Star NGOs : Practically speaking, all non corrupt NGOs doing real work for communities, nations and climate are STAR NGOs. But there are some NGOs which are supported by STARS (Philanthropists who donate more than $100 000 or nationally known celebrities or key funding agencies or corporate foundations or UN or NGOs founded by ASHOKA fellows).

Our plan
20 000 NGOs from all issues (STAR NGO issues)
Period : 15.3.2020 to 31.12.2020
Instead of sharing countrywise NGOs, we share STAR NGOs issuewise.

We know the donors and volunteers are focussed and they want to know the country of the NGO.

If the NGO works in 5 issues, then what ?
There are NGOs which work on many issues, so we will share them issuewise, which means if the NGO is doing programmes in 5 issues, we will share them in 5 STAR NGO issue folders. We can share maximum 5 issues (even if the NGO works in 10 issues)

And just because we have taken the NGO in 5 STAR NGOs issue folder, we will not number it as 5 because we are taking number of NGOs, so here it will be just 1 NGO. In simple words, we will not take 4000 NGOs working on 5 issues and say we have shared 20000 names because we are actually sharing only 4000 NGO names. So we will share 20000 NGOs.

 

Format

Name of the NGO with link to its official website
If the NGO has no official website, then just the address and contact numbers (Not contact email address because many organisations sell emails and you can buy it from them, if that is what you want)

Headquarter location (in some cases address)

NGO taken because


Is this NGO recommended by CSRidentity.com ?

NO
If we are recommending an NGO, then we have to study it properly and that is not our focus in 2020-2021. But we know that anyone donating to an NGO or volunteering with an NGO, wants credibility check of the NGO and that is why we will share "NGO taken because ..." where we will share the supporter of the NGO and in some cases, we may say that the CSRidentity.com founder knows the NGO

In no case, we will
1) Take any money from NGO to put their name in STAR NGOs category 2) not share the name even if the NGO pays hugh amount of money to share their name. We will share it because of their supporter is a Celebrity or founder is ASHOKA Fellow or the NGO is supported by well known funding agency or by UN or by corporate foundation.
3) not share the NGO if more than 10% of the NGO earning in through events, workshops, raising money for other NGOs as agency.
4) for disclaimers, click here

How can NGOs or corporates be seen in this folder ?
On top of every page of this folder there is provision to share the name with link to the official website of the NGO or corporate.
Again, no agency which earns more than 10% of its income through events, workshops, raising money for other NGOs will be allowed on top of the page even if it is legally registered as corporate or NGO because we respect all legalities but have clear rules of who or who should not be on site.
