InterAction is the largest coalition of U.S.-based international nongovernmental organizations (NGOs) focused on the world’s poor and most vulnerable people.
Collectively, InterAction’s more than 165 members work in every developing country. Members meet people halfway in expanding opportunities and supporting gender equality in education, health care, agriculture, small business, and other areas.
The U.S. public shows its support for this work through contributions to InterAction members totaling around $6 billion annually. InterAction leverages the impact of this private support by advocating for the expansion of U.S. government investments and by insisting that policies and programs are responsive to the realities of the world’s poorest and most vulnerable populations.
InterAction''s Bold New Agenda for Relief and Development
InterAction’s comparative advantage rests on the uniquely field and practitioner-based expertise of its members, who assist in compiling data on the impact of NGO programs as a basis for promoting best practices and for evidence-based public policy formulation.
Neither InterAction nor its members bear lightly the responsibility of the trust the American people place in us. As such, members adhere to InterAction’s high standards that help assure accountability in the critical areas of financial management, fundraising, governance, and program performance.
InterAction brings the values and experience of the NGO community into the broader development and humanitarian assistance community through strategic alliances with key partners around particular issues and objectives. These partnerships further leverage InterAction’s political, intellectual, and financial capital.
