InterAction is the largest alliance of U.S.-based international nongovernmental organizations (NGOs), with more than 190 members working in every developing country. Members are faith-based and secular, large and small, with a focus on the world’s most poor and vulnerable populations.
The U.S. public, foundations and others support the efforts of our membership via funding totaling more than $13 billion a year, according to 2009 estimates. InterAction’s funds come from dues and generous grants from others, such as foundations.
Using its collective voice, InterAction seeks to shape important policy decisions on relief and long term development issues, including foreign assistance, the environment, women, health, education and agriculture. Members are at the forefront in responding to humanitarian crises and disasters worldwide and InterAction acts as a hub in these efforts.
InterAction tracks where members work via interactive mapping tools, such as one used after the 2010 earthquake in Haiti and another which plots food security projects. Our flagship monthly publication, Monthly Developments Magazine, and other policy papers and documents, showcase the work of our members and highlight trends and best practices in the sector.
Alliance members adhere to standards drawn up by InterAction, which aim to ensure accountability and transparency in financial management, fundraising, governance and program performance.
A peaceful, just and prosperous world of nations with inclusive and sustainable societies.
