Description

About InterAction:
InterAction is the largest U.S.-based coalition of international nongovernmental organizations (NGOs)
with 175+ members working around the world in low- and middle-income countries, fragile and post conflict states, and emerging/growth economies. Member organizations are large and small, secular and faith-based, with a focus on people living in the world’s most poor and vulnerable places. The U.S.
public, foundations, and governments support the work of our member NGOs that collectively invest
and manage more than $15.4 billion a year. InterAction revenues come from dues, government grants,
private foundation and corporate grants, and a fee-for-service program portfolio. Using its collective
voice and convening power, InterAction seeks to shape important policy decisions and actions across a
wide range of issues – including foreign assistance, humanitarian relief, development, economic equity,
food security, and climate change – that advance human dignity, human potential, and self determination. InterAction simultaneously serves as a platform for networked learning so that
organizations across the sector can adapt and evolve their cultures and operations to best deliver on
their missions.
