Meet the Top 500 NGOs

Welcome to NGO ADVISOR, our rankings, and the many organizations hosted on our platform that deserve your support. Every year, we publish a list of the world’s Top 500 NGOs, a unique feature that highlights the strongest innovation, impact, and governance in the nonprofit sphere. Our comprehensive research and robust methodology offer a thorough picture of the sector.

You can find the NGOs that we consider to be the most innovative by using the search bar or the Filter NGO feature on the All NGOs page. There, you will also find all of the organizations that have decided to take part in our review process in order to commit themselves to transparency and accountability, regardless of whether they are ranked in the Top 500.

We do not rank business and industry NGOs or organizations whose primary mission is religious conversion. We also do not rank organizations dedicated solely to nature or conservation, though these organizations deserve great respect.

Engage with Organizations

NGO ADVISOR scores, rates, and ranks nonprofits for the benefit of both NGOs and their beneficiaries. These rankings serve as a source of information for organizations’ supporters, including present and potential stakeholders, donors, volunteers, and employees.

Our platform also presents the nonprofit sector to a larger audience, including mainstream media, students, researchers, diplomats, and members of local, national, and global governing entities. Explore our list and read our NGO profiles to find a new organization to work for, study, fund, report on, and more.

The nonprofit sector is first and foremost about people taking action to help others. We encourage you to follow that philosophy, whether by volunteering with, donating to, or becoming a partner of the NGOs listed here. Using our platform, you can take action today!
