Non-Governmental Organization (also known as a non-governmental agency or group; commonly abbreviated as NGO), is a group organized for the purpose of influencing political decisions or contributing to/supporting popular movements, while not being officially affiliated with any particular branch of government in theory (but typically having some form of ties to a political party, in practice).


Affiliations

Despite not typically being officially owned by a particular political party or leader, affiliations are often strong in public (or behind closed doors).

An NGO may be affiliated with any of the following:

  • Community
  • City
  • Region
  • Nation
  • International cause/issue/group
  • Company
  • Union or other group
  • Political Party/Campaign or a specific Politician
