solution, or become a member of NGO Advisor Premium Club to create its profile and fill an NGO Advisor’s online form to be reviewed and scored. The same request is made to organizations that have not yet claimed their profile. Due to the many applications, NGO Advisor has set this new policy for a stronger engagement in the process to become part of the leading community of the ‘for-Social Profit Organizations’ (SPOs).

The 2019 rankings will be announced on January 29, 2019. Deadline for updating its profile is December 5, 2018.

The Top NGOs rankings exists since 2011 and were published for the first time in January 2012. Initially a Top 100 with a journalistic approach, it became a Top 500 in 2015 with a complete new methodology based on greater academic substratum. Over these years, our focus was methodology, methodology, methodology. Our major concern about the listing was “Please, not just the big orgs”. We managed both. Today our focus goes to data and solutions.

At NGO Advisor, we do review and score nonprofits since 2011. We estimate that beyond the 10+ millions nonprofits in the world, about 50,000 of them are ultimately driving the evolution of the sector – we agree that we include in that number start-ups and well-established organizations. Meaning that we have room for progress and that we appreciate if you reach out from your corner of the planet.


The Fill in and Submit pass is a one-shot fee for organizations willing to be put on NGO Advisor radar. A once-and-for-all fee. Your organization will be reviewed and scored from then on, every year, provided that you update and document your organization information.

Please note that if you decide to join the Premium Club and/or earn an SPO Certificate, the 250 CHF fee will be discounted from your Premium Club membership fee and/or SPO Certificate.
